Anyway, also on my list for the month is to choose paint colors for the house. Since we think we finally have our dining room the way we want it, I figure that's a good place to start.
Last Friday afternoon Geoff and I found ourselves enjoying a little "antiquing". I never really knew I liked to antique (can that be a verb?) until Geoff and I started popping into a few shops here and there. Well, last week we struck gold in a couple little shops in Plaza Midwood ...and then....after many friends telling us about it...we visited The Sleepy Poet ....WHICH....WAS.....AMAZING (and really super affordable). We found quite a few pieces that we fell totally in love with and had to pick up.
First, is this set we decided to make into a cabinet for our dishes. LOVE. (And, I insisted on getting the teapot...because it's cute).
We also found this "one-of-a-kind, unusual china cabinet/coat rack" (that's what it was labeled as anyway)....it has old forks and spoons screwed into the wood.....uhhhh.....yes, we'll take that one please.
And here's our cabinet and table that we already had - I've got to say....I'm loving the contrast of modern vs. antique. Yes, very much. :)
So, now that you've seen the dining room - thoughts on a color choice????
Happy Thursday. :)
