Tweaking the Dining Rooom

My girl and her man came over on Saturday for dinner.
She helped me tweak my dining room. I have been waiting to finish the table to add some art and do a little rearranging.

She said some of my things were looking a little to much like a "granny's house"...


I wanted to add a little color to the room, so last week I painted this frame.and encountered a
black widow spider!
No joke, I carried that bad girl into my house! When I saw it, inches from my fingers I nearly had a heart attack.
I sucked it into my Dyson.
I hope it is dead.

I wanted to add a little green to the room.

To go with this watercolor I painted.last fall. I saw the image at The Graphics Fairy and changed the colors a bit for my room.

I changed up the buffet, making it less symmetrical, and a bit more vintage glam...ish.

Put these back on the wall, they were originally on the wall where the hutch sits now.

I also got them from the Graphics Fairy.
I love her blog, everything you could ever need to add art, graphics or images to your life!

I love the pops of color.

I think I'll keep it!

  5. I think perhaps your daughter was right. I think the display on the turquoise buffet looks great now...I really love your wallpaper. And now the display looks so good with it. Great job...thanks for linking up this past week at Mod Mix Monday!

  6. I featured this project today on Mod Mix Monday!

  7. Love that pop of turquoise against the backdrop of that fantastic wallpaper. Nothing about that room looks grannyish to me. :) Once I tried to suck up a spider in the vacuum when I lived in Louisiana and all of a sudden all these baby spiders started streaming out. Yikes! Have a great day. Tammy
