As previously mentioned, I don't want to give away too much in the way of how my dining room makeover is going. I will instead provide proof that progress is being made, in spite of work and busyness getting in the way. Lately that progress seems to be collecting things and not my DIY recessed paneling, but progress is progress.
Here are some teasers:
100% cotton table cloth made in India (where else?!), cut in 2 to be used for drapes
single place mat purchased at icky Walmart for $1.00 on clearance. i may use it in the center of the table for candles or something
i now have a gallery wall of original art! this is a little watercolour i picked up in Old Quebec City's outdoor gallery that runs from Rue Ste-Anne to Rue Buade
a new piece of furniture that i painted, preserving it's original worn look.
bottles of wine in reserve for sharing with friends
What's interesting is that the room has taken on a colour scheme that I did not pre-plan, let alone strive for. More about that in a future post!
