It's funny how something as simple as an actual dining chair at your table can make all the difference. We have been using the Costco folding chairs for almost 9 years. And while they have served us well they leave a lot to be desired in the esthetic department. I have been wanting to buy new chairs for years now and on a whim stopped off at RC Willey the other day to just see what they had. Well we found four chairs that were $29.99 each, a deal I could not pass on. They have changed the whole look of our kitchen. I love them. We also bought two others of a different style as extras but we use one in our room and Dave volunteered the other for my sewing room, isn't he the coolest. I told Dave I feel like a real grownup now without the hand-me-downs or garage sale finds. Now I want to paint the table and the tops of our bedside tables. Maybe a project I can tackle this summer. The more I do, the longer my list becomes, because one change here and then that makes me see 2 or 3 other things I would like to do. Boy, oh boy, I have a feeling I am never going to be quite satisfied.
