New Year New Changes Sneak Peak

Well Christmas is over and since I decorate way before Thanksgiving I am ready to see some of my decor come down after Christmas.  Don't you just hate that dull feeling in the rooms after all the Christmas pretty comes down?!

It is motivating me to do some painting and change ups in the Dining Room.

This was my Christmas Dining room.  All has been taken down and packed away.

Everything and I mean everything came down in the dining room and is getting ready for  new paint and new look.

My dining room is entertainment central when we all gather together.  So this room is used a lot at holidays and everyday.  So after the Christmas came down it felt right to give this room a fresh coat of paint.

This was where the vintage mantel and windows hung.  They are down for the paint and not sure if they will go back up in this space.  I will have to see after we paint what will go back into this room.

The sun is shining and it is almost 60 degrees here so I am taking full advantage of getting the Christmas decor down and we don't have to trek through snow to get to the storage shed to put it all away.

We are having more of a Spring  time than Christmas.  So maybe that is where I am getting the "Spring Cleaning Bug" early and the energy to do some change ups.

Plus I have Terry home for a week so I am totally taking advantage of that man and his tools lol!

Stay tuned to see how my new dining room will look.  I am going for cottage gray and white to blend with my kitchen.  Hope it comes out like I have it visioned in my head!!!

I am enjoying these next few weeks of time off to do fun things with my family and start a few new "fresh ups" for the new year.

See you soon with some results of this dining room refresher.
