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 brrrrrrr! its cold here in S. W. Florida and everywhere for that matter hope you are as warm as can be. This winter I wanted to go with a winters farm theme. I crafted a sign my imaginary WinterCrest Farm and all the farm items to go with it . I painted things I had been saving when I conjured up this idea months ago.
So my kids thought I was crazy saving the Mrs. Butterworths plastic bottles but I gave them a coat of black chalk paint and added the price seemed fitting because the farm sign says pure maple syrup.
White lights and a few baron branches to give the winter glow
This little ceramic piggy bank also got a lick of paint
I added my vintage wooden breadbox filled with raffia and some blue and white dishware
A simple rag garland
So this mantle display did not cost me any money just stuff I was saving and some paint and an old piece of wood !
Well I have been absent from the blogger world for some time , reason being I'm just too darn busy reading all the other wonderful blogs and their inspiration keeps me crafting and building and getting into all kinds of creative trouble....But I have created a very vintage looking backsplash for nearly nothing. I scanned through my mind repeatedly for a unique backsplash that would not break the bank yet it had to be smashing looking. Low and behold after a thorough first take my idea was "born".
All you need for this project is Aluminum foil, a stencil of your choice, white glue, paint for highlighting, water based sealant if you choose to.A Flat surface for working, a soft cloth and plenty of patience.
hhSo, what do you think? you like the look? Now lets get started. The process is as follows: Place your stencil on a flat surface place your piece of tin foil on top of the stencil, take your very soft cloth and gently rub the foil and you will get the imprint of the sten…
Hi there welcome! Hope everyone is enjoying the day. Lets talk Shiplap for a bit, I was thinking that Joanna Gaines of Fixer Upper was maybe just a tiny bit over doing it with her shiplap but let me tell you she has introduced a wonderful way to explode your home with vintage style and beauty her excitement is fully understood now.....thank you Joanna for introducing me anyway to such a smashing wall finish.
So this is something I wanted to try for a bit , I have a huge wall in the kitchen that I cant really remedy meaning everything I do there I really am not happy with until now that is........people all you need is a paintbrush measuring tool lots of masking tape, dark paint and light paint and you can achieve the "shiplap look". Lets take a look
ok so this is just a flat black painted wall and you do need a dark base color or if you prefer use a light base color and dark on top but the most important trick to all this is CONTRAST For this Faux shiplap application …
