The old dinette is posted on several, local Facebook tagsale sites, along with some other furniture we no longer want/need. I have generated a list of items to go through, in a divide/conqquer approach. I am home recouperating for 2 more weeks before returning to work, and naturally find myself very tired. Pictured above are the table linens that I am purging as of this afternoon, hoping to make a few dollars off of, towards the aforementioned expenses. I have keep the oval cloths for use on the expanded dinette table but more likely, the oval dining room table. Rectangular cloths are going, along with the bulk of mats I simply don't use, and napkins I don't care for and/or need. We still are keeping plenty: mats-one set of 6 ivory, 1 set of 8 beige, 1 set of 8 green. I also am keeping many sets of different colored, cotton napkins, most being Vera Neumann vintage ones as well as simple, solid colored ones. Mixing/matching over the seasons, I feel this is plenty to change up our tablescapes. The kitchen and DR are both green-hence my color choices.
I will soon be posting a request for used (often easy to get them free)moving boxes, will hit up the package stores and ask DS #1 to get me some from the grocery where he works.
