Unfortunately my dining room table is still in sad shape. I have yet to make it to Harbor Freight for my sander. Soon…very soon…
But I have been able to work on a few other things in the dining room. Want to take a peek?
The 2 lanterns were a GW find for $2.50 a piece. The little bird is from Dollar Tree. The 2 books (Shakespeare) were given to me by my husband when we were in high school. The recycled glass jar was on clearance at TJ Maxx for $4 and filled with pebbles from Dollar Tree. The reeds are also from Dollar Tree. My husband and I made the Name Boards and you can find my tutorial here.
New table center piece.
The iron pot holder/shelf thingy is from Home Goods for $16.99 (compared to one in a kitchen magazine for $49.99). Everything else I already had from over the years. The glass oil bottles were from Big Lots clearance. The grapes were from Dollar Tree. The old Italian cook book was passed onto my husband. And the 3 cute, chubby little bakers are my favorite…they are an old Dollar Tree find :)
Pondering… What to hang from the hooks? I’m not sure I want to do anything too heavy or that I would need to take down and use often. Should I hang a decorative pot/pan or 2?? Maybe picture frames hung with ribbon??
What do you think?
