House vs Home

I am in full blown decorating mode. Today I went bananas with chalk board paint.

Also check out some new blogs I found...I posted links on the sidebar.

I have always loved the antique couch from Uncle Bobby that I had re-covered but never found the right place for it. I also have always wanted a french country breakfast nooke, so,
tonight I combined the two.
I moved the couch to the kitchen table and put it up against the red wall..the minute I did that...I was in LOVE!
I still need some antique claw feet to raise the couch up a few inches to sit perfectly at the table, but I love it already, I can see many comfortable conversations around this table now.

I also am starting a much larger project...cost so far for all weekend projects....$0 !

Thanks to Tracy for the donation of her unused paint...I am on my way to a free makeover!

Here are some hints.

More to come when complete!
