ta da....




So this summer, you may remember but I was on the hunt for chairs and then in the process of making the old into new to us. Well our journey is complete and we have finished the new and improved dining room in our home. It really is a work of art with punchy colors and character in every nook and cranny.

My husband, Brian, really is an artist at heart and hands. He has built from scratch a hutch and table. No plans, just sketches and ideas of his own. He has so much talent running through his veins. His father is extremely handy and talented with wood working so he grew up watching a master as an apprentice himself. Holding tools and getting up close and personal with jobs around the house have made him the great success he is today! Brian would never call himself an artist, but today I announce that he is an artist and craftsman for all to see his work!

He used old barn beams from a fallen barn next to his parents' house in Summitville, NY. He reworked the wood and built this old world-new table. It will get its first use on this Thursday, Thanksgiving, my favorite holiday. I love the warmth of family and food combined with a dash of laughter and watching our family favorite holiday movie, "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation." It is sure to be another great success as we sit and dine upon these great new additions to our home.

The hutch he built earlier this year from newer wood but really has a great vintage feel to it with the chicken wire in the doors and hammered hardware. 

Brian has outdone himself and our dining room is shining with pride with its new accessories!

I hope everyone enjoys their Thanksgiving and laughs and eats a little too much!

Be Well and Enjoy!
