My Dining Room

Posted by on Jul 7, 2013 in dining room | 28 comments

So the other day,

I was trying to avoid doing the laundry,

so I started doing a little rearranging. . .

which led to a little dusting. . .

which led to removing every decorative accessory,

from every flat surface,

in my entire downstairs.

Crazy how that happens?!

My sweet family just smiled. . .

And, operated around my collection of picture frames,

My Dining Room @ DaisyMaeBelle

piles of dishes,

My Dining Room @ DaisyMaeBelle

oodles of birds,

My Dining Room @ DaisyMaeBelle

and heaps of brass.

I am happy to report,

My Dining Room @ DaisyMaeBelle

that every last accessory

My Dining Room @ DaisyMaeBelle

is in its new home,

My Dining Room @ DaisyMaeBelle

on a freshly dusted surface.

As for the laundry,

there is always tomorrow!

Life to the full!

  3. love the table with burlap skirt.. how did you make it?/ i so want to do something with the table i am using as a desk.

  4. And I am happy to report that it is beautiful! Everything you touch looks wonderful.

    So glad to see a picture of you over there on the side. It’s nice to put a pretty face with the home. πŸ™‚

  5. it looks beautiful, melissa! i love that mirror so much! πŸ™‚

  6. hey hey, I agree, cleaning is booooorrringgggg without a little rearranging! That’s what makes it fun!

  7. Must admit this happens in my house all the time…and as for the laundry – it will still be waiting for you when your done! Looks Great!

  8. What a a fun dining room so full of character! Would love it if you came by and shared it at Share It One More Time at One More Time Events. Hope to see you there!.. Tammy

  9. I have a distinct yen for your mirror over that table. Anytime you don’t want it anymore put me on the list for buyers. I have a feeling there will be a few others wanting it. Maybe you’ll have to take numbers.
    Love how you put together your tablescapes, arrange your pretties in your home.
    Good idea to take it all down, let it sit (for a couple days for me) then put things up again. It’s only July and I’m already thinking of changing out my summer arrangements for other summier pretties. Are we crazy making more work for ourselves? Yeah think so cause it sure does make more.
    Happy Summer

  10. The dining room looks great. I always end up not doing the laundry because I get involved in something else and it will be there tomorrow waiting for you. Your not alone.

  11. Wow- It looks great…really great! I know how it is-you start by moving one thing and by the time you are done the whole house has been rearranged! xo Diana

  12. It looks wonderful, Melissa! It’s always a good feeling when you do a good clean and move things around. I know it’s not much, but it makes me feel good to look at those areas afterward.

  13. Your dining room is beautiful! My favorite thing is the fabric on the table. It’s soft and pretty and makes everything stand out on that table. Your arrangements on your hutch (which I also love) are perfect and I love all your collections.

  14. Such pretty vignettes! The ONLY reason I dust is to rearrange my stuff πŸ™‚

  15. I love it! That little door with the bird is also precious… what a neat idea!
    Hugs and enjoy your week!

  16. Very pretty Mellisa.
    Luv the vintage door.
    Hugs, Gee

  19. So cute! Love the neutral colors and the bird theme you have going on. It looks so welcoming!

  20. Just love everything Melissa! You create such beautiful vignettes.

  21. Rearranging is a mind game, isn’t it? It usually ends with happy changes though and clean surfaces. That’s another plus on top of the pretty new look!

  22. So charming, just says WELCOME!
    Hope you’ll hop over and share at Amaze Me Monday!

  23. What a beautiful vignette! You put everything together in such a charming way. Funny how that whole dusting thing works, isn’t it? Rearranging dΓ©cor is so much more fun that dusting and laundry : )
