Dining Room Update

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.

I think Habitual Rearranger fits me well because I am never settled on designs, colors, or placement of items in our home. I drive Bradley crazy sometimes, but I keep figuring out new and better ways of doing things! I am not striving to be profound or an expert on anything in this blog. It is simply a way to keep a record of all of my adventures - home and life - for me to reference and also for my loved ones to follow along. I am a born and raised Georgia girl. I don't think I would enjoy living anywhere except the south. Bradley and I spent six and a half years in our starter home and are now in our forever home, a 1970s traditional two story brick house. I love getting into all kinds of projects around our house, and I try to document all the dirty details here if for no one else than for me.
