The walls are good ole Laura Ashley 4, which I had in my old DR too I think, I can't remember, but I know it I had it somewhere. It's a great medium shade green that really goes with a lot of other greens. We did the faux molding on the bottom to look like panels to break up the green. The rug is another Overstock find. You will find a common theme throughout this tour (if you stick it out, LOL) that I found GREAT wool rugs on Overstock. Picking colors can be tricky but if you really aren't sure, you can order a small one and send it back if it's not right, just to make sure.
This is what you see when you look to the right at the front door
This is a different shot from the entrance off the Family room
Another shot from that way
Hutch with all my thrift store, consignment store and freebies. I love vintage, junk and etc, what can I say?
I have a love/hate relationship with flash on my cameras. I took this picture with flash and without. No flash won.... My mom found the lamp at one of our favorite consignment shops and I got the leopard shade at The Christmas Tree shop for $6.99. I actually bought two, there is another one later on in the tour. ;)
I love tole. I have some in my kitchen and some in my DR. I don't think I have ever paid more than $10 for any of them. Most of my trays were $2.99 at the thrift store. This is a shot of the whole wall.
This was a china cabinet in my old house. But I had my open hutch (which is now on the opposite wall) in my parents barn, waiting to be used for literally years. While I did love the china cabinet, I really needed a buffet. So I took the top glass part off and donated it. Voila! Instant buffet!
Still need a center piece here. No clue what I want. I drive myself crazy with these things. I think I need a leopard chandy chord too!
The "BLANK" wall. I'm still not sure what I am doing here, but the ideas are a'swirling. I'm going to leave it with nothing until I decide. Could be a long, looooonnnngggg time! Any ideas? I'd love to hear them! I am also going to cover the chandy shades with leopard fabric.
Just a few shots of some of my junkin' treasures!
A long shot of the panels my dear friend Kathleen made. She has been a busy bee helping me! She takes my crazy ideas and makes them a reality. God bless her. I really need to learn how to sew......
The rods were all pieces I have collected over the years, brackets, finials, reeded rods and rings. All at thrift stores and garage sales for literally pennies. I spray painted them all black so they were uniform. It's the little things that excite me.
If you missed Part 1, that is here.
