I wanted to give the family dining room a fresh look for fall, not anything big.... just some small changes. I started by rotating the table about five feet to the left, making it off center from the window.
Then, I swapped some rugs around. I replaced the blue rug under the table with a pink one from the family living area.
I added a piano seat to one end of the table.
I just have the grey and cream buffalo check fabric "tucked in" under the lid since I'm not sure if I am going to use that or a different fabric to recover the piano seat.
I layered the napkins with a pink a white and a striped napkin that I bundled together with a antler and rose napkin ring. I tied everything together with a black and white checked ribbon.
Since I already had a big floral design on the buffet that sits next to the table, I just created a very simple candle arrangement in a metal tray as the centerpiece for my tablescape..
I asked H to bring in the library ladder that has been stored out in the studio. I think it will fit in perfectly with the farmhouse/ romantic prairie look that I am going for in the family dining/ living room.
I think I will display some of my table linens on it or maybe some quilts. For now, I just filled my ladder up with some random items until I can make up my mind what I want to do!
The owl is a recent yard sale purchase that I haven't taken out to the fall room yet, and the hat box was bought Saturday at a yard sale. I don't know where it's going yet, so I just set it here for now.
Who knows where you'll see them next week!
