Dining Room / Farmer's Market Flowers

Wednesday, May 19, 2010

I volunteered at the downtown Memphis Farmer's Market this past Saturday morning.

Not only did I get to meet several local farmers/vendors (and a free t-shirt!), but I also walked away with a $5 wildflower bouquet we've been enjoying all week.

Volunteering or shopping, it's a truly WONDERFUL way to spend your Saturday morning if you are so inclined. You can sign up to get on their volunteer list through the website.

Divided in three different spots:

Kitchen table [in my newly-painted yellow kitchen...that's another post, though]:

Kitchen window:

Dining Room table:

[those coke can-shaped vases were the hostess gifts at Hayley's baby shower. LOVE them!]

Sorry about the junk on the table. It'll magically disappear over the next few pics....

Not one to leave you hanging [if you're still reading]... here's a little before-and-after action of the ole dining room.

Remember the is-it-plum-is-it-grey-is-it-brown colored dining room? I DO.

[there's that washer/dryer again...]

Well, this room was the very first thing we painted in this house [with much-appreciated help!]. I could not WAIT to affect some change in this room. And here we go.

Disclaimer: By no means do I consider this room "finished"--nothing is hung on the walls, there are still boxes everywhere, no window treatments, light fixture not exactly right, blah blah blah. But still. Progress?


In Camouflage by Benjamin Moore. And I found that cheery tablecloth at Target (!)

Whew! So much lighter and open-feeling, right? Acceptable start?

Still haven't unpacked my suitcases. Ha.

    I LOVE the green color in the room over from the (old) plum room. Are you keeping that? I'd love to know what color it is.

  4. It is looking good! Love the Target table cloth. Can't wait to come by and see the finished product.
