I was sitting at the dining room table painting on a vintage enamel coffee pot…it’s a gift for a friend. Anyways…as I was sitting there, I thought that I should share my dining room with all of you. It has a cottage farmhouse feel to it.
I recently put my firkin/pantry buckets back out in the room…had to put them up high out of reach from my grandson when he was little. For some reason, Peyton was fascinated with them and I was worried that he would drop and maybe break one…so up high on the book shelves in the living room they went for almost 2 years.
They are sitting on a little old chair that I found at a yard sale many years ago…right next to the china cupboard, which right now holds a lot of my white pitcher collection until my hubby gets the shelf back up in the kitchen.
On the other side of the quilt is the old ironing board…were I put my new apron that was a gift from a relative in Tennessee.
A small old ladder holds some dish towels…plus there is an old glass washboard that sits in a wood basket at the bottom of the ironing board.
On the opposite wall…that opens into the kitchen has this gathering of a rolling-pin shelf and a couple of framed prints on the left side.
On the right side of the opening to the kitchen is this peg rack that holds some of my handmade basket collection. The sun was shining in through the glass sliding doors and made the wall look pink, but it is really a soft beige/white color.
Also hanging up in the corner of the opening to the kitchen is an old farm milk scale.
Well…that is my dining room and I hope that you enjoyed seeing it.
Remember the vintage enamel coffee pot that I was painting on for a friend…here is a peek at what I painted on it. She has apples in her kitchen and she loves gingerbread men…so I’m hoping that she likes it.
Until next time……… ~Cindy
