Hello, how are you today?
This week is going by so fast it is hard to keep up. I wanted to share pictures of my dining room with you, and tell you a little about it.
Because of resizing now, I wasn't able to get a full shot however, the display cases in each back corner...I use to place decorative plates, and other treasures I've collected over the years.
It gives me a chance to change them often. As you can see, the dining table is a drop leaf that can be pulled up when more room is needed, and there are two extra leafs to be added for even more room...it sits twelve.
Oh, did I tell you the table and chairs belonged to my Mom? They sat in her old house after she'd moved out over five years...they were in a mess when I moved back!
She was about to throw them in the dump when we were clearing out the house to move in... and I grabbed them up!
I couldn't believe she chose to leave the set, especially in the harsh weather here in the south. Thank goodness, the wood held up!
With a bit of TLC, I brought them back to where they are now, and I recovered the chair cushions. (I'll show them to you next time.) I love the claw feet on the table, and the harp motif in the chair backs.
Although, the pieces have the same dark color, they are not a match. Lite colored walls, trim and accessories in the room, softens the darker color of the wood.
Just with a bit of work, accessories, and decor' ideas, you can take old...mix it with a few thrift-shop things, and create a beautiful room!
Thanks for visiting, and I invite you to come again, sit a spell...At Home with Loretta...
