Well, I guess I’ve had way too much time on my hands – and just as well. I don’t know about you, but I get so busy with the busy-ness (is that a word?) of day to day life, that I don’t really notice how tatty and worn things are becoming and how the clutter and junk piles up so quickly. I thought I had just decluttered our spare room, but when I started side-stepping over stuff, I realized just how much stuff we accumulate over the months. I really have to be more careful about bringing more stuff into the house before getting rid of the old stuff.
Lovely isn’t it? Not! I took 5 garbage bags out of here and one of the end tables. Now at least I can walk across the floor without falling over something!
So while I was in the mood, I took stock of the other rooms in my house that had been neglected over the months – especially the dining area. This corner in particular.
Honestly! What was I thinking putting that basket thingy there? It looks so ugly in that corner. So I shopped around my house and found these for this corner and put the basket thingy by the opposite window out of the way but still functional.
Of course to do that, I had to move this table which was doing nothing but gathering dust and getting in the way. You may recall that this was my old coffee table in the living room
Not even George liked it all that much!
So, having no use for this table anymore, but not wanting to simply throw it out, I decided to turn it into a chalk board.
I could fit quite a long ‘honey do’ list on this 🙂
For some time, Mr. Lifeology and I have been saying that we are not so keen on the green and white dining room furniture any more. We painted these chairs about 6 years ago now and are in need of a change. Also, the chairs are looking very tatty and sad
I have some leftover paint from other projects, so I painted three of the chairs this soft gray
I tried to paint a bus blind onto the panels of my kitchen cart, but it looked horrible, so I painted it over with the soft gray and added chalk board paint to the drawers. Over the next few weeks, I’ll find a lovely picture to paint on these panels.
Next – new cushion covers for the dining chairs and curtains for the living room.
Hope you all have a great weekend.
Talk to you soon.
