Snippets from my new home...

Thursday, April 17, 2014

Ive been posting a lot of photos on instagram and twitter of my new house. Its been so exciting unpacking all the little things Ive saved away over the years and seeing how everything works together. Dave & I havent got the place completely sorted yet but one room that is coming together is our living/dining room which was two small rooms that have been made open plan.
We decided to make the back wall a little dining nook, I got this table from my grandpa's house it was orgainally a dark wood which I didnt like as our living room only has two little windows so not that bright. So I painted the top with Annie Sloan chalk paint in pure white and the legs in louis blue, then I scuffed up the edges with sandpaper and painted it with lacquer to keep it protected.
