Hello Spring! A Simple Refresh in the Dining Room
Spring seems to be a little elusive this year – perhaps a bit shy! Or Winter wants to keep its grip on us! But, it just can’t! There are signs of Spring everywhere – despite the strong, chilly winds!
I want to say, ‘Hello Spring’! Welcome!
Today, I’m sharing a simple refresh I did for our dining room. In just a few days now my first granddaughter is to be born. My daughter and her husband have been on a mission to transform and refresh their home…
Then, I thought, wait! I’m going to be with them…so, I began my own nesting and preparing.

Inside, I wanted to keep it simple – to bring a little of the new greens and small flowers – at least for the Dining Room!
I dried some Eucalyptus – both kinds – I love the look of seeded Eucalyptus. For the centerpiece I used two things I found at The Country Living Fair – this pedestal and two rail spindles I’ve used as candlesticks. I have two more on the piano.
My sister found this table that I painted a while back – it’s perfect for a tea/coffee setting.
As you can see, I’ve found some half-shutters for the window seat! I am so excited! I found them at The Habitat Restore nearby. Actually, I found enough for this window seat and the one in our bedroom…I have to make a frame for both to hang them on the windows –
I love this rather than shades – I didn’t want to cover the beauty of these old windows, but the Western sun plays havoc on my guests as the sun sets! I had to do something!
A few flowers here and there…I even switched the chairs around – I’ll probably paint the dark blue chairs…they seem a bit too dark for the whole of the rooms to me. What do yo think?
It’s lighter, it’s refreshed…and now I need to move onto other rooms. Our Master bedroom still has it’s Winter decor…it’s been too cold to bring out the lighter, Spring comforter…but, soon! One thing I’m sure of Spring is coming!
