Rhoda over at Southern Hospitality is having a party today. Hope you all head over there and join in. I know so many of us have created some very lovely homes for our family and friends by using recycled items. Lets all join in and share our finds, we know that it takes an eye for beauty and a desire to create comfort for our families and God's grace more than a lot of money to create a beautiful home. This three tiered table works well to keep the blue and white pitchers that we use a lot easily assessable in the dining room. I often keep an eye out for narrow little shelves that you can pick up for very little because they fit into all kinds of small spaces and are a good way to display things that you use on a regular basis. It is much easier to use things that might add a touch of beauty to your table if they are not shoved into a dark cupboard.
This old, old, worn out oriental rug is another one of my favorite things. It was rolled up in the corner of a junk shop when I stumbled upon it. Ralph Lauren uses a lot of well worn rugs in his work so when I found this big 9' X 12' rug with all the colors that are in our house I decided to bring it home. Well, after airing it out and trying to clean it the best I could it ended up in the dining room and has been useful for more than 10 years. One of the added benefits of these old rugs is that it hides all the little scraps of anything that may end up on the floor until you get around to sweeping them up.
This is one of a pair of little end table that I picked up for Summerhill several years ago. Their small size and pretty detail make them valuable to use as pull up tables where ever you need a surface to plop something down on. Kind of like a refined TV tray ~
Thanks for stopping by Life At Home this morning. I hope you had a good time here at the party.
