My Dining Room...

I thought I would share some quick pictures of my dining room today to give you a little peek into my world. Actually it's a very little peek because my world is much messier and chaotic, but this is a slightly "read" up version!

A shelf someone gave my mom that I redid. It was shiny green oak. More old country than prim!

My hutch, it used to be white, but I recently redid all my furniture in there to black because I got a new black table and chairs and just could not find non-modern black furniture anywhere, well not in my price range anyway! So I took it all out in my townhouse sized yard and spray painted it all because it's not real wood so it can't be sanded!

The top of my hutch. The tin breadboxes were my grandparents. I think they are just the cutest things!

My dad's old cowboys. They are really heavy I'm guessing they are a cast iron? I'm sure painted with some nice lead based paint too! They are on my hutch beside the mustard box.

Most of the items on this shelf belonged to my grandparents. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the picture in the middle. I scanned it and use it as my banner for my blog and my Etsy shop.

Close up.

Close up of the frames corner.

Command centeral! There's a little table and chairs underneath that Asa loves to sit and draw at.

Close up. This pretty much sums up my life! :) But I wouldn't have it any other way!

I absolutely love your prim dining room!
Everything in there makes it so warm and welcoming...I bet you have many guests who don't want to leave!
Looking at others homes gives me so many ideas for my own! Like for instance in yours I love the window hanging on the wall with the crow and wreath. Gives me an idea on what I can do with one of my walls! So thank you for sharing that with me!
Have a great Monday!

Wow! I love your dining room! The black pieces really are prim! It looks like a cozy place to hang out! I like the screen hanging with the crow perched on it too!
Your hutch is great!

Have a great week!

Found your blog and I love it! I've added it to my faves! I love your dining room. I just picked up a "not real wood" shelf this weekend that I plan to throw some spray paint on! It was at a thrift store so I couldnt pass it up!
