More Lucketts/More Dining Room
Well, I am in sunny (and unbearably hot and humid) Orlando, Florida to visit my parents with my two boys. I made sure to snap a lot of photos of my house and some projects before I left, so I would have plenty to share with you this week.
First of all, a quick note. The winner of the Acorn Apron dress form pillow is Susan L. from It’s the things that make you go mmmmm. Congrats!
I couldn’t help but make some purchases when I was at Lucketts and I showed most of them to you already. Some of them I am selling and others I bought with my birthday money to use in my own home. The wire commercial bread basket I purchased for $10 is now sitting under my ironstone tureen and platter that I found in my grandparent’s attic.
It just adds a little bit of texture and makes a centerpiece that is expected and little boring much more interesting to the eye.
I love the contrast of the rusty wire against the dark table and the smooth ironstone.
I’ve teased you with some glass paneled doors I purchased at Lucketts as well. I wish I had about three pair of these. There are so many places I could hang these, but they looked the best in my dining room.
I hung them on either side of an arched doorway that leads to the original kitchen in our 1940’s home. It is currently a home office…just waiting for built-ins.
I love their simplicity, the antique wavy glass, and the original hardware.
I hung a small boxwood wreath made out of bunches I purchased at 50% off from Hobby Lobby and hung from hemp twine. I made them by clipping off “branches”, twisting them into a wreath, and securing them together with florist wire. One bunch made one small wreath.
