Shhhh….I may have skipped last week’s One Room Challenge post, but that’s for two reasons: I had a shoot that day and nothing to update you with. So I kind of look at that as doing us all a favour.
But today? Today, the dining room is actually looking pretty damn fantastic.
I made a little trip across the border last weekend and picked up the bar cart, mirror, light fixture and popped in to Target. Gawd I love that place. Truly, madly, deeply love the hell out of it. And! After a bit of a mishap, the dresser arrived in all it’s prettiness yesterday. Combined with the drapes made by my super talented friend, Hollie, it’s all actually coming together.
My still-left-to-do list includes
- hanging the light
- hanging the mirror
- finding dinnerware to mix in with the goodness I already found
- sourcing decor for the dresser
- buying more booze for the bar cart
- painting the chairs
- maybe painting the walls
- something else I am sure I forgot
Let’s talk walls for a moment. If you knew me at all, you’d know that colour makes me happy. I am the only one dressed in full-on colour when everyone else is all-black. My walls in my old house were the same. Colour everywhere. Colour makes me happy. I fully expected to paint each room in our new home, but the white walls won my heart. They make the home feel so bright and fresh. I picked out a gorgeous colour for the dining room walls but I just can’t seem to do it. I guess we’ll all have to wait and see whether the white stays or goes.
