Summer Dining Room Tour & Boho Doily Bunting
Last summer we planted a couple of hydrangea bushes in our side yard and this year we have gotten some beautiful blooms.
I still kept things simple and neutral, but added in a touch more turquoise with the candles and the stool (freshly painted in my favorite General Finishes Corinth Blue).
I love collecting crocks and pottery and this was a recent $4.99 thrift store find.
I set up the buffet as a drink station. My oldest loves when we make sun tea (especially with peach flavored tea). Even the straws compliment our color scheme perfectly...I think I am a bit obsessed with the combo of white+aqua+black!
I also changed the heavier black chairs on either side of the sideboard to these chippy antique chairs that I painted with General Finishes Antique White. They add a wonderful balance of old and worn to the space.
For a bit of color and fun I created and hung this Boho Doily Bunting.
This is so simple to make. Just purchase a few fabric doilies at the thrift store (and yes, I was hoarding them because an elderly lady was also looking through the stash). Let's make doily crafts cool again for the younger generations, OK?
I left the creamier colored doilies natural, and the white doilies got transformed with some Rit Dye. (Just follow the directions on the bottle.) I used Aquamarine and Teal for this project.
Once they were dried and ironed I strung them together with twine Since the doilies were a little floppy when they were hung up, I supported them with a tiny bit of poster putty stuck to the mirrors.
