The dining table is from Great Bridge Furniture from 2003, and was strictly kid-purchased. The body is all solid wood, but the top is laminate, and cleaning is a BREEZE. That is it's sole function. I always try to keep interesting tablescapes on it, since it can be seen in the entry/living room. My absolute favorites are vintage table linens and sometimes I catch Anthro cloth napkins and placemats on clearance. But I never pay full-price for that stuff. I pick up fresh flowers about every 10 days or so for the table, and Jay likes it too. If I go too long without buying them, he gets them for me. We usually get something seasonal. I am not a big fan of red roses or carnations, so the rule is pretty much anything but that. Haha!
The hutch is from my aunt. I admired it for YEARS, and when we moved to Iowa, she gave it to me. I love family pieces. They mean so much more than a store-bought piece.
The credenza is also from my father in law- from cleaning out his mother's home.
The light was a special order from Home Depot, but still a steal, as it was on clearance. We replaced the hideous light that had about 1,000 pieces of rectangular glass on hooks. But we sold it at a yard sale for $10!
The color of paint on the upper portion of the walls is "Castle Path" and the bottoms is "Mocha Accent" by Behr. The ceiling is painted blue. I love Nate Berkus, and have his decorating book. He said in that book that everyone should paint their ceiling a color and not white. And since he is so cute, I had to do what he said. I ABSOLUTELY love it! It was a lot of work, but I will always have blue ceilings in every house I ever live in from now on. It is one of those details that sort-of goes unnoticed, but makes a room warmer. I can't tell you how many times I have walked into that room, and looked at the ceiling. Silly? Maybe, but it makes me happy.
Okay, that is all I can think of... I still have a headache, so if you have a question about something I have forgotten, just ask! :)
