Farmhouse in the Dining area

Oh my, I really love the farmhouse look.  I had to just keep going into the dining area.

  I got started with the chalkboard.  I looked online for a saying I could change it to.  Found this one about the dinner table I liked. I know it could use a little tweeking but it is fine for now.

The shelf, I found at Rod Works and it fit the "farmhouse" look perfectly.

I loved these 'buckets" not sure what you call them. Anyway, I decided to use them as shelves.  I cut a piece of barn wood to fit in them and make a flat surface to put stuff on.

The little chalkboard was just to fill in an empty space.  I drew the chicken with a chalk pen. I know, it's not the best looking chicken but its the best I could do.

So fun to look back and then see it now.


Now I have plans for my table and chairs but that will be a project for the summer.  But so far, I love the new look.  It feels like home.
Thanks for stopping by.
