We are all looking for ways to decorate our homes and not break the bank.I wanted to share some simple changes I made to my dining room just shopping my house and using some recent thrift shop finds.
It’s no secret if you know me then you know that I find most of my home decor including furniture at thrift shops.
This china was a recent thrift shop find and it works perfectly in here to add some color.
Just a bit of color is all that was needed to change this piece.
Another recent change I made to this room was adding a few pieces of furniture I already had on hand.
It’s always fun to shop your own house!
I already had this chair and was selling it at a vintage market show.But it did not sell.No worries I am actually glad it didn’t because it looks great in this spot.I found this chair at a thrift store and painted it with Annie Sloan chalk paint.It looks and feels leather.And is very comfortable too!
This credenza was in my studio.Since I am changing things in that room I no longer needed it there.I was looking for something to hold some extra dishes…oh yes I have plenty of those.And my extra napkins and table clothes I have plenty of those too!This was a great solution. I painted this a while ago with Miss Mustard Seeds milk paint.
That is my second French bottle rack.It is the same as the one in my kitchen.But I am only adding a few cups to this one.The French bottle rack was found at Decor Steals.
Sometimes you can find cool things in your own backyard.This was a birds nest someone was discarding.I saw the beauty in this and rescued it.Previously it was in my kitchen and now has a home here on this wire stand.
Adding some fresh flowers from your garden or from a field is a great way to freshen up a room.In the winter and cold months pine cones and twigs are great too.
This bunch of Queen Anne’s lace is growing in a field near our home.My daughter picked a handful to use in this ironstone pitcher.
A pretty tinted glass bottle is something that was found cheaply and adds just a bit of color.
So you see it is very easy to change a room.It does not have to involve moving furniture or painting.But changing a few accessories and even shopping your own home can bring new life to a home.
