True to our word, we've been attempting to entertain more often. We're taking advantage of having a dining room table and we're cooking more often. One thing we're getting the hang of is not getting too formal when we have people over. A little mess here, a pile of papers there, it's normal and human so we're not stressing about it. And in the same way, our mismatched dining room chairs add to the put your elbows on the table, kick off your shoes and take it easy, we're all friends here attitude.

The other great advantage to not matching your dining chairs is that when you find a lone chair at a thrift store, you can pick it up and add it to the rest. We love being able to change things around. Sometimes a chair from ikea or west elm is on sale and begging to be brought home, who are we to say no?
