As busy as a bee!

I really have been!
For years now, our little farmhouse dining room has been
converted into our soap shop.
Well, now that we've retired from making soap,
it's time to transform it back into our dining room.

I found a wonderful, round pedestal table at the thrift store
for under 40.00!!! It was in rough shape but
I knew I could paint it and it'd be just like new.

Then I found four chairs (these will be painted a soft white as well)
that would look great with the new table.

Soooo, that's what I've been busy doing this week!
Priming and painting the table and soon I'll tackle the chairs.

I've hung a pair of my very favorite sheers on the double window.
Here's a close-up of the detail!

I've had this old window for a while now and found a beautiful calendar in book form.
I sliced the pages out very carefully and placed them behind the glass.
No magic here, I simply used clear Scotch tape to tape them to the back!
I've always loved these floral monthly botanical prints ~

A work in progress...the base is finished but the top here had only been primed.
Everything is being painted a soft white and will be very lightly distressed.

I've had this wooden pedestal for a few years and plan on using it
in one of the corners of the room flanking the windows.
I need to put together a beautiful tall arrangement to put on it.

The chairs are still needing to be painted but you can kind of get an idea
of how our little room is coming together!

It's not's not fancy, but I'm SO very happy to have a dining room again!!!

And...I've marked down my little lavender sachets!!
If you want to take a peek, please check out my shop here:

It's time for these sweeties to have a new home!

I'll be sure to share my dining room when I finish ~ already I love it so!!!

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend sweet friends ~

hugs and love,

WHAT a bargain!
I love pedestal tables and the chairs are perfect too!
How lovely to have a separate dining room Dawn - I've missed that since we moved into a townhouse.
Now our kitchen, dining and living are one big area, it's not the same.
Happy weekend in your neck of the woods.

Can we see the chairs when you are finished. Or did I miss something. I was anxious to get to your etsy shop.

What a fantastic deal on the table! I love it. I've had those same sheers for about 10 years and I truly love them. I wish I could find more that pretty.

Wishing you a great weekend!

You always have been a great bargain hunter, I love the table! It's going to look great when it's finished. I am working on my dining room right now too so am on the lookout for some great pieces as well!

Hello Dawn, Very pretty sheers ,they look lovely in the room, and the wooden pedestal will look beautiful with flowers or a large fern. It will look perfect with the table and chairs.Happy decorating.
