I previously discussed wanting to paint the back wall of the built-in shelving in the dining room so that my collection of white dishes (mostly milk glass) would really pop. Here’s the shelves in their all-white glory:
I originally thought I'd paint the back wall the same light beige as the kitchen but I didn’t like it when I put a few brush strokes of that color on the wall. I then decided that it would be fun to use an unexpected color so I combined the blue from my bedroom with some white (2:1) to get a customized color that I adore.
I love this basket. It is real silver and was badly tarnished. I bought a container of silver cream from ACE Hardware and polished it right up. Not bad for $1.50! The basket on the bottom shelf is a new purchase as well from Michael’s ($10 – they had 40% off all baskets this past week) that holds my dining room linens.
This was part 1 of my dining room revamp from this weekend. I actually changed a few things in this room since I was bored and a little tired of the old look. Stay tuned for the other changes!
