Dining In

I posted about a dining room project that was slowly coming along. I got so tired of looking at it uncompleted, I finally bit the bullet and just finished it.

Here's the before...I forgot to take a true before...the sideboard was originally a dark brown that I had painted years ago, but like most things, I forgot about the pic until I already started painting. It fits the space in my dining room perfect, so I decided to make it work.

Here's the after...this will eventually hold most of my china and dishes and vintage linens, but this works until I have more time to dig them all out.

I painted it the same color as our kitchen cabinets...Sherwin Williams Creamy...added some distressing and changed out the hardware.

For the shelving, we built basic shelves with wooden brackets. Simple and provides the storage and display I need.

Hydrangeas make everything better...
