Nice. The table I just bought actually came with the option to buy the matching bench along with chairs so we could use it when there is more of us at the table. It only goes on side of the table though. ( My older boys are usually not around )

Two tables. One has three, the other has four and a bench that seats three or four. And a high chair.

8 I want a different one though. This one is second hand, which I LOVE, but the chairs are pale green upholstered so they always look terrible. Even right after having them pro cleaned and that was way too $$ to do all the time. Anyone have any magic they use for furniture? I would like to get just plain wood chairs, then maybe some chair cushions to hake them more comfortable.

At this moment 9. After all the birthday partying is done I'll take the leaf out and go back to 7.

We had 8, now there is 5-6. We don't eat at the table often and most of us are rarely home so I really only need 4-5 at any given time.

We have two tables, one is glass top in the dining room, mostly for show and homework. The one in the kitchen has two benches and 4 bar stools. Could seat 10 easily.

The one that is set up right now seats 6 (which is fine since #3 is in her high chair and #4 isn't eatingsolids) but when we movie we have a tablet for 8. Although the 6 seater would work for us right now, it will be no for company or if we have more children.

Our table fits 4. We have a new table on our horizon. We've been eyeballing one of those country kitchen corner tables or a long table with bench seats. Not sure which one to go for yet. I can't wait to eat as a family again. We currently eat in shifts (kids first, then parents).

Ours seats 6, which is okay for now. We currently have 5 seats at the table, and the baby is in a high chair. Soon, that will have to change, although we can easily fit the normal 6 chairs and a high chair still. When we have company, we have 2 leaves that we can put in, and we pull in chairs from other places.

Ours has 6 chairs. When #5 comes, we'll have the high chair for a while and he/she starts eating solids. After that, we'll have to buy another chair. I don't know how many we can squeeze around this table. It has another leaf, so it can be bigger. However, our kitchen isn't big enough. :/

We never really eat together anyway, and the kids hate to eat at the table. We kinda just eat where we want...lol

We have 5 chairs and a bench +highchair. We also have 5 stools at the bar and 2 extras my table is round though and I so want a rectangle one with bench seats it would fit so much nicer, right now I have to weave around the seating in the dining room.
