Fresh Spring Changes

May 7, 2014

Welcome Friends!


Today I am sharing small changes in the dining area       

I changed things around in the dining area and the living room.
I took the living room curtains and rug and put them in the dining area. 
Then I took the dining curtains and rug and put them in the living room.  
Do you do that?  Switch things from room to room.  
  
Here is the antique stainless steel cabinet.  It sits on the opposite side of the windows. 
 The wall color is Woodlawn Blue by Benjamin Moore



  





Here is an easy tip to hide a nail.
Place a seashell on top of it and it instantly becomes part of the frame. 
 I used two shells from my collection.  I just placed them right on top of the nail.



The beautiful girl in the picture is my daughter Chelsea.  My favorite subject to photograph.
We live in a coastal community, I took these pictures at the end of our road.
If you like my frames you can read how I made them here






I am open to any suggestions on how to decorate the fireplace mantel.  
 There is a built-in to the left of the fireplace. 
 I will share a post about it soon, this way you can see the whole thing.
 In the meantime, if you have any thoughts about it I would love to hear them.

  Thanks For The Visit

Beautiful stainless china cabinet! It really helps us, I think, when we change things up a bit. Makes it fresh. Thanks for sharing your creativity. :-)

Love your cabinet!!! So nice you can switch the rugs and curtains from room to room, really a great idea. Love your fireplace, would be so pretty with a piece of beveled glass cut to fill the space above your mantle.
Thanks so much for sharing at Amaze Me MONDAY...
Blessings,
