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!

I love how you are always changing your breakfast/ dining area-- it is always different. That must be your favorite room!

I like the table-- I think a round table would be great in my kitchen, but my husband made my kitchen table so I can't part with it. (we have an eat in kitchen and no formal space for dining)

glad you're back-- I've been away since June!

Love it all. Love the table, the red drapes, the yellow walls and your tree.

The table is wonderful, Angie! It fits in your kitchen so well. I have missed seeing pictures of your kitchen and home. Love your new drapes - great idea using the ribbon between the two fabrics. Love how ready it looks for the holidays!

Sometimes you're not in the mood for blogging, I certanly understand as I go through it myself at times.

I love the curtains you made. How clever you are! The ribbon is a really nice touch. So glad you are posting again now that it is closer to Christmas!!!

Cathy Cobblestone said...

You did an awesome job on those curtains my friend. And I love the white table - I have one also but mine is black. Someday soon - it will also be painted another color. And I spy that hutch which is now white - the room looks "lifted" - ya know what I mean. Light and fresh! - Love it and glad you are back!

So glad you're back. I know what you mean though. Lately I've just not had any time to post much or even read my favorite blogs. I love blogging but it takes time! Love your white table! I love white painted furniture but hubby loves natural wood...so I usually go with what he wants:) Hope you have a lovely Thanksgiving.
