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 ?
 
Thank you so much for stopping on in today!
