I was given the privilege of redesigning my
Mother-in-Love's Master Bedroom,
click here to see it.
She then thought she might like her Dining Room re-done, too.
So, because I love her,
and because I really like befores and afters,
and shopping with someone else's redecorating money,
I obliged her in her Dining Room, too!
JoAnn, who lives in Pennsylvania,
has a lot of beautiful antique glassware and collectibles.
But, there was too much in this room to actually see and enjoy any of it.
So, the corner piece below went into her Music Room.
The awesome leaded stained-glass cabinet
that was on the other side of the room
was moved into its place.
The glassware was edited,
and only red and clear pieces were returned to the cabinet.
The corner cabinet [below] which held an assortment of tea sets,
now displays her formal Lenox china.
A marble-topped bureau was brought in from another space
and now conveniently holds candles, place mats and napkins.
It also serves as the buffet for tea time or dinner parties.
a new round rug from TJMaxx and More
and the paint: Rembrandt Ruby, from Sherwin Williams.
It was a lot of work and three coats of paint
[one primer, two top coats of red],
but she was thrilled, and I was happy that she was thrilled.
Merry Christmas, JoAnn!
You can always give without loving,
but you can never love without giving.
