My Big Plans For Decorating the Dining Room

Monday, April 18, 2016

My dining room, like basically all of my house, has been a work in progress for some time. Now that I finally finished painting the Duncan Phyfe table and reupholstering the chairs I really want to finish it all up.

All that's left (fingers crossed I don't get any other bright ideas) is to move this guy into the sun room. It's a workhorse of a piece, I bought it used and have had it forever. My plan is to paint it and use it to hold all my fabric stash and organize my sewing stuff.

I know what you're thinking, "Shelley, what are you going to do with all of your dishes?" 

Remember this guy I got on Craigslist a million years ago and have kept in my garage ever since?
I'm going to paint his mid-century modern keister and store my dishes inside. THEN I can finally make a most fabulous and beautiful plate wall above it. Have you been wanting a plate wall? I have. In fact I've been collecting plates for about a year in anticipation of hanging one.

 Although I adore an old world antique-y look, my favorite style mixes modern in too. I'm hoping the buffet will work with what I've already got going on and bring some freshness to the space.

Here is a not very good mock up of my plans.
Let's all cross our fingers that I'll have some progress to show you later this week and that you are able to move along on whatever your decorating hopes are.

  1. I love what you're planning to do and will watch for the next installment. I know the plate wall will be fabulous. And painting the big workhorse and adding it to the sunroom is, well, brilliant. So is every other idea, for that matter. Your "nest" just keeps getting better and better.

  2. That will be SO so good! I love the mix of vintage/traditional and modern. Colors will be great too! You are so talented.

    1. I hope so! I had different plans for staining the top of the buffet a dark walnut color but it didn't work out :-(


Now you say something!
