Dining Room Progress
Tuesday, June 7, 2016
I've been chipping away at the dining room every free minute I can find and I'm really happy with how things are coming together. I pass through this room each time I go from the living room to the kitchen and I'm really beginning to like what I see. Before it was a disheveled mess with pictures waiting to be hung, boxes ready for goodwill, and a vacuum sealed mattress that we accidentally opened, oops!
The dining chairs were recovered with a neutral linen/cotton and the fabric is exactly what I was looking for! You never know when you order fabric on line and don't first order swatches, but this time was a success. Same goes for the rug. I love it and wish I had pulled the trigger sooner. It's soft and has not shed one bit. The soft cream/grey and the washed navy blue are perfect for the look I was going for. Pattern and color without being too much.
You made have heard me all the way from North Carolina when I found these palm tree candlesticks and blue and white bowl in a vintage store!
The bar cart is another addition to the dining room. I found one at World Market. It had a silver finish which wasn't quite what I was hoping for so a little rub 'n buff fixed that problem. It's so nice having bar essentials in one spot instead of tucked away in various cabinets.
Here's a closer shot of the table, chairs, and rug. Love!
And of course my trusty sidekick is right by my side.
Still to do: box moulding, paint walls, paint china cabinet, sitting area
