Presto Chango...

I hope you enjoy my Living and Dining rooms.

That, my friends, is the most comfortable chair, EVER!!  I fall asleep in it quite often!

I love this little haunted house.  I found it at Tuesday Morning.  You can find the most incredible stuff there!

When I bought this buffet about 4 years ago, it had a pretty bad distressed white paint job on it.  I asked my sweetheart of a friend, Jan, to help me strip it, which by the way is work, but so much fun to see it bubble up and then scrape it away!  Then I restained it.  It turned out fairly well and I am very happy with it!  It goes well with my $150 table and chairs steal I found at a flea market!  Oh yeah, I said that right!  Don't you know I snatched it right up!!!

Can you see it?  Does something look different?  I told you I was crazy, remember?  I moved that table out and put my old wicker chair in it's place.  Then to balance out the wall, or try to balance out the wall, I put an old table for some height.  I think it works much better than what I had.  What do you think?

Here is a better look at that table.  When I bought it the leaf was missing.  But, I didn't mind, because the price was so amazing!  When I got it home and my man was helping unload it, he said "What is this thing underneath?"  He pulled the table apart, and I swear I heard angels singing somewhere, because up pops on a mechanical lever, the leaf to the table!!  Needless to say, I was very pleased with myself that day!!

I'll try to get the entryway up for you tomorrow.  Hope you enjoyed the tour!
