Eclectic, quirky, and sometimes edgy…this is how things look from my front porch.

Dining Room Views

For several months,the dining room has been undergoing a transformation.  First, the floor was painted to reflect more of a cottage look.  Second, three pieces of furniture which were tired and somewhat beat up were transformed with my favorite high-gloss white paint.  Of course, all of this took much longer than I originally thought, but the end results have been worth it.  The hutch that has the soup tureens was given to me by a woman who once lived next door.  It is half of a Hosier cabinet. The other half is in my bedroom.  I purchased the very large Victorian breakfront at a thrift store in Honolulu.  I inherited the pie crust table from my grandparents.  The two-door crackle finish cabinet was a housewarming present from my mother.  It has always been white and actually was the inspiration for the rest of the room.  The green drawing on top of the crackle cabinet came from Dollar General, of all places!
