Are you in the market for new furniture?
We live in a small condo. Even for a small condo, we have a lot of furniture – beds, bookcases, pantries, dressers, television stands, dining room table, coffee table, chairs…
None of our furniture really matches. Some was given to us by family members, others we purchased ourselves.
We learned a lot time ago that furniture that you buy “cheap” is made cheap. Almost all of our bookcases and television stands were the cheap kind. We ended up having to replace them in a matter of a couple of years – or less. o When you think about it they are not that cheap after all because you have to spend money every few years to replace them.
Our dining room set was given to us by my mother in law. It was a small set but it was too big for the apartment she was moving into.
It was a nice set and lasted for many, many years. We got a lot of life out of it and that set was involved in a lot of family memories like birthdays and Thanksgiving dinners.
Sadly, the years were not good to our dining room set. The varnish wore off, it got a burn stain on it (one of my kids put a hot pot on it and it burned a ring on it). Most of the chair legs were scratched up from one of our cats who opted to use the legs as a scratch pad instead of the actual scratch pad.
The table was also too small for us. It was round and only had four chairs. It made it hard to have guests over for dinner. The adults had to eat at a different time than the kids. Once we even had to have a guest sit on the desk chair (the kind on wheels) because we didn’t have enough chairs.
Since a dining room table is something that we use every single day – multiple times a day – it’s something that we can skimp on. It has to be well made and something that could last for decades.

I knew we needed to get our dining room set from Oak Furniture Land. The hard part was picking out which set we wanted. They have so many to choose from in various shapes, sizes and styles.
Here are just a few examples of their dining room sets.
See what I mean? It was difficult to narrow down a set. There are so many beautiful sets to choose from.
After much debating with my family we finally chose our new dining room set – Baku Light Natural Solid Mango Dining Set. It’s a 5′ 6″ table with six wooden chairs.
The table is surprisingly easy to move around. It’s solid, but not extremely heavy. We put those felt pads on the bottom of the table and chair legs to help prevent scratches on the floor, and to make everything easy to move when I need to vacuum or mop.
We chose this set because it has a country look to it but it could be dressed up with cushions for the seats.
A friend of mine also said that this set it good for scratches. Just in case it was accidentally scratched it wouldn’t show up that much because the nature look of the wood.
I cannot tell you how excited I was for this set to arrive.
The delivery company kept us updated on the delivery and allowed US to pick the day/time frame that worked best for us. Not many companies do that. Often they tell you what day/time they are coming.
I was pleasantly surprised that the table was delivered right away.
I am IN LOVE with the table. Totally in love. It’s a beautiful table.
This is a solid table. You can tell just by looking at it. It’s exceptionally well made. We even tried to push it to see if it wiggled, but it didn’t. The same thing applies to the chairs. We tried all six chairs and all of them are solid (no wiggling!).
It took a bit to get used to it. We were so used to a small round table with four chairs. This table is a rectangle, a foot bigger and has six chairs (not four).
I love that I am able to put things on this table and make tablescapes. With our old set there was hardly room for us, let alone a centerpiece.
I’ve been playing around with centerpieces and placemats. Currently I have four candles in the center of the table and two mason jars with sand and seashells and candles in them.
Even our cat, Bella, likes the table (she had to test it out the first day we got it – she has not gone it since because she knows better).
You can see from the photos how beautiful this set is. They put a lot of detail into it from the grooved design and even round “nubs” (for lack of a better description) on the corners.
My apologies for the different colors of the wood. The time of day, sunlight, ceiling fan light and other factors changed the way it too.
Love! Love! Love!!!
