The time had come to eradicate all the brick/vine/grapes. I fell in love with the green wall color at Daisy Cottage . Luckily the generous Kim of Daisy Cottage so kindly shares the colors in her house! I knew that green was exactly what I wanted.
The other item I had been drooling over for months were these Waverly curtains from Target.So there it was, the inspiration for my dining room make over ...wall color and curtains.
I then painted the walls Daisy Cottage green, which I have to say I am in love with.
I took an old dresser from the Marine's room and painted it black.
Then I bought this little number on Craigslist...I love me some Craigslist. It is like a crack addiction.
The only thing missing was the curtains. Sure they were "affordable" at Target...but they were even MORE affordable when I found a pair on E-bay! The only thing was they were too short.
In honor of the Nester I of course performed some mistreatments of the window!
A little extra fabric and some dingleberry trim and I had curtains that were indeed long enough.
All is right with the world now, my dining room no longer has faux bricks.
