Do you want to know the absolute best car to power shop for an entire house with? A two seater mini cooper. Yep, this is what my mom and I were working with…I mean, why take a truck when you could play your own personal game of Tetris with throw pillows and accessories?
Imagine a clown car, but instead of dozens of clowns popping out, end tables, artwork and throw pillow after throw pillow. I actually have no idea how we even made it home and we definitely got a few looks from some construction dudes in the Lowe’s parking lot. Whatever, we made it work!
Today the tour continues with the formal dining room and man was this room formal. The light fixture in here was made out of camel heads? My daughter however loved it and asked me if she could have it for her room at the new house…that would be a no…
I have to give credit to my mom for this room she had this table set and light fixture hanging up in here already when I got down there. My dad and his friend also pulled down all the chair railing and put up the more casual bead board instead.
Oh, and full props to my non-crafty mom, who channeled her inner Martha for these sea glass bottles. She grabbed a bunch of these bottles at a flea market and hit them with that new sea glass spray paint. Have you seen that stuff? I hadn’t tried it before, but they turned out so cool!
You may notice the odd window placement in here, if you are OCD about symmetry like I am it may make your eye twitch a bit.
We tried to address the offset thing with this tall shelving unit in the corner. Which I think helped solve the situation a bit.
We also brought in some colorful prints and another round basket to mimic the round light fixture and ground the table.
It turned out so pretty in here!
