Just a little exterior update: the gravel has all been laid. We are waiting on two things: the firepit has been installed but we are getting a syar stone exterior added. And we are waiting for korten steel planter boxes to be finished and added to the courtyard area. Until then you can get a little peek from the picture below ;)
I have been on the lookout for the last 6 months for a couple of chairs to fill out the living area. They had to be low enough to not obstruct the views and needed them to match our sectional from Room and Board. Finally, two Adrian Pearsall chairs came up for sale on Ebay that looked absolutely perfect. I broke my rule of not buying from across the country and snatched them up. It took awhile for them to arrive because we had to arrange shipping ourselves. But I think it was worth it. They are the 2406-C for Craft Associates model shown here

And they go with the sectional really well! They are almost exactly the same height! I must admit I have been a little unsure about my decorating skills with this house. I wanted to hire someone but it was not in our budget. I'm kind of glad I ended up muddling along myself. It's been a lot of fun. I'm getting more confident with my purchases.
I especially enjoy mixing old with new. The only new things in the living area are the sectional, pillows and rug (also purchased at Room and Board). I'm proud to say everything else was purchased on Ebay!
Please tell me I am not the only
Another recent purchase, and I have just LUCKED out recently with Adrian Pearsall, is the small end table in between the chairs, also purchased on Ebay. This is model 2397 - TE Craft Associates pictured here.
Another walnut piece and if I didn't know any better, I would think it was brand new, it's in great condition. The top is crystal. Although I purchased the chairs and end table seperately, I'm really happy with how well they go together. The walnut from the chairs matches the walnut legs of the table perfectly.
Lastly, an evening shot of our dining table. I have not gotten around to re-upholstering the chairs yet. The light is this model, purchased from Lumens. I love how it glows, plus it has a dimmer.
That's all for now!
