Hi, everyone! Hope you're doing well!
Last time in this post I showed you my new farmhouse table centerpiece...
And you've already seen the changes that I made to this area...
I've been tweaking other areas of the dining room as well...just a few small changes here and there. (To see the room's 'before' go to this post.)
For a different look, I brought my collection of green seltzer bottles down from the top of the barn wood cabinet, and gathered them in this wire basket on my buffet.
These bottles are one of the first things that I started collecting when I really got into 'junk'! I bought my first one for a couple of bucks at the flea market many, many years ago! I have a collection of clear ones, too, but I especially love these for their green hues.
I got this shabby old apple basket for a steal at an antique mall. Now it holds a burlap coffee sack and a dried bundle of...something. Looks kinda like baby's breath but not sure what it is...??
Once again my little helper (Bobbi aka Bob) found her way into my new vignette! :)
The barn wood cabinet in the corner is the one that my dad (with my mom's help) made me a few years ago-I cherish it!
It had been awhile since I played around with these shelves, so I decided to switch things up just a bit (even though I kept most of my ironstone collection displayed here.)
I opened the cabinet door so you could get a better look...
I think it's fun to add the unexpected and the whimsical to my displays, so I kept my glove molds on the top shelf...
...and to the second shelf I added a Dundee jar with some old, tarnished forks and a placed a plant inside this tureen...
...then on the next shelf I stacked a little pile of linens onto a platter and grouped 3 'jars' together...
...and on the bottom shelf I added a sweet Madonna next to an enamel sign held up by a flower frog...
...and that's the newly tweaked inside of the cabinet.
My banana crate that I was using as the dining room table centerpiece is now filled with dried plants and has a new home on top of the cabinet. I moved my plate rack with the ironstone platters from the other wall to beside the cabinet.
So that's this corner with its 'new look'...
I pretty much kept this cart on the opposite wall the same.
And just for a different perspective, here's the view from our front hallway looking into the dining room...
There you have it! My newly freshened dining room.
Thanks so much for stopping by and for all your kind comments! They really brighten my day! :)
