Placed the two drawers, upside down on the Buffet Table, and added a bench I painted and stained, made from the wood we took off our walls, place the bench underneath for extra seating or to hold a few basket or trays. I added a board, in the middle of two drawers to attach the two drawers together to make a hutch type shelf, and added a board in the middle of each drawer for shelves. I also added a small piece of wood to hold in my plates on the shelves.
View of dishes in the top of the Buffet, and the plate rack I made above to hold chargers, and platters. I got six more of the French black and white plates added those behind the bowls I got from the Valentine’s Auction I went to. Inside the shelves are my husband’s Grandmother’s everyday dishes.
This is my total make over using different patterns of white dishes. You may notice the trim is not up yet, but it not stopping me from putting all my things together. Yes, the ceilings are all wood as are the floors. My husband is sheet rocking most of our home, but I get to keep a few rooms with the wood walls. I want to keep my ceiling wood. The tray underneath the bench I bought at the annual garage sale for $5.00, the baskets were $1.00 each.
Table setting view with my little sun porch, or will it be a butler’s pantry? All the chairs, were bought at garage sale for $4.00 each. My Mother’s table, the bench bought from a old church for $10.00, Which my husband has cut down the bench, and still needs to add back the other arm. Then I shall cover all the seats in blue and white toile. My rug was a gift from my sister, Doris.
Place setting with blue chargers, I have set of twelve of the blue chargers, I bought from a thrift shop in Georgia. The blue stemware bought in South Carolina.
Napkin and napkin rings from a garage sale.
Flatware bought many years ago. The floral dinner plate, I bought for 25 cents each from a garage sale. I had planned on using them in a flower bed, but they made it to the table instead!
My centerpiece is a basket with silk periwinkle blue rose petals, I glued on to cover the basket. I used this basket as a rice girl basket in my daughter, Jennifer’s Wedding. To use as my centerpiece, on one side of the basket I added a bouquet of hydrangeas, on the other side I made a bird nest out of Spanish moss, my daughter Suzette picked from a tree. Added a few birds I got from Dollar Tree for four for a dollar.
Simple Centerpiece with candle holders from a thrift shop.
How do you like my silk petal covered basket?
View of my new made over Buffet and plate rack.
In the corner is a iron and wicker corner shelf, cost $1.00 at garage sale. The wine chalk board was $3.00. You can see a peak of my chandelier that getting silver leafed at this moment.
