How To Embellish Antique Shutters

Once upon a time there were two ladies who love to shop for antiques . . .

just love the thrill of the hunt.

Many times when these ladies find something that they both like,

they often say to each other, “no you take it, no you take it”

but in this case, the other Fair Lady spotted these beauties first,

in a basket tucked in a corner on the floor and they were the perfect items for her home.

Buffalo Checks in the Dining Room

Hello everyone!

I have been a bit M.I.A. recently . . .

~ ~ working on my projects for an upcoming event.

Today, I want to show you a bit of “buffalo” in the dining room . .

It all started with this:

Dining Room

Dining Room Bench

A pillow that my friend Linda made for me . . as a gift . . .

~ ~ with leftover fabric (from Ikea) from another project you will soon see.

And, I shall reveal on Monday, why a pillow of Linda’s is famous!!

French Linen

My inspiration also came from this French linen tea towel . .

French Linen

A tea towel that I purchased in France last year . .

~ ~ at a fabulous fabric store in Normandy.

Buffalo Check Valance

I needed a bit of a softening effect on the windows . . .

~ ~ however, did not want to obstruct our view and do not need privacy . .

~ ~ ~ ~ as no one can see us but the deer and maybe a golfer or two.

Dining Room

So again, Linda to the rescue!!…and she whipped up my valances in no time!

Dining Room

The colors of the fabric also go so well with the Pottery Barn side chairs.

Dining Room

I love the new look . .

~ ~ and glad that the windows have that “blown out look” . .

~ ~ ~ ~ as you would probably have seen the window washer!!

Wishing you all a great weekend and a Happy Easter!!!
