We have no dining room furniture… I often eat at my husband’s work desk or on the bed… t tsk tsk.
When you’re getting married there are 101 things you need and I decided not to let that list overwhelm me so a dining table moved a few steps down the rung.
Here is the thing though, I love cooking, I love hosting and I had imagined that I would be the queen bee of brunches and dinner parties by now. LOL. I think it’s time to move dining furniture a few steps up the list and I expressed this to Oyekola. We started looking at some pictures and I showed him my vision.
Him : Oh baby they’re really nice I like them..
Him: Will people “get” it? I mean I can imagine <redacted> asking “why are you using cheap-looking unfinished wood?”
But I totally get where he’s coming from, a lot of Nigerian people like victorian-esque over the top furniture, and even in the case of modern style, the style is usually cold and bachelor pad-esque, neither of which I’m going for.
So I soon as I find someone who can bring the vision alive or where I can buy/ DIY it I think we’ll go for it.
More of my home style here I should warn you, it’s a bit of everything.
