Just 3 little things to change up the dining area.
I just love the light!
My husband insisted on getting it, and I didn't argue.
It was a totally splurge.
(Found it on Pottery Barn)
We spent more than originally budgeted, but it was perfect.
We would rather spend more and be totally happy than spend less and be just satisfied.
The rug was a great deal from HomeGoods (always good deals!).
And the table is our good old IKEA table, with new paint.
It seats 12 with the leaves in.
Really can't see a reason to get rid of it yet.
I plan on making either new dropcloth slipcovers for the chairs or doing covered benches.
My Spaghetti jars got a swap out (and multiplied).
They now hold fresh flowers.
I just buy flower bunches from my grocer!
Saves money and they can still look lovely.
$10-15 on flowers every week or so is doable I think!
Working a to tie the family room to the kitchen/dining area.
(Hence the new slipcover debate for the dining chairs.)
I finally scored some PB slipcovers from Uglysofa.com
$50 each! Hooray!
Much cheaper than new sofas or full priced covers. AND:
Now my mismatched sofas match!
Super easy to clean too.
I do battle with keeping them straight and tucked.
But it is worth it!
Still working on the family room.
We have a major project of built ins coming soon!!!
Also, the master bedroom recently was painted and new bedding arrived, I will be sharing it all soon!!!!
