Chicken Little Opened the Rug



 And it was perfect!!!
Why do I worry so much? 
Heather from Love Your Space  read my mind in her comment when she said she does the same thing because she is afraid she is going to jinx herself. That is exactly what I was thinking!! The longer I wait to open the rug, the better it will be. And guess what? It worked!! I LOVE it!!
Interested? It is the Stockholm Rand Rug from Ikea.



Standing in the kitchen looking into dining room.
And don't let the country cousin chairs scare you. They are old kitchen chairs that have been filling in until I decide what to get: Mod or French. 
But now don't you see how fabulous the blue velvet will be??!!
And the walls will be gray...so much to do, so little time and money.




This was my sad dining room before we started the renovation. In addition to the new kitchen we took down or moved 3 walls. The wall with the plates...



Gone!! It has totally changed the feel of my house. It now feels so open and bright. I'm also getting a new chandelier, but we can save that for another day. Today is all about the rug.


So...what do you think??

  13. It looks really great! I vote french for the chairs, would be a nice mix. Can't wait to see the blue velvet too, its going to look great! And I love those cabinets with the mirror peaking in. Is that your kitchen? It's wonderful!
