A Little Decor

Hi there ...

I've not much to post right now ... Just been working on upcoming DT projects and busy with life
However, I thought you may like to see how my dining area is shaping up


So ... it's been redecorated and a faux panel wall constructed ... I haven't been able to find a photo of the before but trust me it's totally different


This is an old pine unit I've had for years and I'm loathe to part with it so I used a chalk paint to give it a new lease of life and using wax paper I added the french graphic ... a freebie from The Graphics Fairy


New handles that sparkle and catch the light and new lamps too ... You can see the runner under the glass top which I made from (matching to the paper) fabric which I also used to cover the seats of the new Ikea chairs


The table is also from Ikea - a lucky find in the bargain section and just the right size - I painted the top too and then we had glass made to fit


I painted the old mirror and I added my trade mark splatters in pewter Lol!
The 3 bottles wrapped in burlap I found at The Range and today they have fresh daffodils in
There is some more work to complete ... namely I managed to get a shuttered mirror yesterday which I intend to paint and put at the other end of the room together with a little shelf ... 

It seems to have been a long process not least of all because the guy who was to finish off the new beading around the floor never returned - we waited 3 weeks and ended up having to finish it ourselves plus DH had to do a little more papering 

We're pleased with the result though and next stop is the new insulated roof to be done on the conservatory which means that too will be decorated soon.

I hope you enjoyed seeing what I've been up to

Till soon take care
