The dinning room re-do part one!
First some before pictures…
I saw this idea in the Lowes idea book,and I just thought it would be a great thing to do in our dinning room !http://http://www.lowescreativeideas.com/idea-library/projects/Get_Organized_0709.aspx
We have little or no storage in the house. We have a full basement but ,it is not a good place to put things that you want to get to again.
So here are the the during pictures…
Steve is a great contractor! My wish is his command!! (snicker)
These lovely shelves will hold some of my favorite books, also a good place for plants.
It looks good set up doesn’t it?
If you think they looked good then ,lets see how they look painted!!
See I do help with the projects, this is proof!
It’s hard work but somebody has to do it!
These look great don’t they? Think of all the things I can hide away! But….
We aren't done yet! Next , we will add bead board and a plate rack and red paint!!! Stay tuned …. next month for the finished room just in time for Thanksgiving!
Check out our new china hutch!! It was a steal ! And already re-finished! Steve was really glad about that!
