Let's Be Honest.

Good morning lovelies. The next room on the home tour should be the dining room. But that's just not going to happen today.

The main ingredient missing in the room are dining room chairs. I have four sitting there (remember this post) and I have the fabric to reupholster them in, but a week ago when I attempted to start the job of recovering them, it didn't go so well. Let's just say after the first round: Chairs-1 Heidi-0.
(Here's a pic from a pre-Thanksgiving feast. Notice the blue ikat fabric I had been considering resting over the chairs.)

(The coloring on this one is more true to life.)

(See the black buffet behind the table....)
(It went from this...)

( this!)

I found the dresser at the a garage sale this summer for $10. It got two coats of black paint I had, and a coat of polyurethane to give it that shine.

One last beauty before you go...
dinner last night in honor of Mardi Gras, and the night that Jason and I met, face-painted and all.

Don't forget to enter the giveaway. Only two days left!


  1. I hope you figure out the chair soon. They'll be great with your revamped buffet!

  2. Check out some Youtube videos that's how I learned more about upholstering. If you feel you cant do it and you spent a lot of mula on that fabric maybe it's time you throw in the towel and just hire an upholsterer. Good luck! Upholstering can be a bit trickier than it looks.
