Happy Late New Year!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!  We sure did!!  I have been a bad blogger, but I promise to be better!  It has been so fun redoing things around the house since I took down all of my Christmas decorations.  You know the saying "shop the house"  Well I definitely done that!  I finally got around to redoing my new dining table and I LOVE IT!  I painted the bottom white and I am probably going to glaze or something to it later on, but for right now I like it white.  I stripped the old stain off the top and used Danish Oil in Dark Walnut and I really like the color alot.  I paid $50 for this table, what a bargain!  I used my chairs that I had in there before and recovered the seats in linen.  I really like my bench there too!  I think it looks like a farmhouse table now.  I would like another bench later on but this one will do for now.

This is what it looked like before

and now the after

I moved my black table that was under my mirror in my dining to the kitchen (will show you later).  I moved this white little table in.  For this table I painted it white and distressed it a ton!  I love that basket underneath that I got while thrifting and I put my chenille throw in it.  My  little cutie owl on top was brown and I painted him white.

This chair came with my dining room table and I was really sad that there was only one because I love it.  I painted her a pretty turquoise and she is beautiful now!  I gave her a new seat too.  Here she is at her new home.

I will be back to show you some fun things I have  done over the past few weeks. 

I am linking to a few parties today
