A New Kitchen Table, New Kubu Stools and Some Fresh Paint

Hello Loves, I totally forgot to show you guys some changes I made in our kitchen. 
We got a new kitchen nook table a while back, and a couple of new KUBU stools 
(details of new furniture at end of post). I also changed the walls from chocolate 
brown to GAUNTLET GRAY by Sherwin Williams. I love the new paint color 
and will show you more of that soon. 

The table is 72 inches long, which is almost 20 inches longer than our old one. 
Truly super awesome because we live on our kitchen table and it really never looks like this...lol.

Since the table is so much bigger than the old one and we only had 4 matching chairs, 
I decided to get stools for the ends for additional seating. I chose KUBU stools 
because I think Wicker warms the look. 

I am in luv with the Gauntlet Gray SW Paint.

Notice our tortoise Willie basking under the heat lamp? 

Ok, here is the scoop on the furry stool covers. I found some gray furry seat 
covers at Home Goods which I love, but since they are square,  I had to get 
creative to keep the cover from slipping off the stool. I ended up sewing 
string on each corner and tying the string through the cracks in the wicker.

Here is where I got the stools:

Here is where I got the table (please note that there is a little story 
about the table, when it arrived from Overstock the color did not look as pictured. 
It had a very heavy whitewash on it which did not go in our house. Since I loved 
everything else about the table, I simply sanded off most of the heavy white 
paint and put on a clear paint sealant. I actually took pictures of that process but 
can not find them now....DUHHHH

Ok sweets, that's what I got for you this week. 
I hope you like what I did so far. I will share 
more pics of the freshly painted kitchen soon!
