I saw this table and wanted it but could not afford it. Craigslist to the rescue! $500. Sold! Although we don't eat in the formal dining room all the time, we don't wait on company. Meals are eaten here for every celebration we can think of. So nothing too fancy. The leather chairs are perfect for the kids.
For a borrowed house, the room really does have nice finishing touches like the crown molding and arched windows. Having nice shutters saved me lots of moola. Otherwise, there would be a sheet hanging here.
This is a reminder of the blank canvas we started with.
This curio cabinet has been with us a long time. Amazing it hasn't fallen apart as many times as it's been moved. I like how it echoes the arch of the window.
The flea market find needle points were in awful frames when I purchased them. (Didn't think to take before and after pictures back then.) But, the difference of new frames took them from dime store look to treasured antiques.
The buffet/console table is a reproduction. Love the details. Thought I'd try the layered look with the monogram and the "knight in shining armor" antique art. Love the tortoise shell frame it's in.
Thankful that I found a knight in shining armor in real life!
