Hey Hey! Hope you had a fantastic weekend! I dog sat a friends sweet little puppy and spent some time at the Mall with my 12 year old daughter. It’s all decorated for Christmas, which is my favorite time to be at the mall. I’ve been trying to keep plugging along on our dining room. I tend to get the base of a room done and then pulling the last 20% of decorating done gets pushed to the back burner. What can I say, I have a short decorating attention span 😉
I started with this galvanized metal shelf. My son used to have it in his room but he didn’t need it anymore so I decided to see where I could re-purpose it.
I’m 100% certain things will get moved around and added to this shelf as I find out how it can best serve us. Isn’t that what decorating a house is all about? Pretty + Functional? I love it!
The rest of the dining room has a few updates to. I’m still working on the dining table makeover, so only the bottom is painted right now. I’ll have updates on that hopefully in the next couple of weeks. We did add those gorgeous tufted chairs I mentioned. I also added some white paint to a stool we had and a little gold leaf.
I love this lamp I found a Target over a year ago. I never could find a lamp shade that looked great on it. So, I used gold leaf to paint the top and added an Edison bulb. I love how it looks now even without a shade!
I’ve got a few more things to complete in this room:
— Large frames/artwork on the long wall
— Find a rug that can stand living under my table with a husband, 3 kids and two cats
— Refinish the Tabletop
