I finally have the last of the packing boxes out of the kitchen and
the dinette. Now comes the playing around of furniture and
accessories. Should the scale go here or here? Y'all know what
I am talking about. The way something was arranged in one
home may not work in the next. Perhaps you just want a
different look this time. It's all about playing house.
Do I hang that "old bears" sign that I have had in our kitchen since we
were first married or is it time to say bye to bears? Well it may all
depend on just how sentimental I am feeling.
I have lots of old copper pieces that have not found a home yet,
but have been freshly polished by my meticulous Mom.
The dinette area is where we will have all of our everyday meals.
I want the look to be cozy and intimate. Nothing too stiff. The room
currently has dark paneling below the chair rail and I do want to
paint that white to brighten up the room.
You can see what I am talking about. The paneling is too
dark for the look I want, so it will get painted as soon as I
have the time. Don't know where I will put that French market
basket yet, but I will figure it out.
At the moment I am just happy to be able to walk around
without having to maneuver around packing boxes! Now I
can have fun creating tablescapes in the dinette. Ah the
simple pleasures of life.
Happily Joining ~
Bentley is going to take you on another neighborhood
tour tomorrow. Don't miss it!
