My Dining Room

If you have followed my blog for any time or know me personally you know I L-O-V-E Black and White, especially black!! I make no secret that black is my favorite color. It is the stable of my wardrobe (I am not Gothic just classic) and same goes for my home. I feel every room needs a little black except for my kid rooms.

Welcome to my dining room....

The wall color of my choosing but the color when we moved in our home (3.5 yrs ago) Not a top priority (a long list of procrastinated projects before this one). The parson chairs I asked hubby get from a guy off Craigslist for $50 for 6. Then I recovered them all with black and white damask I bought off of ebay! I also made all of the window treatments.. I did all of this 8 months pregnant (I love pregnancy energy!!!)
My dining room is a hodge podge of furniture we have received from relatives or thrifty finds.
Here is my tour...
Picture above: 60" Round glass that is awaiting a pedestal! Underneath is a pecan round table from my other Great-Grandma (Ma-maw)

This hutch and china chest was my Great-Grandparents (BB & Dah), now painted black (I hope you like grandmommy!!)


This is the arrangement I did with Mod Podge and Thrift Store finds. The table was from my in-laws and a family friend made it for them.


China Chest from Great-Grandparents. Brewery bottles compliments of Hubby.


My new center piece for the summer!! LOVE IT!! I made it with items around the house (actually most are from my sister's wedding arrangements and shells from the Atlantic Beach, and my Mamma II's evening gown)

I love how you have that pop of pink in the back of your china chest. It almost completely drew my eye away from the home-brew paraphanalia. :) (Why are hubbys so funny that way?) Love the wainscotting too. Beautiful and classic.

The wall color is so classy with all the black and white! You did a great job marrying the old with the updated look!

Maridith, the round table is from BB and Dah, also. Your Mom and Dad haveMamma's dining room furniture. Also I think the table is maple. Sorry I missed your call Sunday. Lawson's birthday tea party was great. Love, Grandmommy

Oh I just love the fabric on your chairs, the black and white look is growing on me now that I see it done so wonderfully! It's nice to see some of your projects within the context of the finished room too. Really like the summer centerpiece too.
