To Enjoy Good Food, Good Conversation
I love the tiny kitchen table we have in The Little House, but that wasn’t always the case. Scrounging for a small kitchen table was my first foray into second-hand shops when we built The Little House.
I found the perfect kitchen table that was well, less than perfect. It was one of those early 90s models with the fake wood glued on (although the fake wood was peeling off) and it caught my eye because it had two matching chairs with the fake wood bottoms and green backs.
My mom went with me to the thrift store and we didn’t think it was a bad purchase, but Dale hated the set, even when I bought a dark green tablecloth to cover its’ imperfections.
He set his mind to replacing it ASAP and I found the set pictured above at Nebraska Furniture Mart. It came with two chairs, but we keep an extra two in the house from our larger set that is in our storage building.
Space in the kitchen is really tight and when we bought this set, I was looking for a small drop leaf set that could expand should we have guests over for dinner.
This has ended up being the perfect set.
Other things I love in my little kitchen include a ½ baking sheet, and a teeny-tiny pastry brush. When I hosted the slumber party here at The Little House back in October, my friend, Lora, shared a recipe that requires brushing rolls with melted butter and I made this find in a kitchen store in downtown Eureka Springs during our visit last fall.
