Dining Room Vignette

I am so loving the changes that were made in my dining room. The whole room is so much lighter and brighter than when it was painted red. Still have a few things to do in here, but there are other projects that must be tended to, the biggest one being, organizing the tax information for my extended family's rental business, our info, and doing the actual tax returns for both my daughters. 

Back to something more pleasant...
This is the way I keep my dining room table when it's not set. I keep out the silver chargers with some pretty napkins on them. Maybe I'm just too lazy to put them away!

I found some new candle holders at HomeGoods. The table runner was one of my Goodwill finds. : )

I  changed the shades on the chandelier. The chandelier sheds more light in the room than the previous black shades which sent the light down. I still want to add some crystal beads for some bling.




Thanks for stopping by!

  9. Hi Pam

    Lamp Shades really do make a huge difference on how the light filters around. Love the switch. You can always put the black ones back on come fall. I love your little bird on the book, too

  11. You did NOT find that beautiful piece of work at Goodwill! Our Goodwill is NOT what everyone else's seems to be :/ and I like you love to have my place settings :) tables with beautiful vignettes alone grab my attention but I always end up with something in front of each chair :) Have a blessed week!!!

  18. I missed this yesterday! I really do like this color you chose for your dining room. It's wonderful! I've had black shades before and yes they do direct the light down when it's on. I love, love, love your pineapple lamp! I haven't noticed it before. I like this set up for an unset table! I may have to borrow this idea with the napkins and the chargers. It's a nice look!
