My mom called me yesterday wanting to know what our new dining set looked like, so I thought a picture would do better. So far we are loving it. It is nice to have a stable table (like my rhyme?) and lots of space to spread out. We get three chairs apiece!
I also wanted to show my office area, which is still a work in progress. The space seemed small when we moved in. Even in the model home, they didn’t make the space very appealing (there was green laid down so you could practice golf putting). I eventually want to add two French doors to separate the space, a faux fireplace on one side, a small chair and stool (which I already have, I just need to recover them), and then book shelves on the other side. But for right now I love being surrounded my some of my favorite estate sale finds (the silk sari that is used as a curtain-$5, the mirrored wastebasket-$1, a pretty paperweight-$6, and the old store ticket rack that holds my favorite inspiration cards and papers-around $15). Also, a lot of the objects are special because I made them, like the pottery pieces and the painted plate. Others are pictures that I picked out at an art festival in 7th grade. I like having a space that is all mine and not cluttered. Also, taking pictures helps me figure out what doesn’t exactly work in the room, like the watercolor that is hung too high and the desk that is a little too far to the right!
