The room just needed a little step up. I painted the cabinet and re papered the back. I thought I wanted a black background floral, but I realized this would be too dark. Also all the wallpaper I loved started at $50/roll. I only needed a small piece, so I didn't want to spend that much. I was at the Habitat for Humanity resale store looking at their paper, when the sales lady told me the store up the street was having a big sale...wallpaper on sale for $7/roll!! They didn't have a lot I liked, but I love this gold/cream damask print.
I was inspired to change my window coverings from this dining room picture I found in Country Living Magazine.
The home owner said she felt like these were "party dresses" for the windows.
I also painted the clock, someday I will find the perfect antique, but now I am in no hurry.
I like how the wall stripes and the plaid fabric relate, also one can never have enough pillows...
I did a little rearranging
added a couple of new thrift finds
and fresh flowers.
I am enjoying the updates, I still may add or change a couple of things...you know a room is never completely done;)
