Dear Ikea Bjursta Table, After all these years, it’s time to say good-bye. We had good times moving from apartment to apartment. Remember that time we squeezed you into that tiny one-bedroom condo and could sorta fit four people at once for dinner?  Or how nothing would stain or mark your unnaturally resilient finish?  All wonderful memories, but it’s time to move on.  We’ve grown apart.  It’s not you…it’s me. I am sure you will find that special “one” out there on Craigslist.


Dear Future Dining Table, I’m a DLG seeking a GUDT (Decor Loving Gal seeking a Grown-Up Dining Table) to be there for the long run.  Must be able to accommodate small and large dinner parties, hold piles of mail for weeks at a time, and get along with the existing home decor.  A modern or mid-century modern aesthetic with rustic/organic features is a plus.  Veneer tabletops need not apply.

  1. I know exactly what you mean – when I bought my grown up dining table I hemmed and hawed for months! But I am so glad I finally took the plunge and bought it – it makes eating an experience. Good luck searching! xo

    1. I am forever stuck in trying to make a decision. Part of me wants to sell the table I have now first just to get me motivated to get a new one! I’ll have to keep you guys posted on where I end up on this front in a couple of months! xo right back at ya 🙂
