Hi everyone! I have one project totally done and ready to show off. Yep, the dining room is finished! I took a lot of photos (warning – lots of pictures in this post) so here’s the tour.
I decided on painting the white on the bottom because I originally had wanted to do beadboard wallpaper on the bottom in white. So I kind of had that image in my head and couldn't get rid of it :) I love how it turned out!
People always ask me if I made the curtains. The answer is yes and no! I took store bought toile panels and added the pom pom fringe and red gingham to the top. I’m by no stretch of imagination a “sewer”. But it was easy enough to do since it was just sewing in a straight line.
The tray with the lemons and black and white checkerboard was hanging in my kitchen. The other two are new.
This is always everyone’s favorite tray.
I still have my book page wreath up cause I love it!
This white three tiered stand is from Goodwill. I bought it a few years ago and it’s one of my favorite purchases since it’s so versatile.
For those of you who are new, this used to be a pine table and chairs.
I always wanted a white table but couldn’t afford a new one so one day I decided to paint it and I’m glad I did! Painted the chairs black and recently re-upholstered the seats in a yummy red toile.
One of the things I love about this room is that we can open the door into the screened porch and get all that wonderful fresh air in the house without the bugs! It was 74 today - amazing isn't it!!
Hope you enjoyed the tour! Next on my list is to finish the downstairs bathroom.
Happy Weekend, Friends!
