**** Thanks for all the great links. I've been perusing them all day. I'm thinking that I want to lean towards a more Swedish style design and go with white, white, white for the dining room. Any helpful sites would be greatly appreciated!!!!****
I hope so, because I am now on the search for dining room set number 3!!!!!

Ok first off it took me forever to pick out a set that I liked. I finally found one in August and it took 4 months to come in. When it arrived part of it was broken, the chairs were all uneven and instead of looking white it looked like a shade of peach!!!! After many phone calls the set finally got returned and we got back all of our money.
So, then the search began again and I found something I liked at Pottery Barn and it was on sale, which was even better. We got it in two weeks and at first had no problems. I was finally able to unpack all of my china. We threw out every single china box and filled the server. The hunt then turned into a search for the perfect lighting fixture and wallpaper for the room. Then 2 weeks ago we notice that there is a crack on the server door. Call up Pottery Barn. No problem they send over a furniture doctor. He comes in and says the damage is too bad and he'll just put in an order for a new door. We call PB this weekend to check-up on the situation. They no longer make the set, there is none in the warehouse or stores and they don't want to return it. Now not only is one door cracked, but we take a closer look and the second door is starting to crack as well!!! So Saturday was spent on the phone with PB on hold while they tried to get a manager to approve a return and credit for the entire set. It was finally accomplished and they are sending someone in two weeks to pick it up.
Which now leaves me again with no furniture and loose pieces of China all over the place!!! Jon wants to turn the room into a roller ring. Geez thanks hun for the great ideas....
I have no clue where I'm going to find a set that I like. I'm looking for something white or lime-washed wood would be nice. Maybe have the table be exposed wood and then white chairs? I'm just not sure anymore. I'm on the search for something with a cottage feel, but not too shabby chic.
Any helpful ideas for where I should look?
