I mentioned that I did a lot of work preparing for the dyeing party we had here on Saturday, but I never went in to what I did. Today, I want to share some of the photos of the simple changes I made that I think really make a difference in the cohesiveness of the place. I have been hit with the Pinterest bug and I love to see all the beautiful pictures that give me so much inspiration. I wanted to try my hand at creating some pretty displays and get some of my lovely pieces out of storage.
First of all I must say that these photos were taken after the party, so this is not exactly what everything looked like for the party, especially the back porch area.
Inside, the dining room had the most changes but they were all just in the accessories. This is my mother's china. I added in glassware and silver to the mix.
My favorite piece of furniture that I own is this dresser that has served many different storage functions in its life. My mother bought and refinished it many years ago and I always told her that I wanted that piece willed to me. I just love it.
This is the floating shelf arrangement on the right side of the buffet.
I do plan on removing that wallpaper border some day. I have another border that I would like to put up that has softer colors. There is a piece of it over my kitchen window. I am in love with it.
I have one more photo to share in the dining room. The chandelier.
Come back tomorrow to see how the back patio looks. Here I am sitting in my rather messy office writing this post and I should have taken my computer out to the patio and enjoyed the fresh air. I will do that tomorrow and as you read that post and enjoy the photos you can imagine me sitting there on that lovely patio. I have certainly been blessed. Thanks for sharing a little of my space I hope you have enjoyed. Please leave me any comments on what your favorites are or what you might like to try doing yourself.
Have a wonderful day and be thankful, as I am, for your many blessings.
