For months, literally, I’ve treated our dining area as nothing more than a hallway.
On one side, a glass topped table… On the other, a brown paper bag console table.
No art. In fact, the only ornamentation was the fruit bowl I put together. The console has exactly three candles and a mirror.
I’ve managed to get the rest of the room almost in shape. I even managed to get new curtains from the local Salvation Army (for $9.99!). The room does need artwork and some tweaking, but that will come in time.
Back to the dining area….
The glass-topped table and modern chairs just aren’t working in sync with the rest of the room. They’re just too modern and cold, while the rest of the room is comfy and traditional(ish). It left me uninspired… to say the least.
I had a breakthrough today! My local Salvation Army had a solid wood, round, pedestal table! One that needs work – but you can’t expect perfection for $24.99! Right now, it’s in two pieces in my living room, waiting for me to decide what to do with it!
And there is the dilema.
I’m thinking a white base, dark stained top and a compass rose overlay.
The Ogre? Well, he’s not on board with the white base, although he is very approving of the compass rose. I suggested black…. he doesn’t think that will work, either.
This decision could be a while in making.
I’ll keep you posted as to who wins!
I’d really love to see your comments on the projects I do and the ideas I have. I learn more from critiques than praise, but, honestly, I adore praise (and who doesn’t?).
Thanks for stopping by.
