The part where I finally decide to lighten up.

I asked your opinion a short while back about re-painting my buffet-bookshelf piece, and I have made a decision at last. Not only am I going to paint the big black piece, I spent a portion of my Sunday beginning to re-invent my dining room as well. 

I'm not entirely sure I am even going to keep the round pedestal table, as I have a rectangular table upstairs in my work room that I am considering moving down. I'll know better once the round table is complete and I have both tables in the same room to play with...hopefully by Wednesday of this week. (I know. I am eternally optimistic about time management and the hours I have in each day....)


  1. I'm really glad! Just what I hoped for. Can't wait to see the pics!

  2. Yay! So exciting! Can't wait to see it when it's done. I know it'll look great!

  3. It was fun to see you the other night! I hope the little lamp worked out well in your bathroom! I think you're really going to love your brighter, lighter dining area! I can't wait to see the transformation photos!
    Best Wishes and Blessings,

  4. Hi Tracey: I am usually in agreement with all your deorating ideas but, are you SURE about painting the big china cabinet? Your walls are already light and now a big piece of white/cream against it? The dark is what's grounding that whole back area and drawing the eye in. Maybe just using less on the shelves and/or using lighter colors of goodies on the shelves would do the trick. Of course, once I see it done I "might" think differently . . . thanks for letting me have my say.
