I put my whole set for sale on eBay and it quickly sold to a lovely family from PA.
With an empty dining room and money in hand, I was ready to shop.
I found a jelly cupboard and and beautiful corner cabinet at my favorite antique store.
My husband bought this old pie safe from a good friend for only $100.00! He had to remove the top gray coat of paint and make some repairs. I love the old milk paint that was underneath.
This bucket bench was sitting in our basement for years and years. I never knew what it was until I saw a similar one for over a thousand dollars at the shop where we bought the two cabinets. My husband cleaned it up and here it is! It's so primitive and crude, just how I like about it.
Last but not least, I searched high and low for a farm table. Naturally, the one that suited me best was way out of my budget. I kept looking, and looking. Finally my Husband said he was going to make one for me. I was very skeptical. He had a very old walnut table base that he said he wanted to use. He neede to extend it, and raise the legs a bit. He added a top made from wood cut down here on our farm. (Himalayan Pine)
I'm very pleased with it. We already had the antique chairs. The rug is new.
What a difference from the all OAK dining room. I can't wait to decorate for Christmas! LOL...
Thanks for taking my new/old dining room tour.
