More Changes In The Dining Room

Hello there! Today I wanted to share a few more changes in the dining room. 

You can see I took your advice and painted the scroll thing above the window oil rubbed bronze. :) I think it stands out much more now. I love when y'all help me decide what to do. :)

Next up, I want to share this beautiful burlap runner that my friend Selene from restoration beauty made for me. Isn't it darling? I love it, Selene! Thank you again for making it for me! I love burlap anything and it adds so much to my dining room. I've wanted a burlap runner for a long time and I think it gives the room a nice finishing touch. :)

Here's a close up. Isn't the ribbon perfect? 

Here's a close up of the scroll, newly painted with ORB.

I think it looks so much better now. It even makes the new pictures on either side of the window stand out. 

Here's a new mirror in the foyer. Well, technically it's not new. My hubby made it about 20 years ago. We haven't been using it since we moved to this house. I'll show you in another post where the previous mirror ended up. :) 

Isn't it pretty? I love the color of the stain. 

One more pic of the pretty runner. :)

And for the most exciting news of the cabinet knobs arrived yesterday...a whole day EARLY!!! I was very anxious to set them next to the pulls (that we've had for about a month) to see if they matched. And they did! I thought it was an almost perfect match. They were from different vendors, so I was concerned about using them together, but I love how they look.

Well, obviously my hubby is going to be very busy this weekend installing lots and lots of hardware! I also finished painting the cabinet feet yesterday, so he'll need to install those too. Oh, and I ordered a chalkboard print from Dear Lillie when they had their big Memorial Day sale (I used some early birthday money) and it's supposed to come Friday and he said he'd make me a custom frame for it. But don't worry, he loves doing things like that. Any time he gets to be out in the garage working with tools, he's a happy camper. :)

Y'all have a great day!

  5. Lisa, I love so many things in this post :-) you're new table runner, you're new hardware, I LOVE how your scroll came out, really is so much more visible!! And, not to mention you're mirror! I also think the wreath hanging on it so PRETTY!!

    1. Hi Sherri! Do you know how much I look forward to your sweet comments? :) Thank you so much! You were totally right about painting that scroll. I can actually see it now. :) I looked for that wreath for a long time. I knew I wanted a lavender wreath, but for some reason it took me forever to find one. I finally came across it at Joann's for 40% off! That was a happy day. :)

    2. Awww, thanks for your sweet words ♥ I look forward to your posts!! Great bargain on that wreath :-)

  6. Love the new runner....the ribbon is so pretty! The metal scrolly looks great in the oil rubbed bronze now too! Oh and the mirror is really it in your entry way. Can't wait to see your kitchen!!!! So glad your hardware arrived and matches perfectly :o)

  7. Everything looks so good friend!! Love all the updates that have been going on! I'm so glad you liked the runner so much!! It goes perfect in your dining room! It was a pleasure making it for you! I can't wait to see the hardware on your kitchen cabinets!!!

  8. Oh, yay, you painted it and it looks great! Things really do snowball, don't they? You think you are going to tweak one simple little things and pretty soon and entire room is involved in a redo! It really looks lovely, Lisa!
