CSN Stores


Just in time for my kitchen table dilemma, CSN Stores has offered another giveaway for me to offer my readers. Since I first learned of CSN Stores, I have bought a hammock stand and a dog kennel from them. I've been very pleased with both transactions. I even had a chance to try out their customer service when the hammock stand we ordered was sent with some incorrect parts. With one quick phone call to them, the correct parts arrived in days. In case you're not familiar with CSN Stores, they have over 200 stores with pretty much everything, including bar furniture, which is where I found this lovely table. I had to start a wish list because we've found a grill, playroom furniture, fire pits, and light fixtures that we like.

The table above is really lovely, but I'm convinced I don't want another counter height table for my space. If you read my previous post, you know my struggle with choosing a new kitchen table. I think my first choice may be too big, but the other two choices is just a decision between black and white. Sounds simple enough, right? However, I don't trust myself with these decisions even after I take forever to make them, so this time I'm enlisting your help.

First choice, a foot longer and wider than my current table and with upholstered chairs (keep in mind I have 2 small children), but by far my favorite design.

Second choice, keeps the white/wood style, but is 8 inches shorter than my first choice. It also has wood seats that will be easier to wipe clean and rounded corners (good for both space saving and small children).

Third choice, same as the second, but in black. May match our brown cabinets and black appliances better (though our walls and floor are lighter colors and all trim is white) and may hide dirt better since it's darker. Though it's not my favorite, I'm thinking it may be the best choice.

CSN Stores has generously offered my readers a chance for a $45 promotional code. There really is so much to choose from it's hard to do thorough 'window shopping', but I love the feature on their homepage that allows you to see what people have bought recently. You can also click on the sales and promotions or clearance center to do some great bargain shopping.

How To Enter:
(The first step is required for your first entry. Any steps after that reward you with an extra entry.) This one's a little different in that I'll ask that you follow my blog to enter as I'd really like to reward my readers with this giveaway.
This giveaway, and subsequent shipping, is only offered within the continental United States.

1. Help me decide which table I should purchase (the first one that I like the most (but I fear is too big), or the white or black smaller set). The choices and more details can be found here
OR
tell me what you've purchased from CSN Stores and how you like it
OR
what you would like to purchase from CSN Stores

This giveaway will remain open until November 5, 2010 at midnight central time. The winner will be chosen using Random.org.

  36. I'm a follower and I think I'd go with choice #2...somehow that set really looks better in white than in black, and I think you'd be smart not to have upholstered seats if you have little kids [learned that one the hard way].

  43. Follower via GFC. I once had a white kitchen table set, but found that it was really hard to keep clean (my kids were small then), especially the legs. This might be because I really didn't like getting down on the floor to make certain they were washed correctly! So you might be better off with the darker set.

  46. I would go with the third choice. I've found that darker furniture goes with almost any kind of decor and doesn't wash it out like light furniture. Good luck with whatever you decide on. It's a hard choice. Thanks.

  72. Well, I like the style of the 1st choice the best. You can buy clear chair pad covers to protect upholstery, but I don't know how secure they are. I do like the black and brown color set. Dark colors may get scratch damage easier, but you can use those furniture pens or magic marker or repaint them. The other 2, you can buy chair pads, which are easily replaced. Hope this helps.

  81. I follow publicly on GFC. Okay - it seems you love choice 1 but think it may not be practical - that will be a problem later when you are constantly trying to keep it clean. You think choice 3 is practical but don't love it. Nevr get something you don't really like - you'll never be happy with it.
    So go with choice 2 - it's the best of both worlds. You really like it and it's practical
