It all started with a picture....

Do you remember this room from HGTV Candice Olson?
I loved this room when I watched this episode a few years ago
and still love it today.
Since moving in to the Pond House,
I have been drawn back to this picture.
See the kitchen table in the back?
I have been surfing the Internet
tonight trying to recreate the table and chairs.
Actually, we already have the table
just need the chairs.
Then in my search I found these other
to confuse me!

Does this happen to you?

Then we found a new inspirational picture
and we (Tony and I) were in agreement!
Guess what? Pottery Barn doesn't make the
bench any more!

I did find the chairs cheaper  
at Home Decorators, but no bench!
So my search will continue tomorrow...
because tonight I gave myself a headache!
Does this happen to you?

That is soo my world! Just when I think my mind is made up, something new pops into the picture. Best of luck finding what you're looking for! I know World Market has similar benches (sometimes), might be a start! :)

Yes of course it does, everyday! I love your inspiration picture...Candice rules!

Pamela said...

I soo loved that room as well! I actually had that episode Dvrd for awhile. Hope you are having fun decorating!:)

Allie and Pattie said...

Oh I love your inspirations! And in the new kitchen, your table will also serve as an island of sorts, right?? Perfect!

Happens to me all the time. But I do adore those metal chairs...what to choose?

Good luck!

"The Pond House" I just love the name... how perfectly fitting!
I've always loved this basement room by Candice as well! And yes, talk about confusion, that's why my office is still not painted! Good luck finding the perfect chairs and bench, I love each of your ideas so I don't think you could go wrong!

OH MY! You feel just the way I do...I need a new livingroom...rug, drapes everything. I have a bare room. Camo Man can not understand why I cant just pick something out and be done. But everytime I pick something out he turns his nose up, or worst yet what I pick clashes with the rest of the house!
My last post was on my kitchen curtains..too many choices.
Can wait to see how it all comes together, glad we bloggers have each other!

I love that you call you new house the Pond House. Maybe I missed that along the way but it is perfect!

Oh, I SO relate, Wendy. This is pretty much what happens iwth every decision. I spend hours searching and deciding, then I feel like I've gone in circles and I start over.

Love the aluminum chairs. Did I just see these somewhere? Target? Pier One? I can't remember but I remember loving them and thinking they were very affordable.

Love the bench, too.

And, anything Candice touches turns to gold in my book.

Best of luck finding something perfect for you!

Wendy, we all love to decorate and it drives us crazy doing it till we are done....then we sit back and enjoy all the fabulous-ness of it all. I love all of your inspiration photos. I always buy what I like from the cheapest source then search for the rest of the puzzle. Im sure you will find a bench to suit your style. And as I always suggest...try Craigslist in your surrounding area. Google benches and research the sources. Good luck...cant wait to see what you come up with!
