There's been a lot of painting, cleaning, and moving furniture around in the formal dining room to give it a fresh look for spring.
The little white cabinet in the corner started all this! The project started out to be just a coat of white paint on the cabinet.....then it exploded into a complete makeover for the dining room.
The dining table has a pretty faux wood tablecloth on it to give the dining room a bit of a farmhouse look.
The table runner is a long enamel piece.......
My candle is named "Fields of Clover" and it makes the whole room smell like a big field of clover.
The centerpiece is a simple stack of greenery trays with a metal pail of flowers on the top and yellow chicks scattered around.
I didn't want a big floral design on the table, but I thought it would be fun to set one on the sofa at the end of the table. If there are several of us to eat, the sofa can scoot out for seating and the floral design can be set on the floor.
I have the buffet all set up for entertaining.
I have my favorite silver serving pieces ready to be filled with delicious food.
I have a few spring touches on the buffet,.......a sweet sheep
Last week my wood slice cake was on the table in the family dining room, but today it is on the buffet and the cows and metal barn have been replaced with spring sheep.
I have a small table behind the sofa to serve dessert on.
The dessert table got a coat of white paint at the same time the display cabinet did.
I still have lots of work left to do in the dining room. The dishes in the dark wood cabinet in the corner need to be arranged. Right now they're just stacked in there.
The fireplace mantel needs some pretty spring touches added to it.
You may recognize the tea cup/saucer display united from the entry. I had them hung long ways there, now they are stacked. I need to fill the rest of the compartments with something.....don't know what yet.....but something!
I love the new furniture arrangement, white paint, and spring touches!
Be back soon with an update on my progress in the dining room!
