A few Photos of my dining room.

I am trying to get to my decorating since moving back. I have tons of things going on, like most of you... I have such a high ceiling and a walk way going not quite down the center of the room, so, it makes for a kinda split up room. I have a dark wood dining room set that belonged to my grandmother and i crawled on it when i was a baby.. many before me did too. I have an old dark wood dresser i am using for an extra buffet table and storage.. Then i have odd and end pieces which i love and wanted to use. Any way I have so much more to do, and find some great things to hang on the walls.. I do have one thing i am going to do... I have a , well over an hundred year old piano thing, you know when you raise it up to expose the keys to play... lol.. Well one of those, i am going to make a plate rack out of it... NOw it is dark wood.. So do i paint it the wall color, or leave it dark like the buffet and table and add some decals of roses to it? Any way here are a few of the things i have done so far.

Oooh Lovely, you have very fine pieces of furniture here Sheila. I don't know how you feel about painting them, but I certainly would.. I think the pieces would show up nicely, besides its a good idea to keep your pieces all the same color to some extent if you have the buffet in there. If you leave the top part dark on your dining table and maybe the dresser that would look good too. What do you think girl?

What a great idea using the piano thingy for a plate rack, that will certainly look nice white along with your painted furniture. haha You know where I'm going with this don't you? I have other ideas, but I don't want to over do it!

Hey I think whatever you decide to do will look great after you play with it for awhile.

Much Love to YOu*

Hi Sheila!

It has been too long! I was just getting ready for you to be all settled on your 10 acres, and now you are back in your old house! The more things change, the more they remain the same! Hee-hee. Glad you are doing well.
