This week I’ve been playing musical chairs in the dining room, as well as adding a few touches of Spring.
We’re having typical Spring weather around here…..warm and sunny one day, and cold, windy, and snowy the next!
I’m so ready for Spring and fresh flowers!
I was in our attic the other day, moving furniture and boxes around looking for something (that I never found!), and discovered two cane back french chairs that I had purchased a couple of years ago at an estate sale.
I already had four similar chairs that I used at our breakfast table, and I remember when I bought the two extra, that I had intended to use them all together in the dining room.
They needed a little bit of a makeover to match the four I already had, so I drug them downstairs and did a quick update (more on that later).
Our dining table is pretty long and can seat eight people easily, so I swapped the cane chairs in the breakfast room for the grain sack chairs in the dining room, now giving me six cane backed side chairs in the dining room……did you follow all of that?!?
I love the way they look in this room now!
And since I was refreshing a little bit with the new chairs, I decided to bring in a few Spring touches.
Placed in the center of the table is a large French jardiniere filled with faux flowers and greenery….there’s nothing blooming here yet, so I have to make do with the faux kind!
On the sideboard I placed my favorite old birdbath filled with moss, nests, and birds, along with a few dried hydrangeas.
I added a sweet moss rabbit on one side and a new lamp from Soft Surroundings on the other.
I love having six (quasi matching) side chairs in the dining room now!
I’ll show more of the before and after in a separate post but it was really easy!
Don’t forget, today is French Country Fridays!
Be sure and visit my favorite French blogging friends to see this week’s inspiration!
