Slight Changes

Small changes can alter a room's appearance dramatically.

Here's the dining room {Christmastime 2007...please excuse the ornaments and christmasy centerpiece}

And now here it is today:

  • Painted the table and chairs black; recovered the chairs
  • Moved the kitchen rug in here to anchor the furniture {Note: now need a kitchen rug!}
  • Added 3 more botanical prints and frames and tightened the bundle by hanging them closer to each other

I know I need a real table centerpiece {who wants to volunteer their flower arranging skills?} and I'd definitely like to change the walls up {with the corner table}. I've also been debating about whether to add a console piece underneath the wall with the prints.

But it's evolving...ever changing...hopefully for the better!

Love it! I would never have thought of painting the table and chairs black.

ohhhhhhh thanks y'all...if you were to see it up close, it'd be obvious my paint job is horrible BUT I still like it more than the way they were before {I think it's cheap pine even}.

I think the black makes it a tad more modern traditional...a little less dated.
