Another Little Corner in the Dining Room

Happy November 1st to all of you, my friends.  Hard to believe that November is actually here.  Time flies, doesn’t it?


In my last post, I told you that while my friend Becky was here, we played a lot around my house.  We did some major change ups with furniture and such.


I showed you the corner in my dining room with the salvaged screen door and ladder.  Now I want to show you another little corner of the room where one of my favorite  tables now lives.


This chippy green table was a favorite flea market find.

Notice the beautiful new curtains.  They are actually gorgeous throws from IKEA that we used as curtains.  I also have one that I use on an upholstered red chair that I am trying to hide.  These are so versatile and lovely.

You will find stacks of old books all over our home.

I have got so  much more to show you all so come back again soon and see what else we played around with.


Take care and God bless.

This looks beautiful, Amy! I think I have the same throw from IKEA, although I never would have been creative enough to use them as curtains...lovely! The little blue table is fabulous, too. I love how you have accessorized everything so nicely! Very well done! :-)

Hi Amy,
I love your little corner in the dining room. It's so sweet. That green chippy table is wonderful.

Another fabulous corner. You two are on a roll. The table is so pretty and I love the metal balanced with the vintage books.

So much house playing. So little time! I love the idea of the throws on the windows. I can tell even from the picture that it's a cozy look.

I really love that galvanized bucket with the dried hydrangeas!

I want an old shutter. :)

What a great idea for your curtains.

Love it all,

Ooh, I love what you did to make those curtains! How clever! :) And I love that sweet table and how you decorated it. The ruffled runner is SO cute!

Love the little teapot! Such a sweet little spot you've created.

What a pretty little spot, Amy. It sounds like you and Becky had a lot of fun together :)

I love this Amy!! The green table, the shutters and the pages on the shutters are all so adorable. It looks so cozy.

Just beautiful! I'm heading over to the Ikea site to check out throws; I need something heavier for a couple windows before it gets cold.
