The first dining room server, in a gorgeous shade of red, was a bust. Covered in fiberglass.
But the second one I found at Hobby Lobby, already put together, is the dining room server I really should have picked out in the first place. Except I hadn’t seen it yet.
This one cost $199. The first one was $130. I suppose they didn’t charge for the massive amounts of fiberglass all over the pieces that had to be put together. So the one from HL was $70 more. But oh, so worth it.
It is a great size for an apartment or other small home.
A sturdy piece of furniture:
It is quite sturdy, in a nice rustic shade. I took Nathan along on his lunch break Friday to check it out. He deemed it worth the price.
Nothing to put together, thank goodness. I shall be wary of all furniture that needs to be put together after the Walmart experience.
I love the galvanized features on the doors and the top. No wood to get scraped up on the surface with daily wear and tear. I love it as my new coffee bar.
Not only that, but this one has lots of storage. I have my daily dishware in the bottom, handy to grab and place on the table. I was looking for something different because of the dust and I wanted added storage space.
There’s also room for dog and cat food and a variety of other kitchen items that needed a permanent spot.
So far Ivy hasn’t knocked any of her toys underneath it. There’s only about an inch open at the bottom part way across.
Nathan is using the blue cupboard right now. The back was coming off of it. I was tired of nailing it back on.
It’s just so hard to get a good photo in this narrow space. So every one is a side view.
Hobby Lobby’s furniture is regularly 30 percent off. So that was nice. I had not purchased furniture there before.
They are adding more and more furniture as time goes by. Lots of modern and farmhouse pieces.
You have to really look their stuff over. Some of it is rather flimsy. I lucked out on this piece though.
Wood Tones Warm A Home:
I’m glad I found this one because it’s actually much nicer than the red one. And I like the wood tones. They warm up your home. The galvanized features are an added bonus.
Everything is lined up. Nothing is wonky or doesn’t fit well. Thus I’m very pleased with it. I’m rather OCD about such things.
If a knob or anything else is not spaced exactly right then that’s all I can see when I look at a piece of furniture.
Now what do you fur babies think? Mama had to work hard to get all the fiberglass cleaned up. Then I thoroughly cleaned my vacuum and my Dyson hand held vacuum. And had Nathan change the filter for the heat and air.
Charlie does seem to like the new Sleep Number bed. Hard to tell with Ivy as she isn’t in one spot for very long.
I have 100 days to decide if this is the mattress I want, so that’s good. They say it takes about 30 days to acclimate. And since I bought the cheapest mattress, I would have to go up instead of down.
The babies seem to be happy as long as Mama is happy. And Mama is happy with this server in the dining room.
