A FRESHLEY PAINTED DINING TABLE, SOME THRIFT FINDS & AWAY TO FIT EVERYONE ROUND THE HOLIDAY TABLE!
Welcome! happy to share with you today! I have been out thrifting a bit and found this grand galvanized pail and this wonderful oil painting of a winter scene.....
I just can sit and really look at this painting as the artist has really captured a cold winters day.
I have big plans for this pail it will actually hold the Christmas tree, it is in new condition a 1.99 find.
I gave the dining room set a new dark bold lick of color, I used a Glidden Diamond flat enamel . The photo does not show the exact color. The color is Deep Wine # 75RR06/129
Many just have 4 chairs so a great alternative for extra seating is a bench. A bench can hold 2 adults or 3 children comfortably . I also have a table height stool that can fit in between two chairs. So with the table leaf and bench 7 can sit comfortably. For Thanksgiving we will be doing buffet style, I will have four tables set up that can accommodate at least 28 people.
The pilgrims were made by my very sadly missed mom, I love putting them out every thanksgiving its almost like she is there with us.
For some added comfort you could use some pillows or sew a cushion.
No distressing just allover bold color
I decided to use my table top clock that I crafted from pallets and hung it in the dining room. I love to keep things evolving around here...I often hear one of the children teasing me about the whereabouts of something seeing that I change things up very often.
I also moved this bakers rack to the living room and it will serve as the drink station for the holidays. I thought about Christmas decorating now but I may wait til the day after Thanksgiving , how about you decking your halls now or waiting ?
Welcome everyone! It's finally Christmas here at Sweet Tea N' Salty Air, a time for rejoice, and happiness to share with family and friends! Traditions are also kept such as here every Christmas morning I make homemade cinnamon buns a sweet doe recipe from my late gram. Well what are you waiting for come on in!
Welcome...hope I find everyone enjoying everything Fall has to offer...as I see it I think that it may be everyones very favorite season. Here in Florida we have no changing leaves or Acorns but we do have some magnificent pinecones and a recent discovery of The Florida paper tree. My daughter and her friends went to the woods to gather some wood for the outdoor fire pit and as I was passing the wagon of cut logs I noticed they resembled birch tree a bit so I went and checked it out better. One of the logs was peeling apart oh I thought this is very cool so I grabbed a few logs and brought them on in the house I peeled one apart.
I thought I would try a couple of things first I covered a old floor board entirely. I used wood glue.
So I crafted this lodge sign just using some stencils and paint and attached these two?, sorry they look like a type of pine cone they were interesting so I gathered some.
Then I thought I would peel off some big enough pieces to wrap around just a typica…
Hello there......looking for a wonderful inexpensive Holiday Craft?? I have just the thing to gather the whole family around the table, serve a little hot cocoa and some cookies and it's a party! This is all you will need to get this party started......
Some basic white paper, scissors, glitter and some glue. The glue you will want to paint the finished snowflakes with but we did add a little water to it. I am so a magazine saver, this is an old one "Martha Stewart Kids", If you follow the numbered steps and besure to get a good fold the results areendless.
It is true no two snowflakes are a like! Once you get a "shovel" full its time to bring them to the glitter box, just a shallow box to sprinkle glitter, before that just a couple brushes of glue which we did in a different box then the glitter.
This is just one cut but once you follow steps 1-5 you can make your own cuts !
Little miss smarty pants which is my oldest daughter decided to show off with he…
