By now you know I am dreamy yet frugal.
I’ll share a few details.
Behind the glass: wedding china (Ranier by Noritake) and tissue flowers made by me.
Table and hutch are awful ugly outlet finds (80 bucks a pop).
Covered the hutch in gloppy layers of chalk paint
and painted the table with semi-gloss enamel.
Zero worries about chips, scratches,
or peeling…only adding to the timeworn look
that works for us.
The doors are South American walnut, and the speakeasies function.
Flowers from the yard, an old milk can,
Venetian mirrors (anthropologie), jute rug (Target),
German grain sack (A Beautiful Mess),
antiqued silver chandelier (Lowe’s), and
lace curtains made in Belgium were
a wedding gift from my mom.
The rug’s scale is prob all wrong from a designer’s perspective:
evidence of my rebellious renegade side.
It is nubby lovely and will work until something
more fabulous comes along.
Walls: Benjamin Moore White Sand
The comfy chairs have been with us for 15 years,
and I just changed their color from antique
to a beachier bright, re-covering the seats with
a vintage matelasse coverlet.

It’s true ya know.
Some of us are looking at the stars.
Sharing this post with these parties and Miss Mustard Seed…
Marian recently spotlighted
our breakfast area, and I always look forward
to her Friday posts inviting creatives to gather
with furniture transformation and inspiration.
I have been a bit too busy lately; and
taking a cue from the serenity here,
I plan to take a deep exhale
and slow it down
so peace may
Peace to you right where you are.
