It is finished!
The dining room that is.
(and this may win the title of Picture Heavy Post 2012!)
I’m happy with it.
I took all the colors out of the house and Christmas decor this winter and stuck with silver, gold, white and green.
I guess those are “colors’, but I’m enjoying the color calmness this year!
I thought I would “whip together” this chair slips/covers….what are these called anyways, does anyone know?
Whatever they are called, they took longer than expected (doesn’t everything?).
You can read about my Junk Centerpiece that I found while running,
and I’ll have tutorials for the name holders and the chair “slips” soon.
My only purchases were these sliver plate chargers, and the bird/pinecone greenery on the chair slips.
I purchased these stars from the dollar store too.
The entire room is a little fancier than I normally would do, but it all just came together this way.
Do you think of an idea before you start decorating and create/purchases all the pieces necessary?
Or do you just throw the things you have together and see how it works out?
I have to say, I do more of the latter.
Although I always seem to pick up a few Dollar Store additions despite what I start with.
Funny how that is.
Do you like where the watermark is? I had to put it there, because I didn’t realize there was a pile of kids coats there when I took the picture….and I’m only so good at Photoshop, so my “faux baseboard” just wasn’t coming together, hence the name covering it.
….just keepin it real.
I contemplated doing one post for the table and one for the dining room,
but there’s not much more to the dining room than the table, so here it is….all in one lump sum.
I hope your week has been wonderful and you’ve been enjoying something festive.
Happy end of the week!
