When I recently posted some pictures of our dining room, I received a lot of questions about sources, paint colors, etc, so I decided to address them here rather than in the comments in case anyone else was interested.
If you're not it's ok.
I'm just trying to be informative.
It's my goal in life.
So here it is...More information that you ever wanted about our dining room.
The dining table is from Scott's Antique Market in Atlanta, GA. I can't remember the vendor's name, but I will find them next time I'm there. They had some amazing deals on big pieces of furniture.
The table and the bench came together.
The chairs came from Sunday School rooms in the church I work at.
I didn't steal them.
I don't steal from churches.
They were trying to get rid of them and I told them I could help them out.
I'm generous like that.
You already know about the "Big A"
The frames on the wall came from Ikea, Micheal's, and Wal-Mart.
Where pictures for these frames will come from is yet to be determined.
My dimmer light switch is from 1978.
I explained how I made my pennant light and where I got my materials in my original dining room post, if you want to go back and check it out.
The upholstered chairs were Nana's and were headed to the dumpster. I saved their lives.
The slipcover fabric is duck cloth from Wal-Mart and I desperately hope that they are still selling it by the time I get around to finishing the other slipcover.
The paint color is "Shaker Beige" by Benjamin Moore.
The trim in every part of the house is "Bright White", also by Benjamin Moore.
I am fiercely loyal to Benjamin Moore...one day I'll tell you all about it.
Several people have asked about our floors, and I'm sorry to say that I don't really know much about them. They are heart of pine and they are very old. I have no idea what type of finish is on them or anything like that. They came with the house and we accept them with their scratches and paint splotches. We are refinishing all the hardwoods upstairs, but we left well-enough alone down here.
Ok, friends that's it.
Please always feel free to ask where something in a post came from...I love to talk sources.
Believe me, if I were at your house, I'd be asking you to spill the beans about your stuff.
