Project for the week

Our home doesn't have a real dining room...its more of an eat-in-kitchen-transition-room. We have lived here almost 4 years and I have never quite known what to do with the area. Well- I am finally at a place I can live with.

We bought a round table, a bench and used the four chairs from our previous set. I went with black/white/yellow. Which at first doesn't really seem like me- but I love it!

I also repainted our buffet. I was given this buffet, which was found in a chicken barn on an old farm. I tried to strip it first- but that was going to take tooooooo long! So I painted it my standard colors of olive green and off white. You can kind of see it behind Kynna and her "friend"- sorry its the best pic I could find.

Its now black and light beige to match the bench. I needed something out of the ordinary- my house is basically the same four colors (warm neutrals) through out and this is a nice new contrast.

If you know me- then you know its very much me! I love it........ I think John is still warming to it! :o)

That buffet turned out wonderful!! I am the same way... we have the same greens and neutral throughout the house. It's so hard to break away from that so maybe this will help me a little bit!
