Normally when you see my dining room, this is how you see it.
A round table, with 4 chairs. That is because our dining room is small. But when we have more than two guests over for dinner, we need more table space.
Last night, we had friends over for dinner. So we added the leaf to the table.
I love having a larger table, because I get to use my linen country French runner. We do have to angle the able, otherwise no one would be able to sit on one side, because the bakers rack would be in the way.
We have more guests coming next Saturday, so we are leaving the leaf in the table for the week, and I get to enjoy the runner for a whole week :-).
