In the dining room, I have rearranged our existing furniture to give it a fresh feel and see what I like. With the table lined up long-ways to the window, I felt it gave more room for a table on the only wall without a door or window. I would love to have a sideboard table like this, but it isn’t a high priority financially.
I saw this collection of botanical prints and was inspired to add some to our house. I ordered this book from Amazon, because I wanted to use drawings of flowers that are native to our area (many of which are now in my own yard thanks to my mom). I framed them in gold frames that I picked up at Goodwill and used a Martha Stewart metallic glaze in Coffee to tone down the gold.
There were quite a few more prints that I would like to have used, so I may add more down the road. For now I am displaying Atamasco Lily, Red Cardinal flower, Fly Poison, Dwarf crested iris, Red Buckeye, Dutchmen’s Britches, False Soloman’s Seal, Eastern Columbine, and the Red Chokeberry.
On the side table, I placed a lemon button fern on a milk glass cake stand.
