Two new things.

1. My grandmother’s dining table is now officially out of storage and in my dining room.

2. My stencil arrived in the mail last week!

So I’m really hoping to start my stenciling project tonight (wish me luck!). Other things that need to happen in this dining room before I will be satisfied:

1. A rug to cover up the unsightly floor stains. We would like to eventually refinish the hardwoods throughout the entire house, but that is a LONG way away.

2. Dining room chairs. I’ve got my eye on six of these bad boys, which should make a nice modern contrast to the vintage table.

3. Curtains and blinds for the window.

4. White floating shelves to hang on the stenciled wall. I’ll be using these shelves from a previous DIY project and filling them with glassware, which is currently piled on the floor.

5.  And lastly, my piano is yearnin’ for a little stylin’. We’re planning to hang a mirror above it, but I haven’t decided how to style the piano itself. A lamp? My white porcelain giraffe? Both? The possibilities are endless!
