Life Is Short...So Are Adjustable Height Tables!

Life Is Short...So Are Adjustable Height Tables!

In my Spring Break post, I mentioned how my parents crammed their van full and drove from Ohio to Texas to stay in a condo on the beach in Port Aransas for the month of March.  Let me tell you, they packed practically everything but the kitchen sink.  Literally.  Clothes, tool boxes, fishing poles, a laptop, a printer, bicycles, a sewing machine... and even a Lifetime table!  Seriously!  My mom packed her 4' fold-in-half adjustable height table so she could use it as her sewing table.  (Thank goodness its compact for easy transportation because they needed every inch of cargo space they could get.) 

Mom set the table up right in front of the windows so she could enjoy the ocean view while she sewed.  She loves to make quilts as a hobby, but I also took advantage of her skills and had her take tucks in some of my skinny-mini son's shorts and a fix shirt for me.

Luckily, she didn't need to pack her Lifetime chairs.  She just borrowed chairs from the condo's social room which was completely filled with Lifetime tables and chairs!

The portability of Mom's Lifetime table also proved handy on St. Patrick's Day when several of the condo neighbors got together for a festive potluck.  Mom carried her Lifetime table up to the neighbors so they would have more eating space that night.  Here's a funny story though.  She took the table up earlier in the day and just left it with the neighbor without explaining anything about it.  When they went back up that night to eat, the neighbor said, "Thanks for bringing the table, but I think we'll just use it to set food on since it's much too low to eat on."  Really?  Well, turns out the neighbor didn't realize the table was adjustable in height so she when she unfolded the legs it automatically set up at the lowest kid height!  Ooops!  I guess the adjustable legs aren't always intuitive.  So, lessoned learned, if you loan out your adjustable height table, you might want to be sure and mention how to raise and lower the legs.  :)

Our New Kitchen Table
I'm guessing a lot of our readers will pull out their Lifetime folding tables and chairs to use as extra seating for holiday dinners and partiesthis month. Well, no need for me to pull out ours - we are already using them every day! That's right. We have a new kitchen table and chairs in our house. For the past few weeks - and for the next month or so - we are using our Lifetime 37-Inch Square Folding Table and Lifetime Contemporary Folding Chairs for our kitchen table and chairs. No, I'm not doing consumer research for Lifetime. We are getting ready to move in a few weeks and our old kitchen table and chairs were too big for our new kitchen eating space, so we sold them at our garage sale a few weeks ago. And, we dont want to buy a new one until we get to our new house and really decide what shape and style will work best. ...

Honestly, they do! Our new product line is designed to be both beautiful and functional - seamlessly integrating as actual bathroom dcor while providing the convenience of safety accessories.
