My dining room. Not as cluttered as the kitchen was. But, there are plenty of smalls on those shelves. See that cash register in the corner? Neat piece. It's home has been the back right corner of my dining room for years.
This white shelf has been in the back left corner of the dining room for quite some time.
I hung the chain last Christmas. The balls were removed shortly thereafter, but the chain has remained all year. Also, note the mismatched ladder back chairs.
So, now. Not all of the chairs match, but I changed out the red chair pads for chocolate brown chair pads.
Oops! Need to remove the white tags now that I've settled on the brown. I removed the chain from the windows and replaced it with pearl swags over sheers. No. The sheers don't match. I'm not that grown up! *wink* I also removed the cash register and the white shelf from the corners.
This old, gold floral container now holds old metal "twigs". I think the metal pieces came from an old, mattress box spring.
I realize the blue stripes on the old gym floor aren't the soothing neutral I might prefer. But, I am not real hip on sanding down the floors.
I removed most everything from the wall. Maybe I should have taken it all down and started over. Who knows? I am probably not finished with this wall. Just waiting for inspiration.
The sheers actually puddle on the floor, but me and my cats like to see outside, so a knot keeps us all happy.
I hate that I didn't have better "before" pictures. The semi-matching chairs are a good thing. Removing the corner clutter and the wall stuff also opens the room up.
I may be in the market for 8 matching chairs in the near future. But, in the meantime...Whew! This room looks much better!
