Table and Fall Decor

I'm not sure if I've mentioned on my blog how much trouble I have had in finding a kitchen table.

I know I've talked, and whined about it on twitter, but I can't remember if I blogged about it or not.

But anyways...I have had the HARDEST time finding a kitchen table. We moved into our house in March and starting searching immediately.

And continued searching, searching and searching. In the meantime I found a dining room table, but still no kitchen table.

We tossed around the idea of not even getting a kitchen table and doing something fun and funky with the area (although we had no idea what fun funky would be) but I couldn't get over the fact of not having a kitchen table.

Then one day we went into the "As Is" room at a local furniture store and I saw a table that I loved. It was everything I wanted. It was round, it came with a leaf, it was "shabby chic". Everything I wanted.

But it was in the "As Is" section so I figured something was wrong. I looked at the side and saw this:The side was "dinged" up a bit, but it really isn't noticeable.

See you can't even see it here:

And this is the best part....the table was originally $3,100. We paid $300! I can't even do that math we saved so much!!

I snatched that bad boy up immediately!

And with a little touch up wood something or other, that dinged up side won't even be noticeable.

It was WELL worth the wait.

Also in other news I put up a few Fall decorations. I don't have a lot, but I plan to grow my collection throughout the years.

Our fireplace. I think the black stains in the back add a nice touch:

The dining room, I got this centerpiece and runner from Hobby Lobby.
A cute little paper towel holder pumpkin. I got him at Kirkland's and love it.Some pumpkins on my little hutch thing (is this a hutch, I'm not sure what to call it)
So those are my fall decorations. I still need to get a fall wreath.

Happy Fall!
