Before we continue the tour, I would like to take the opportunity to thank my blogging friends
for the wonderful comments that were left on the last post in regards to the kitchen.
And all the past comments.
I read them all and it always brings a bit of warmth to my heart.
Thank you too, non-commenting visitors.
I love having you too!
Today, the tour continues with
the dining room:
There once was a wall and a door where this counter sits in the forefront of this photo.
Removing the door and wall was one of the best things we ever did.
We did lose cabinet space, but with a little dejunking and using many of the
items as decor we didn't feel it too much.
We love the open bright feel to it!
Our home has been decorated on a shoestring.
Almost everything you see is either second hand,
or the less expensive (lower end ;-) ) IKEA items.
Once again, I have to say , I love IKEA!
And I paint everything!
Hubby and kiddos run when they see me with a paint brush. :-)
Serving dishes we use often,
including melamine dinnerware from Costco.
Painted with an icy blue paint:
(Benjamin Moore: White Satin)
A clock of crocheted roses, of course.
(See Etsy Shop here to purchase clocks like this.)
The crocheted rose made from this pattern.
How about that bright blue paint above the fireplace?
I love it...The NVO might not. ;-)
It's Benjamin Moore: Pacific Blue Parrot
A hand crocheted tablecloth from Norway.
Made by mother's oldest sister, Betsy.
A cross-stitched Norwegian prayer.
Made my moi...back when reading glasses were unnecessary. ;-)
Thanks again for joining me!
(Oh look...do you see Bunny Rose peeking in from the living room,
through the fireplace?...I wonder what she's been up to?
I spy some pale pink yarn on the chair she is sitting on, as well.
Hmmmm...maybe we will find out next week.)
Have a "Dining-a-mite" Day!
