Dining room update~

We are a few days into our dining room make over project and I can feel the excitement beginning to build knowing that the look I am after is achievable.  We've stripped the high gloss finish off of the table to reveal beautiful wood.  After we return from Vegas we will add a low sheen varnish for protection.  

As you can see in the photo, the chairs are now painted.  We used a spray primer on the chairs and it worked like a charm.  We then sprayed the chairs Heirloom white. 

There is still much to do, so we will keep working and I will update as we continue along!

Just a little funny ~

I asked Bella if she liked the chairs? She wrinkling up her forehead and said " Not really.  Well, I guess we could put pillows on the floor so we don't get hurt when we fall through" 

Oh how she makes me smile and keeps me on my toes!

In a few hours  Vito and I will be on our way to ~

I can not wait to see this view~

Last year we began a tradition for our first night in Vegas~ we ride to the top of the Stratosphere, watch the sun set behind the mountains and watch the lights come up on the strip.  It is a fun romantic beginning to what is sure to be a wonderful trip.  

Have a fabulous week! Catch up with y'all soon!

Have a wonderful time in Vegas! We are supposed to be out there the weekend before Christmas, and I can hardly wait.

Your dining room is shaping up! Bella is rather astute about those chairs, though. You'd better do something about that. ;-)
