A bunch of tweaking going on here…
All because of a yard sale find!!
Last Friday, Mom and I went to an estate sale.
There really wasn't much, but we did happen to find two old tables.
Mine was a simple table with one small drawer.
At first, I didn't know what I was going to do with it.
After walking through the house thinking,
“Hummm, where can it go?”
I decided replace my mustard table with my new find.
I like the dark, old, finish of this table much better than the yellow.
As you can see, I moved my new penny rug over to this table.
I think it all looks so much better.
And cant beat the price…. $15.00
Well, you know how it goes…
Now I had to find a place for the yellow table. ;)
So, I decided to put it in place of the dough box and stand.
By this time I was in full speed tweaking mode!! LOL!!
I went to work on my dining room.
I decided to remove my one bench I had as seating at my table.
Instead I added the two ladder back chairs from the breakfast nook.
And since I didn't want to repaint them, I tried mixing them up some.
*The chairs are Not as Bright as they are appearing in the photos.
The room actually feels a lot larger without the bench seating.
I changed the positions of the window bench and the crock stand.
See, there is where I moved the other dough box to.
I did some tweaking to my crock stand (or bucket bench).
I wanted to change the display in my tall cupboard.
I have never been happy with it.
I've really been drawn to white stoneware lately.
I got these two pieces for my birthday last month.
I Love them!!
I have been wanting some stoneware molds forever!!
I was thrilled to find these at a
So any way…
My plan was to fill the dining room cupboard with white crocks and stoneware.
What was funny, at first I thought to myself,
“I don't have any white pieces though.”
So I walked around the house thinking what can I change out.
Then I would notice one piece of white.
“Oh, there’s a piece!”
And I would grab it and sit it on the dining room table.
Then I would notice another piece and another.
Isn’t it funny, how we don’t realize how much we have of something, until we actually stop and notice.
(Does that make sense? But I think you understand what I mean.)
I was able to gather enough together for my cupboard display.
I also did a little tweaking to my red ware display.
Here are a few more random photos from the dining room and some tweaking I did.
Lastly, Here are some random close-ups of my white stoneware displays.
Whew! I have really went nuts with the photos in this post, huh?!
I did some tweaking in my kitchen, breakfast nook and mud room too.
But those will have to wait until another post.
I would like to end this post with a question…
Brett and I would love some suggestions from my followers who travel.
You see, One year from November is our 25th wedding anniversary.
We are wanting to do something special.
We don't know much about traveling.
Well, other than our random junkin’ trips or our trips to Gatlinburg or Florida, we have never really gone anywhere.
We are wanting to go away and do something special.
*Sort of the Honeymoon we never had. :)
We are considering island hoping in Hawaii.
Or maybe an all inclusive resort in the Bahamas'.
Nothing is set in stone yet. And we love suggestions!
So, if you have ever went somewhere that you LOVED and would recommend…
We would Love know.
