I was a busy lady this weekend. I got some serious DIY fever! Love it when that happens. My dining room buffet was becoming such an eye sore to me, it just wasn't special. I really love the look of two toned furniture that's been popping up lately, and figured this is exactly what my sad little buffet needed.
Here's the before and after:
I added new tortoise knobs to make that gray really pop. Yeah it's gray, it just doesn't show in these pictures.
I have been complaining for two years about not having outlets in the dining room (its an old home). I love the look a few lamps give to a dining room. Well, when I moved the buffet away from the wall, low and behold, there was an OUTLET! Let me tell, I never knew an outlet could make someone so happy! How did I not see it? I really think God might have put it there!
I had an old emerald green lamp I bought from Goodwill, so I gave it some fresh blue paint (that ties the blue from the living room rug into the dining room).
I love the little feet on this guy.
Oh, and thats not all I did this weekend! I'm not going to show it all at once, I don't want to overwhelm you with my amazingness!
(That's a joke.)
Have any of you noticed two toned furniture lately, do you have great links that you'd like to share?
