Remember this sad space? Notice the hodge-podge of stuffs on the table, the Rock Band drums in the corner of the room, the lack of space to walk around, and most of all the absolute color void. Pitiful. Pathetic.
Oh, I can breathe! Isn't it wonderful what a few yards of robin's egg blue can do? I still haven't gotten that puzzle framed, though. It will eventually be transferred off the table onto the wall. It's a Matisse. The lovely, cheerful flowers are courtesy of my wonderful husband, just because. We also turned the table diagonally and it created more walking room and, I think, makes the room look a little bigger.
Here are close-ups of the chairs:
At the head of foot of the table I put a light blue fabric with darker blue Fleur-type swirlies. (I'm so descriptive, I know!)
And on the sides is a solid of the same color, but with a woven texture to it. Keepin' it simple and classy, Virginia Beach.
OK, now to find a place to put all the stuff I took out of the dining room!
