We don’t have a dining room table.
Well, we had one, and I actually really liked it, but it was round and our new dining room isn’t. So we sold it.
This is it in my townhouse.
Nice, but just wouldn’t fit the new space quite right. So we saved a few of the applewood boards to make a harvest table.
Something like this.
My first question is this: With a kitchen/dining room layout that looks like this:
Do I want chairs all the way around the table, or do I want a bench on the side nearest the kitchen?
(D, if you’re reading this… I’m considering a bench. Do you know how to make benches??)
And my second question is: Above the dining room table, do I want to hang this light?
I think I do. I was also considering a pot rack light, but D very astutely pointed out that pot racks are meant for hanging pots on, and might be less appropriate dining room lighting, and more appropriate kitchen lighting.
Smart as a whip, that one.
So what do you think? Bench or chairs? Yay or nay on the light?
