The Dining Room Redo


I have been working on redecorating my dining room and living room so I thought I would share a few pictures of the dining room so far...the colors as you can tell are lime green and red...

thrift store candle holders and dollar tree place mat

a little owl sun catcher that I got a yard sale for .25
one of my favorite thrift store finds this hutch
it holds my Pyrex dishes, tupperware from my childhood, thrift store finds and a few little owls!


I hoped you enjoyed a little glimpse of my redo I am still working on it but I am loving the results the living room is aqua and red love it! Stay tuned more to share!

I have been in a bad mood all day so I plan on getting myself in a good mood with a trip to the library, finish some projects and maybe a walk (if I don't freeze).

Happy Hump Day!

Hugs and Love

Carrie

Your home always looks so cozy and inviting. I love the redo. Your Pyrex collection takes me back to my childhood. My Grandma had the gold ones. =)

Wishing you and your family a Happy New Year!

I love the green and the red! Those seem to be the "hip" new colors together!

Your thrift store finds are all great - the dishes take me down memory lane - all so cute!
