This is what the dining room looks like now. Lighter and brighter. The stuff on the table are things I have been gathering for Thanksgiving.
The pumpkins that I had filled the dough bowl with have rotted and been tossed out.
I found some new plates at Home Goods and the plaid napkins are also from Home Goods and the gold acorn ones are from Williams Sonoma outlet. I need to go get more. Still deciding what to do for a centerpiece in here.
The bench will be moved and two chairs brought back in. Chairs are more comfortable for guests. The bench is just for looks since this room is not really used except for holidays.
This is the buffet I painted several months ago. The top actually opens up to serve from.
Still loving my new gallery wall in here made with prints found on ebay and cheap frames from Hobby Lobby.
The hutch went from factory finish cherry to this worn gray finish with blue inside the hutch. You can read about the hutch transformation here.
Looking in from the kitchen.
Toile drapes bought premade years ago at a local store.
Antique English armoire that will not be painted.
My favorite change of all is the new chandy.
Is your dining room ready for Thanksgiving and are you expecting guests?
