I've got spring fever BAD and since I have no money to paint (it's coming, it's coming) and no money for new things, we're making do with what we have. We rearranged the living room. And Saturday I completely re-did the dining room.
We now have an artsy/multimedia dining room. It holds our record player, bookshelves, reading chair, has an art gallery wall for my kids, and holds our family table where we eat our meals as well. I'd like to fit my kids art easel in there, but that will happen this ACTUAL spring, when the bird feeder my dad made us for Christmas can finally be put outside (it is so beautiful!).
So, here are some pics of my "new" dining room:
|This is an "in process" shot. The bookshelves used to be on either side of the hall entrance. |
The bookshelf on the right side of that door had a rocking chair in front of it.
|This is the cushion chair that my children and I adore and Mr. Curly|
would rather get rid of. It used to be in our living room.
It needs a lamp, but I think it looks quite cozy here.
|The rocking chair that used to be in front of the |
bookshelves. While the blue blanket on the seat
might look funny, it actually ties the rest of the
room together nicely. I'm looking for that color
material to make a nice cushion for that chair.
The cushion chair is now the perfect bedtime story spot - all three kids and I can cuddle close for that time. I'm thinking I'll check out some of our flea market stores for an old lamp. I mean, when you have an old record player and use old record player speakers for plant stands, the lamp has to be vintage too - right?
