My Dining Table Gets an Upgrade!

Well to me it's an upgrade.  I'm just so tired of my table cloth, it's vinyl and not very pretty.  I figured since I have to clean the table every day regardless I would ditch the table cloth and buy a glass top for it.  I can't leave it totally unprotected, I mean lets get real I have children!  Enough said. 

So I dragged little Lauren out with me yesterday, to find a glass top. I was going to buy one off craigslist, but the price wasn't much different than a new one and I figured I'd let my kids be the first to scratch it.  Please not right away. 

Lauren had a blast at the furniture store, you would have thought we were at Disney!  She kept squealing "look at this chair!" or "this couch is so comfy!", and my favorite "can I have this room for my birthday!"  It was a living room set btw!  Which really made it that much funnier.  I just said yes and would you keep up.  It took 3 HOURS!  Mostly because she had to sit on every piece of furniture, and because I got lost going to their warehouse...oopsies!

We survived and now it's home and in place.  FYI, a 48 inch glass top is heavy, make sure someone helps you unload it and put it in place, and I'm talking not a three year old.  My arms are still sore, at one point I was like 'arms don't fail me now!' 

Before, ugly table cloth.

After, gorgeous wood grain!

I'm so glad I broke down and bought this, so worth it!  My glass is definitely half full.  The second best part, is was on sale!  Woo Hoo.

Thanks for stopping by! xx

I love your dining room!! I had a rug just like yours. We sold our house , so I gave the rug away! I loved the colors in it.

Oooh, so much nicer now. I like the clean look of the glass and no cloth. Just tell me you didn't carry that heavy thing all by yourself?!

Thanks for linking to the party.
