Redecorating B'day Gift Cont'd - Dining Room

 BEFORE (above picture)
 Before I started the redecorating I asked Jan to look through her house and see if there was anything she wanted to keep the way it was. She decided she wanted to keep the formal dining room with the theme of India. Her late husband was from India and she has many items from India she likes to display.

I only made a few small changes such as from the picture above,
I removed the basket of greenery on the left,
and a dark basket and plate on the right.

AFTER is below:

This vignette was over the chest shown below:
 I removed the tapestry lady above and
replaced it with:


That rectangle metal plaque had been on another wall here:
A little crowded on the narrow wall 
BEFORE (above.)

I left the small wall hanging.

The tapestry lady was moved to another room.
Next we brought in a painting of an Indian lady
that was perfect for the dining room corner:

I didn't get a good BEFORE picture of
the dining room:

Table AFTER:

We draped a small tablecloth from India 
diagonally across the dining table with the
centerpiece of a brass urn and a picture of 
the Taj Mahal 

 I also didn't get a before picture of this tea cart,
it had tea cups on top. I replaced them
with a few antique items from India:


Finished vignette, up close:
We are beginning to make a lot of progress
on the main rooms of the house,
A few small additions are holding us up to
being finished and photographed, but that will come soon!

The bedrooms and baths will be last.
Stay tuned for lots more!
