Well, I've been doing a little tweeking on my never ending issue room " the breakfast room. " We added some scrap book paper for a little bit of color~I've seen that all over blog land & I decided to try it.
This is what our hutch looked like before...
Now~ I've added some silver tea pots and a topiary ( that my genius made :)
A cloche ( Thank you Lynne for telling me to to get it out of my garage ) a cake plate and candles where also added to the table. I was always worried that the cats would knock anything over but so far so good....there are NO BAD KITTIES in our house...lol. :)
Now, I FINALLY got my rug from shopnbc.com.....WOOHOO!! Mammaw introduced me to it.....that's probably not a good thing. :) I will be getting new chair cushions,too.
These pictures are dark I took them late @ night...sorry.
I've always wanted a rug in here. YEAH! How does it look?
The rug was $114. I thought that was a GREAT price!
Now for the question: I know those of you who knew me back then ( RMS days ) are tired of seeing this table. I am TIRED of this table! I have GOT to do something with it. It matches nothing in our home. But, Mister & I did buy it when we literally lived on LOVE ( awe ) :) So, I'm not willing to part with it. But I need to stain it or paint it or something. I've been talking about doing this for well over a year. But honestly, I'm terrified. I have a chair in my garage that matches this table and I'm going to "practice" on it. I will BE BRAVE & do WHATEVER you tell me to do. I can NOT make this decision on my own. I am at my whits end! Originally, I was going to stain the table and paint the chairs the hutch color but the rug is a little darker that I thought it would be. Great grandmothers sewing machine has to stay in the room, it's darker wood and it matches the frame of the embroidery piece Mister had framed for me. Plus, I LOVE it. So it stays. :)
I really need your help.....Paint the table, stain it? I can change the hutch color if necessary, too. It's already been 5 colors. :) Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated. I plan to start this project Saturday bright & early so come on all you Decorating Divas~ I need you. Please hurry...lol. :) THANK YOU!!
