Altar’d Home Tour {Dining Room}

This is more of a collage of pictures, because I honestly rearrange my dining room twice a month, at least. I love to change things up, and rearranging is a trick I use on myself to clean a room. I don’t like to clean, but if I know I can rearrange and get a whole new look I’m willing to clean.

I found a collection of old spoons at a trade show & decided to display them by gluing them to a canvas decoupaged with old hymnal pages.

I found an old Victorian lamp shade with ugly fabric and fringe! hanging all over it- I stripped it and hung it from my Dining room light fixture. 

During one of my cleaning/rearranging sprees, I moved the book cases that my Dad built for me into the Dining Room in place of the sofa table.  I love them, and love displaying small treasures.

This picture was taken about 6 months ago, and I LOVED this table that we made with ply wood, but it turned out to be not so kid friendly. 🙁 

We are preparing to move to Pearland, so our house is a bit upside down right now, but I can’t wait to decorate our new house!

We are having a huge moving sale soon too!

    Did I miss finding out about this rug, yet? I think i remember saying you were going to be posting more information about it. Six months later I am still LOVING this room!

    I have a crappy black IKEA bookcase that I am going to transform into something like your beautiful bookcase !! Hope it will look 1/2 as nice as yours, but almost anything will be an improvement !!

    I love your blog/website. Very inspirational. I am just waiting for my “pseudo” chalk paint chairs to dry. I cannot decide on the final colour… I have 4 so far. After looking at your portfolio, I am soooo loving the Hazy Gray Armoire. Or maybe AS French Linen. I realise that computer screens are not good enough to go by, and so I am going to Home Depot with my conversion chart you provided. Hubbie says to just do 4 different coloured chairs… I just might. 😉 Thanks so much for the chart by the way. Oh, could you tell me if Hazy Gray is actually the name of the paint colour and if so, what kind is it.
    Thanks again and keep up the great work. — Annie from Ontario
