I know you all have seen
my Kitchen and Hearth Room
a million times!
When we decided to list the house
I decided it was time
to make some big changes.
I needed the room to look as large
and spacious as possible for potential buyers!
Can you see the changes?
I took away the long farmhouse table
and the black dish cupboard
and replaced them with this
glass table and bench.
It was actually a lot of
trial and error one weeknight.
The light fixture was hung
in an awkward location
and was never centered
when the farmhouse table sat here.
Mr. Beaux was convinced
that if we put the round glass table here
and centered it,
that there would be too much space
left in the corner of the room.
We tried a lot of different combinations
before he finally agreed
to help me move in the round glass table.
But look, it seems as if it as always been here!
And it makes the room look so much larger.
I do so love this kitchen!
I am going to miss it for sure!
I tried to keep everything pretty simple for staging.
I had fabric for pillows all ready to sew
but I ran out of time before pictures.
So I ran over to Stein Mart
the night before and found
some that would do for the moment.
Be still my heart!
Miss Kim from Savvy Southern Style
Instagramed that Pottery Barn
was having a sale on pillow covers.
I RAN over there
and found these wonderfully perfect pillows!
Look at these gorgeous pillows!
And they were less expensive
than the "These will do" pillows!
I'm still working on
the pillow arrangement for the bench.
I will have to switch out these fall pillows
for something more wintery.
And even though I am taking all of
the Stein Mart pillows back
I am keeping the cute red and white
grain sack place mats
that I found during my late night shopping spree!
Won't they look too cute for Christmas?
My sconces that I ordered finally came in....
And they were the WRONG ones!
Of course, it was the day before pictures
so I reluctantly agreed to take them
and hang them anyway!
It isn't that I hate them,
it's just not what I ordered.
At the lighting shop where I bought them
they order the lights and then
customize them themselves.
They customize this particular light two ways,
with the glass as you see here
and with a candle slip
which is the way that I ordered it.
Something like this...
I had adorable black shades all ready
to place on the top too!
But, sometimes you just have to roll with it, right!!!
I'll show you more of the listing pictures
because they just do such a great job.
And, my house may never be this clean again!
Now back to cleaning out closets!
Until Next Time,
