cook books

I decided to add my blue/green cookbooks to one end of my bench. Thought I'd share.

I suggested to my parents that they get the below laptop table from IKEA for my hubby for Christmas.

Only, when I opened to box to assemble it looked like this:

Well, the closest ikea is about 2 hours away and I didn't want to spend the time or money on gas to return it. So I primed it and then spray painted it with Rustoleum's metallic spray paint in silver and it now looks like this:
after! it is a little more metallic than the gray this picture makes it out to be.

I need to come up with something better for that corner.
love it.
Here is the dining room finally finished! I will upload a before pic. Sometime soon.
Kitchen table: a christmas gift from ikea. It has a gray- brown stain.
Light: from lowe's and was our gift to each other(me and the hubby).
DIY Chairs: click here
 All frames: from michael's (coincidence).
St. Lucia map: from our honeymoon.
Bench: used to be part of my parents old louisiana cyprus table that wouldn't fit in our dining room so I settled for just the bench. And it came in that color!
J is a tjmaxx find from this summer. I collect "j"s.
Vase on bench:  gift from SIL a few years ago,  that is usually the center piece on the table, but I wanted a Christmas-y centerpiece for December.
Paint color: "aparagus"  behr from Home Depot. Pictures show true color.

I can't decide on if I want a rug or not. What do you think?

Speaking of baby...during hubby's christmas he was tryiing on a coat.. when he stuck his hands through the sleeve he accidently hit sadie, who I was holding. Well I exclaimed " awwww you whacked the baby!" In a way too loud and way too anoxious accent. We were crying from laughing so hard.

new ride...

Not me, sadie... I decided that I needed to stop letting sadie sit in my lap while driving, so she is now in her carry on, buckled in. Safe and sound. She is not happy. But at least now she is safer and less likely to fly through the windshield. And I am less likely to get in a wreck.

What do you do with your dog on trips?
