Happy Thanksgiving week! Today is actually our nine year wedding anniversary. That seems like something worth celebrating. But we've got a 4 1/2 hour drive to my dad's house and a 20 lb. turkey to bring with us. Ha! I'm looking forward to a weekend of cooking and doing nothing.
Let's talk about design. I've been making more changes to our house and I'm excited to share them with you. Let's take a moment to go back to how the our dining room looked the day we moved in.
Here it is after the new lighting was installed. I added sconces and a new fixture over the table.
The walls were painted, lighting was installed, and I had my grandmother's hutch which is now my buffet. I knew I wanted to paint it but was afraid I would ruin it. BUT...after my latest paint job off of Craig's list, I knew I just wanted to get it done!
After new high gloss paint and hardware, I am seriously in love.
The hardware really makes the piece. They are updated but they still fit the vintage feel of the buffet. I hope my grandmother would be happy that we kept the buffet in the family and made it something we love.
Next up? I think I'm going to paint our dining room table. Gasp! It's from Pottery Barn, and after nine years it looks horrible. I'll keep you posted!
Have a beautiful Thanksgiving! I'm so incredibly thankful to all of you.
