We have been busy busy trying to get some unfinished projects done. The dining room has been our main focus for now. We had popcorn ceilings plastered over, molding put up and finally now painted. We took down the crummy looking cabinets hanging on both sides of the china hutch. I said lets just hang plates and boy does that give it a cleaner finished look. We have an odd dining room in the center of our home because of an addition. It has six doorways and little wall space. It is nice and big so I love that for entertaining.
Of course the mister had to decorate the top of the cabinet while I was at the store. I approve.
Fresh paint just makes a room feel so much nicer. Nothing like it for a sprucing up.
We still have a mish mash of furniture and a table we would like to replace but for now it will stay. You can see I don't have much wall space.
My thrift store red chairs are still needed. We bought four new black Windsors last year but need to get four more. Not sure when that will happen. Always more want than money it seems.
On my dream list a large harvest table and open shelved hutch. Much less formal than the ones I was given by my mother when she redecorated. I am so much more relaxed and like simpler less fussy furniture but I was thankful to have them and have used them for many years.
It only took us over a year to get all the crown molding painted. Anyone else on the slow track of home improvement like us? We are paying for it today. Both of us saying ooh and ouch when we are walking around the house.
