Our Summer Dining Room

All of the furniture in our dining room used to be cherry stained. Rather than buy a new set, I simply painted all of it Benjamin Moore White Dove, followed by staining and distressing! Such a difference a can of paint can make.
It's fun to breathe new life into your furniture by painting it.
I love to "shop the house" to create new vignettes.
Rather than buy new, lighter lamps, I simply painted two lamps that I had on hand.
We added inexpensive floating shelves from Lowe's to our wall ... easy project and a great way to be able to showcase your pieces!
