$40 CSN Stores Giveaway! ***CLOSED***

Sorry, kiddos--time's up!  Check back tomorrow (8/27/10) to see if you won!

Mr. Koala and I are counting down the days until our wedding: as of today, we have 149 days left (!).  As we look towards the future, I can't help but dream about the times we will share in the kitchen, baking away or preparing 'kitchen experiements' for dinner, then sitting down to share the meal.  At a real, grown-up table.  Our tableMy current living situation does not allow for much personal decorating or the purchasing of new furntiture, so you can imagine my excitement about getting (and decorating!) a home of our own.  Naturally, the first big furniture piece that comes to mind are kitchen tables.  How sweet would this be in our home?

Or maybe a cozy little breakfast nook?

Either way, I'm really looking forward to spending lots of time at the kitchen table with my future husband!  When we're ready to shop for our home, we'll be turning to the CSN Stores to browse their vast selection.  Comprised of 200+ stores, CSN Stores.com offers products such as furniture, home decor, housewares, home improvement, outdoor living items, baby & kids items, and even shoes & handbags!  Here are a few things on my "Want." list:

Adorably pink, peep toe patent pumps?  With ruffles?  Want.

  2. Easy,

    Been a sucker for white tables and chairs since I saw this beautiful, distressed white dining set in France. I ensure my current brown tables reasonably well... but someday, I'll redecorate and I'll have a lovely country chic dining room.

    I follow too. Which is how I notice these late night posts ;)

    Reposted because I'm apparently high on fruit leather fumes and cannot string two words together.

  3. I like the Wildon Home Crawford 5 Piece Dining Table with Wheat Back Side Chair in Rich Cappuccino - 211882Tfsjft.

    It has a traditional look but still has some style to it. Its not a huge table but not too small. And the chairs look comfortable, which is really important if your going to have long experimental dinners!
