HGTV is leading us on. You know those shows where they re-make rooms in 24 hours. HOW? I ask you. How do you paint a room, and then do another coat, and another? Not to mention the touch-ups. WHAT THE HECK?
Yes! We painted it red, and I love it. I changed a few things around in this room, but I did not buy anything new. It is amazing how different you can make a room look with a coat of paint, a few changes, a few measly dollars, and re-arranging the furniture.
I pulled out these vintage trays that I had in my laundry room and added them back to my kitchen. They were my mothers. She got them when she got married. (I just realized that I don't think she would appreciate me calling them vintage) Anyway, they have that look right? They are replicas of Currier and Ives paintings. They represent the seasons. I am just in love with them, and my mother was so kind to give them to me a few years ago.
The best part is when I was cleaning them off there was a sticky little spot. I couldn't help but have a bit of nostalgia. We used to eat on these trays as kids. So the sticky could possibly have been a mess made by me, myself, and I.
I realize that I have done several posts on this very room. First the wainscoting, and then the curtains. I can't help it. This is my favorite room of the house. This is where we read scriptures in the morning. Where my kids do homework, and eat their afternoon snack. Most importantly this is where we gather at the end of the day to be with one another and enjoy a meal. This is the most important room in our house. When we gather for dinner I am at peace. I know that my family is all safely gathered in again; after a day out in the world.
