Progress continues at the Dutch colonial!
One day this past weekend,
I insisted that we haul our dining room table + chairs
over to our new dining room:
Man, that table is HEAVY!
I love it, though.
Its lumber came from an old factory in Manchester, England.
Isn’t that a cool story?
I thought so.
But wait. It looks a little sad, all by itself, don’t you think?
Here ’tis, all staged + pretty, inside our current house:
Check out our art ledges!
G.O. made them from an old door frame
+ bent the iron brackets himself!
Man, I really miss that Pottery Barn rug!
I just think a room looks unfinished without a rug.
So. You might be asking,
“Why isn’t your dining table in the center of the dining room,
where it’s supposed to go!?”
Funny story: G.O. asked the same thing!
I just said “trust me” + kept moving.
Here’s my plan.
The dining table sits semi-inside the bay on one side . . .
. . . + on the opposite side, this:
Yes! It’s my beloved postal sorter
from my old retail store, Heart in Hand!
We are currently using it as a media center
+ display piece in our living room.
I am thinking possibly a home office in our Dutch colonial.
