Our new midcentury sideboard is in the back and in the photo below - we love it! It's the perfect stand for our giant espresso maker, and a great organizer for office & craft supplies, kitchen overflow, and all of those other odds & ends you can never find an actual place for. Think of it as a giant junk drawer, but much more organized!
Here are the banana leaf Ikea Alseda Stools (only $29.99 each!) we bought that bring you up to the perfect dining height - they were stacked up on the other side of the room from when I was cleaning, but they look perfect around the table. Trust me, really!
What is your take on this? Good idea or hormonal craziness?? Don't worry - we kept the regular legs and can always go back to our high top table when elderly relatives come to visit or when we feel the need to teach the baby some serious table manners. For now, we're diggin' it!
