This is my kitchen:
I want to get a table to go by the window. A place were, in my imagination, we'd sit sipping coffee and reading the newspaper on a Sunday morning. This will never happen, I know, but the dream is still alive.
The Bjursta table from IKEA will work great. It's inexpensive and simple. But I have no clue what size to get. Initially, I thought I would get the small version. It's about 35", square. But then I realized that the window is 68" wide. So I started thinking that it would look silly with a tiny table in the middle of that wide window. So I thought about going one size up, to the 55"x35" table. Seems like a good fit.
But then I was talking to Rob this morning, and he thinks the smaller table would work better because then we could sit more in the sunlight. Plus he thinks the larger table will take up too much room in our small kitchen. I usually wouldn't take decorating advice from Rob, but now he has me second guessing myself. So, I ask for your help! Smaller table? Or larger table?
