Velentine's Day Table, 2019

This is my first tablescape on this new old table that I just bought. I bought the whole set, round table and 7 chairs for $99. I painted them afterwards and you will see the newly painted ones in the last pictures.

 We used to have a square table with 4 chairs here. If you have read my blog in the past, you would know that my daughter and her family live next door and that we alternate preparing dinners, so every other day, all seven of us eat here. The 3 grandkids used to eat on the kitchen counter but now we get to all eat together.
I used salad plates and soup bowls since we had shrimp toast, chicken noodle soup using bean noodles and cranberry rolls.

  I bought the plate chargers from Wisteria many years ago.
 For the kids, I used various heart plates.

 Cherubs or should I say cupid, for napkin rings.
 My centerpiece!

 I alternated the cupid napkin rings with these red beaded ones.

This was our old dinette set that I am donating to Salvation Army.
 This is the set that I just bought before I painted it. It is solid wood and in perfect condition. I told John that this set really belongs to us because I couldn't believe we were able to fit all these pieces in the back of our SUV. Also, when advertised, it said table with 6 chairs. The seller loaded the chairs while I rearranged them to fit in the vehicle and did not really count them but when we unloaded them, there were actually 7 chairs, so again, perfect for us.
Here is he set now after I painted 5 of the chairs, 2 more to go! I found a paint and stain from Rethunk Junque, that do not require sanding, so stained (dark walnut) and painted (linen) right in this area.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Happy Valentine's Day to all!
Thanks to the hostesses of the following memes that I am linking with too.

WOW! That already beautiful table and chairs is now even more beautiful Christine. I love how it turned out. Girl, you got a deal of a deal on that too. Love the tablescape and isn't so nice when everyone can eat in the same room? Happy Valentine's Day to you. Hugs and blessings, Cindy


Oh Christine, your romantic table is gorgeous, sweet and inviting.
I love those chargers, daughter Alexandra has them.
You did a great job painting the round table and chairs and what a deal too... I love them !
I did paint two years ago the chairs on my kitchen nook.
Hope you are enjoying Valentine's with your hubby and beautiful family.
