CSN Stores, Extra Seating, and a Giveaway

*Contest Over - Winner is traciet*

Now that the Holidays are here and we have more family gatherings, I find that we need a few more places for people to sit. The floor is always good and that is where I tend to sit when there are no chairs left but not everyone can sit on the floor. Another option might be to use home bar furniture like bar stools. CSN has a great selection of bar stools and pub tables from modern to traditional to outdoor styles.

I really like the shape of this bar stool. It's fun.


I have a few friends that have pub style tables and I really like them. I like their height. This would be the table and chair set I'd choose. I think my style leans more towards simple clean lines with a bit of traditional in the mix. Actually, this set looks similar to our Amish made table and chair set we have now.



You can find so much more at CSN's 200+ stores than you'd have imagined. I'm really loving this sandbox and think that we need to upgrade our plastic ladybug sandbox to this much larger and nicer box.



Buttercup and Pony would adore this vanity and the standing mirror would go great in their room near their dress-up center.




And I think that every kid should have an easel for maximum art production.




If you remember, I reviewed a toddler bed last year and found CSN a great company to work with. They have quality products and great service.

This is going to sound nuts, but I would love to give these to my husband (for the dog) Ruff Wear Bark'n Boots™ Skyliner™ Dog Boots - Set of 4 - 1510 - because every single time we let the dog out, he needs his paws wiped when he comes in and it's a real pain! These would save my hubby's back and an annoying chore as well.

We are terrible hosts. We don't really have extra seating. Worst comes to worst, my husband and I sit on the floor and leave the chairs to the guests!
