Crisp & Clean Dining Room !

Let's see what adding one intense color can do to an all white theme... I decided to try yellow , for my new dining room look...Enjoy your visit...
       24hrs ago this hutch got a new look , a fresh coat of white paint...It was once espresso in color . Much much better white , I love the crisp , serene , feeling of living with white...
When we renovated our home I convinced my husband to allow me to put up as much beadboarding  as I wanted to...I chose several places in our home and love the way it can transform a space...

I love the simplicity of this picture!!!

Layered dishes...One of my favourite looks... 
The black & white pics are always nice , but in this case I think the colored pics are best...

A little sneak peak from my "Milk Glass" collection...I will be off to the flea-market today to see if I can find more pieces...It's always nice to group your collections together!!! 

St. Joseph pray for us... 
The corner cabinet is one of my favourite yard-sale finds...$10.00 can you imagine !!!

You will see I was lucky (blessed) enough to find two sets of the pom pom curtains at a second hand store . The other set are in my daughters bedroom ...I hope to find more someday...

The yellow forsythia branches makes the dining room bright and cheerful!!!

Another little peak of one collection..."Silver" Very fun to decorate with especially at Christmas...Thank-You so much for stopping by...Have yourself a Blessed day!!!

  10. Such pretty photos, Lori, and the pop of yellow is so fresh. I also collect milk glass and have those same vases. I found mine for 25 cents each at a yard sale. I love love the statues you have. We only have one so far, St. Francis, a Christmas gift from our Bishop friend a few years ago. I keep an eye out for more but have not found any yet. I would love to have a Virgin Mary figurine.

  11. Hello LOry,

    many kisses
