Dining Room Finished!

 I finally have my dining room put back together!
It is so hard for me to get anything done for myself!
I've been very determined to have my house look like a home again!
This is my old sunroom where the large porch used to be,
but I wanted to make this a dining room and have a new look in here.
 I want a long dining room table, but I haven't found one yet.
This one will do for the time being!
  Brought some neutral colors and textures in along with the white.
 I used to have this cupboard in my bedroom,
but got tired of it in there,
removed the lace panels and replaced them with some old sacks.
I love the way this turned out!
It hold all my dishes and glassware.
 Couldn't get rid of the enamel EAT letters,
they are just to cool.
I tired to take several shoots of the room,
but it's long and narrow and I don't have a wide angel lens!
Maybe one day!
This little corner turned out perfect! 
  I would love to have my windows bare,
but the neighbors on that side of me are kinda messy.
 I set here often and drink tea or coffee.
Sweet little statue I got yesterday at the flea market for $3! Score!

Your dining room is absolutely fabulous!! What a joy for you to have such lovely surroundings, Theresa!! I have some white envy going on!! I am preparing to turn a spare room into my studio, and am so excited because it will be my first neutral space!! We still have earth tones around the house that we'll get to eventually. Gotta prioritize!!

Thanks for sharing your loveliness!
Always a delight!

It's perfect and I am coveting those two chairs like mad. <3

All your travels and no long table yet? hmmm? Don't you have a handy guy loitering around that could make you one? lol

Faded Charm said...

You truly have such an excellent eye for decor Theresa and I love how this room turned out. I'm always amazed at all your architectural items and how you use them.

I think I've asked your gray paint color before, but couldn't remember what you told me. If you have a minute could you please refresh my memory:-)

I hope you aren't working too hard and taking some time to enjoy Summer!
