Halloween Table

Happy Halloween Everyone!

Yesterday I had lots of fun dressing the table for Halloween. As usual, I tried to use items I mostly own, but what sparked that first thought of a Halloween table was this paper runner I found at the clearance section at Target for only 3 bucks.

Beautiful Home Tour -1

The weekend was so beautiful I spent most part of it outdoors enjoying the nice temperatures. I also made plans with my SIL to go visit some model homes.

How the Breakfast Room has Evolved

I love to look at pictures of before and afters, I also love to see how a room has changed or evolved as time passes.

Halloween Recycled Candy Containers

Woohoo, I've been busy sanding and painting the table and chairs I showed you on my last post. Thanks so much for all your kind comments and advice on how to remove all the layers or varnish and lacquer from the old table. I'm almost ready to begin working on that table.

Awesome Great Finds

Hi everyone!
A couple weeks ago I scored big time on Craiglist. A nice pedestal table, two shelves and four of these beautiful chairs for free.
Most of them are OK, some scuffs here and there and the signs of good use is what they show.
