Welcome to Favourite Things Friday ....can you believe how fast this year is speeding by? For those of you not familiar with this little linky party- Friday is the day to post something that you love and share it with everyone who wants to pop by and have a look. You can choose anything you like. Easy! Just use the linky widgety thing at the bottom of this post to show off your fave thing.
My favourite thing this week is a finish. This week I am thrilled to announce that we had a finish on the dining room renovation. After months of painting and sanding and goodness knows what else it's done! It doesn't get much favourite-r than that.
This is what the dining room looked like before we started. Dark, Dreary and Yuk. I was auditioning tables and chairs for months. I auditioned at least three sets of chairs, which means I was at set Number 4 when I finally got the ones that were perfect for this table...I know. I'm insane. Wanna buy a used not needed chair anyone-I have plenty!
And for those of you who may not recall, just when I had given up hope after months of looking for the "perfect" kitchen dresser I found this gem ...which I thought had massive potential. And then we had to have the "will I /wont I paint it" conversation. Several times...before a decision got made.
And here's what it looks like now...
Everything in this room was picked up on the cheap, recycled and painted into submission. Did I mention it's all second hand?- every last stick of it.
How I love Ebay...
Those chairs look exactly the way I imagined they would with this dining room. Perfect! It's amazing what 25 bucks worth of funky upholstery fabric can do .
It's going to take some getting used to all that white. But I'm happy with the results - even if I am still hunting for the perfect light fitting. Repeat after me "It's finished " . Next stop- bathroom renovation. Ugh. I cant even think about it.
FTF is having Friday off next week because I'll have a house guest and I'm going to be busy trying to show Little Miss Sunshine as much of my part of the world as time will permit. I'll be back the week after with more Favourite Things!
