I am so happy to have you all here to see the featured room in my house this week, my Dining Room! This is one of my favorite rooms in my house. So welcome and enjoy...
This room had green wallpaper with an apple border and some ugly cream and green colored laminate when we bought it. Oh and it had a super ugly chandelier. This is what it looks like now!
Didn't my hubby do a super good job on the floors and hanging my pretty chandelier? I think so! I bought this table and the white chairs (they were brown when I bought them though) at a junk store about 6 years ago. I sanded the table down and re-stained it this dark stain. And another view...
I saw the idea for the greenery wrapped around the chandelier in a magazine. I just noticed that I need to get the silver stickers off the lights (how embarrassing).
I got this mirror in a near by town at my very favorite antique store the White Rabbit. Isn't it gorgeous? I just love it and it is the greatest centerpiece to these beauties...
The plate pattern on the top is a Currier and Ives print. My mother has a collection of the green pattern, and my grandmother had the blue (which my mother now has also), so I decided to start collecting the red. I have more of them in a china cabinet in my kitchen (which I will show you later, you'll just have to stay tuned to see it).
I spray painted and sanded these chairs until they were just the right about of shabby. I also reupholstered them in this cute white and red checked fabric. I enjoy the touch of red in the room.
This little chair I bought at Pier One. I don't like for things to be too matchie-matchie. So this little chair was the perfect piece to make my little chair family complete!
I bought this cute little curtain rod at my local Wally World (wal-mart).
I bought these paint by numbers beauties at the White Rabbit also. I just love the color they add to the space.
Well there it is...I would love to hear what you think, so please feel free to leave a comment so I can come and visit you all too!
Oh and come back later tomorrow for the unveiling of my new haircut...you can see the styles I was thinking about here.
Everyone have a great day (or night)!!!
