I recently took you on a tour of my summer kitchen, and you may have noticed I brought back our big harvest table. Last summer, I still had a small round dining table and slipcovered arm chairs in here (see first photo).

    LOVED this post! I do a French-inspired look in my home but am always wishing there was a way to do it a little more rustic French. 😉 It’s hard when there’s wall to wall carpeting in the big LR! LOL! There are plans to remove it someday….. Many great inspirational ideas here!

    Loved seeing the Giannetti video. I’ve seen many photos but it was great to see it come alive!

      You always bring up the best topic ideas, Connie! Truly. How to get the look when you have carpet is a great post idea that I think a lot of folks would read. Thank you for your ever thoughtful musings. I agree about seeing the video…wish I had time and talent to make videos AND blog. Maybe someday! Thanks for reading and making this so fun. 🙂
