While visiting my family over Easter way down in the deep South (so far you are almost in the Gulf of Mexico) I went antiquing with my Mom and sister. We went through floors and floors of antique stores and junk stores too (those are the fun ones). I stepped inside one and walked like a robot with my arms out to a dining room set with beautiful cane chairs. As I was looking it over I thought there is just no way this is going to be affordable. To my surprise it was! I mulled and mulled over whether I should get it. My mother said I was never going to find a deal like this. And it was true I had been looking for a long time. So I talked the store owner down another 200 bucks and it was mine! It is a beautiful table with really pretty wood grain on top with 2 leaves and eight chairs! And they are all upholstered. After I paid the guy I walked around mumbling incoherently the rest of the shopping trip. I was half excited and half "I can't believe I just bought that I hope Jason (my husband) likes it because I didn't even ask him if he wanted a new dining room set." :) But all husbands want a new dining room set, right?
Here is a pic of one of the chairs from my phone. I was so in shock after I paid the guy I didn't get very good pics.
I don't even know what is under all of those Marilyn Monroe plates on the table. From what I saw the top had a lovely wood grain pattern that I plan to keep stained and paint the rest. I'm not crazy over the table but the deal was worth the chairs alone.
Here are some pics to show why I am so excited.

Now I just have to figure out how to get it to my house! I have no truck and its six hours away! I plan on painting and reupholstering the chairs when I get my hands on them (hopefully soon!).
