What’s happening?

I’ve been making progress on my dining room; I had my new chandelier installed yesterday.

I’ve made slip covers for my dining chairs
Found a fantastic fabric to cover my bench. The green is scrumptious and spring like (come on spring).

There is still lots to do; paint the bench, paint and stain the table, make cushions. All of which has to wait while I get the basement ready for the 1st of April.

Of course I’ve had some time for Junkin’ :)
I bought two panels of Martha Stewart lined drapes and two panels of Nate Berkus’ chocolate brow, linen panels. All four panels for $45.
I had to do some rearranging in my bedroom to accommodate the craft supplies which I moved to my closet.
The dresser was moved in to my room and therefore I had to move my ironing board too. It’s a little tight, so I’m considering downsizing to a queen sized bed, from a king. I’m one of those people that irons as needed, so I have to keep my ironing board out.

  4. Everything looks fabulous! I love the bench fabric and I am rooting for Spring right along with you! I would love to keep my ironing board out, but it's an unfortunate looking thing so it stays folded up in the closet. Yours looks stylish!
