SNEAK PREVIEW!!

Just in case you don't remember what the dining room looked like when I bought this house, here is another look:



The previous owner used this room as her living room. I wanted my dining room in this space so it would be close to the kitchen. My Dad swapped the Tiffany lamp with the chandelier and we set up the dining room today. Here are a couple of pictures of my new dining room:





I just love my new wallpaper border and the crown moulding looks so much better bright white. We have worked so hard and are very tired. Daddy is fixing Momma and me a cheese omelet for dinner. YUM! Don doesn't like breakfast food at night (or anytime for that matter!) so I always try to have a breakfast dinner when my parents or his Mom visit.

We have a family of deer that live in the woods in the backyard. I have seen the momma doe and the three fawns up close, but never when I had my camera handy. Last week my father spotted the entire family walking in the backyard. By the time I got my camera this was the only shot I could get which I made through the upstairs window. The other deer had already walked back into the woods.




Got the final roll of wallpaper today, so hopefully we can get the guest bath done tomorrow. Stay tuned for more pictures!

Wow! What a transformation! That room looks so much bigger the way you've decorated it compared to the "other".
Can't wait to see the rest!
Have a wonderful day.

TERRY, IT LOOKS GREAT! I KNOW YOU ARE GLAD TO HAVE YOUR PARENTS THERE TO HELP. THE VIEW OUT YOUR BACK IS BREATHTAKING OF THE RIVER AND THE DEER ARE SO PRECIOUS. IT'S A GREAT HOUSE. MISS PAINTING WITH YOU.
