Hello, dear friends. I hope that you are enjoying your weekend. I have a feeling that my Chicago friends are ecstatic for their beloved Cubbies.
A few weeks ago, I did a post on Sista's kitchen renovation. Today I have another treat for you from her picturesque home in Connecticut.
Drum roll, please.
I present Sista's dining room.
Sista has been one busy little bee. She renovated her dining room a few months ago. It used to be quite formal. The walls were covered in red damask wallpaper, she had a french mahogany table, french chairs, gold mirror, and chandelier - so this is quite a change. Her goal was to create a less formal dining room that would not only compliment her renovated kitchen but be more inviting for casual family members.
Believe it or not, Sista's #2 Son made this beautiful farm table for her from reclaimed wood. She found the bench and Windsor chairs at local flea markets and painted them all to match.
The dining room is one of my favorite rooms in Sista's Connecticut house because of its charming fireplace. Part of the renovation process included painting the fireplace. I thought I really liked it before, but the black is stunning.
Thank you, dear Sista, for sharing your dazzling dining room with us. Please keep on renovating so that I have something to write about in my blog and I don't have to resort to telling all your dirty secrets.
Until next time...
