One of the first "big" furniture purchases I ever made was the Spanish wood dining table with benches in this picture. It was wonderful and we had some great parties centered around it, but last year I decided to re-decorate my home and this room was the first to be redone.
To see how the room looks now, read more.
Many of my "first" purchases (when I wasn't quite sure of my style yet) were sold and made room for pieces more decidedly "me." My home is now a wonderful mix of vintage (a new love!) and brand new purchases. I have to walk through this room every day to get to my kitchen, and I have to say . . . it makes me smile!
The buffet, lamps, chandelier and black chair (in the second pic) are vintage. The table and chairs are new. The mirror and painting I already had. Wish list: a beautiful rug!
