Christmas in the Dining Room

Here are some pictures of my Christmasy dining room. I figured I had better get busy posting 'cause the big day is almost here. I swear December goes by faster than any other month. I have been having a ball seeing all the gorgeous Christmas decor out there in blogland. Hope y'all are having a great week and keeping warm. I'll be back with more, hopefully on Thurs.!

Kitchen Table Tree

I bought this metal tree at a yard sale this past summer. It was silver and rusted so I spray painted it lime green. I was going to make some initial ornaments for it, but found these adorable ones at Hobby Lobby for only 50 cents each (they were half off) and bought some to represent the first letter of each family member's name (me, my husband, our son, and our 2 dogs). They are so perfect since they are red and lime green with polka dots. Hope y'all had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday and are having a great day today. No shopping for me today...staying at home and doing more decorating and some much needed cleaning!

I'm Back!

I can't believe my last post was on Oct. 7th! No reason, just get busy with life and don't feel like posting, ya know? I wanted to show y'all my new love - my white pedestal kitchen table. I love it! I have been wanting one for a long time and found it in a shop for $59 which I thought was pretty cheap. It is an old one that has been painted. I am planning on sanding it some to distress it more. I am using the same chairs I have had for several years. I made some new curtains out of a red paisley and a red and white checked fabric from Joanns with some polka dot ribbon as the seam between the 2 fabrics. You know me - gotta have my red! Another change I have made in here is the white hutch. I'll talk about it another day and show you more pics of it. Enjoy the rest of your day!

New Runner and Urn in Dining Room

There were tons of yard sales this past Sat. and I got some great deals. Two things I bought were this Waverly toile runner for $1 and this urn for $1. I think the urn looks Majolica-ish and I really like its shape and colors. I'll be showing y'all the rest of my loot in the days ahead. Enjoy the rest of your Thursday!

$7 Yard Sale Dresser

I got this cute little antique dresser for $7 at a yard sale a few weeks ago. I put in in my bedroom at first and then decided to bring it in the kitchen so I could see and enjoy it more. The bottom part of the hutch that was in this spot is in my laundry room and the top is in the attic. I'm sure you'll be seeing it again some time in the future. My mom said she may want to use it for awhile. The dresser already had this aged green finish so I am leaving it like it is for now. I try to avoid painting if I can 'cause it is a pain! The mirror was gone so I bought this fall fabric today at HL and just hot glued the edges onto a piece of cardboard and stapled it to the back of the frame. I am planning to change out the fabric for Christmas and whenever I want. A very cheap and easy project which is what I love! I am trying to come up with some kind of arrangement over it and on the sides. Not sure if the bunny tray is staying or not. It may go somewhere else. Hope y'all are getting some fabulous fall weather like we are here. Have a great night and a terrific Tuesday!
