We finally had a chance to break in the extension on our new kitchen table last night! It worked out really well. My mom came over to babysit so we could get started with some spring cleaning and run errands without also having to parent a toddler at the same time. Before we left her to do the bedtime routine for us we all had dinner. I was surprised at how well the table still fit in our kitchen. Steve sat in one of the new folding chairs for the first time. He said he was just sitting a bit lower than in our regular chair but that it was fine. Harold thought it was funny to sit in a different spot - he usually sits at the end of the table.
We ended up having quite the feast. We made steak, homemade macaroni and cheese, and asparagus and then we also had lentil soup that my mom made and brought over.
If you missed my Ikea Haul video over on my YouTube channel then I'll link it here so you can see the table and chairs that we bought a few weeks ago. The table comes in three sizes and we have the middle size. I think it is really good for small spaces and I love that the extension stores inside the table.
