Breakfast Nook Makeover – Our New Round Dining Table
Our most used space in our home received a refresh recently and I’m so excited to share it with you! We ditched a formal dining room last year and now we use the breakfast nook for every meal. We replaced our smaller breakfast table with a larger round table that extends. While we hope to install built in bench seating one day, this has greatly helped our dining dilemmas and has opened up seating for a larger crowd.
Dining Table Review
Wayfair sent us the Ophelia & Co Eminence Extendable Dining Table and we love with it! I waited a few weeks to review this table, so our family of five could live with it and give you an honest review. How is it holding up to everyday use? The kids have spilled pasta sauce on it and that wiped clean. They have marked it with red crayons, yellow highlighter, and left play-doh smudges everywhere, all of which wiped away easily. I have used Mr. Clean Magic Erasers to wipe away tough spills and the finish on the table has remained the same, with no discoloration or fading observed.
My only complaint about the structure of the table is that it has little grooves where crumbs get stuck and need to be vacuumed out. Having a plank styled top, I expected this when selecting the table, so I’m not exactly surprised by the crumb collection. Otherwise, it is a well constructed and sound table that I highly recommend. Another positive about this table? The little black details in the paint will mask scratches with time. Personally, I’m in love with the large pedestal base and the price cannot be beaten! This table would easily cost over $1000 from competitors and it is currently on sale for much less with free shipping!
Extending the Table
We bought this table because it sits in a smaller space and we want the option to extend it when we have guests over for meals. It has a separate leaf that we are storing underneath our master bed. The process to insert the leaf is really easy. You simply unhook the bottom latches, slide the two sides out, insert the leaf, and push all of the pieces together. I easily inserted the leaf and extended the table by myself in less than ten minutes.
The Ophelia & Co. Eminence Extendable Dining Table has been a perfect addition to our breakfast nook. It is compact for everyday use with the option to extend and accommodate a larger crowd. I’m excited to continue using this table and share more reviews with you all over time.
