My goal this year is to finish at least *one* long term project that I’ve had sitting around for years. I’ll usually pick up one of these projects, work on it for a week, then put it down for the rest of the year. I never understood why us crafters have certain projects that we can’t seem to get through until an ungodly amount of time has passed. They aren’t super large projects either – I guess we get a bit bored and want to cast on (or start) the next thing.
I’ve finally gotten my master bedroom the way I like it – I’m still missing a bit of furniture, but I’m loving how open and bright everything else!
I know you’ve seen bits and pieces of the dining room over the last few posts – but I feel like I’ve finally got it in a finished enough state to fully show it off.
My dining room is more of a space next to the open kitchen and dining room, but I tried to give it its own style so it stands out a bit. This room is the most formal of all my rooms, and is where I keep my fine china and teacup collection. The dining room set is from the 70’s I believe, and I recovered the ugly puke green cushions as soon as I got it a few years ago. The china cabinet and china within was a birthday gift from my mother a few years back. The plates on the wall are from one of my favorite shops in London, called Utility, located next to Kings Cross Station.
Here are some of the recent goodies I’ve picked up in my explorations around Nashville. I’m always on the look out for great antique and home shops, if you know of some, please let me know!
