I am so fortunate to have a lot of people in my life to look out for me when it comes to furniture. I guess they know I will just love it and use it! So when my broker called me and said one of her clients was wanting to give her dining set and china hutch to a loving home before she moved, she called me and I immediately said yes!!
I saw some distant pictures of it before I went and looked personally, and I thought for sure I would want to paint it black and redo my living and dining area yellow, gray and black. That all changed the moment I got the pieces in my house. They were in such good shape, I couldn't bare to touch them with paint, so I just left them as is and did some updating with my brown and turquoise scheme. I was getting tired of blue, to be honest, but the furniture gave me a boost of love with it again. I'm not completely finished with all of it, but this is the dining room.
Everything was in excellent condition, with the exception of the back of one of the chairs, which will be fixed soon.
A hutch has been on my wish list for quite some time, I was so glad when I saw the condition this one was in! I now finally have a place to show off my wedding china.
I got my gallery wall started again. It's miles from being finished, but it's a good start!
Those curtains I stitch witched five years ago sure have held up.
Here is just a little progression of the room so far...still not 100% where I want it, but certainly a much better improvement!
