So that to-do list? The one that I have broken down into bite sized pieces? Yeah! It seems to be working. :)
Yesterday I finished off the last couple jobs I wanted to do in the dining room. And I am sticking a fork in it and calling it done.
So the last time I showed the dining room fully, it was green:
And then I hinted at the changes on instagram a few months back:
And this past week, I was able to make one more change I have been wanting to make. I emptied out the hutch and it looked like this (these next few pictures are from my iphone):
But the secret was it was actually black paper at the back:
Which was hiding this:
I hated the mirror back because it would reflect everything in the room and always looked cluttered to me. I didn’t mind the black but wanted a change and to lighten it up. And I have seen many nice black hutches with white inside so I bought white melamine painted hard board and removed the mirror and backing and replaced it to look like this:
I love how it looks and eventually will probably paint the full inside white as well but for now it is a nice and bright change.
Here is the dining room today:
I love how my tea cup collection stand out more now. And a couple other hidden treasures like one of my bells I kept from my childhood bell collection and a Royal Doulton doll that was my grandmother’s that she left me because it was named Janet.
I love it when the little changes you want really DO make the difference you hope they do.
