2nd chair

No, not talking about the fact that I was second chair in our high school saxophone section.  But those were some pretty hilarious memories. More like I finished re-upholstering the other chair for my dining room the other day.  The second chair went together much faster that the first, guess a little practice never hurt anyone.

Quite a few people had questions on my buffet from the other chair post.  It’s the dumont buffet from west elm. I got lucky and snagged it up when it was on sale and I had my coupons in hand.  The perfect mix of modern and Scandinavian style, I agree.

The prints on the floating shelf are: pink triangle print by twoems and the midwest by brainstorm

Part of my cathrineholm collection (more on that later), and a lovely little yellow dansk enamel pitcher.

I’m pretty much done decorating my living room/dining room area.  I had picked up a really cool glass door cabinet at an estate sale a couple months ago, just need to figure out if I’ll be painting it.  Anyway, hope to give you the full tour after Christmas.

    I am IN LOVE with your chairs! Charming! And your “look” as well, especially the bowls and the Midwest map. Speaks to me of “home.”

    Your chairs (and everything else) are just too cool Anna! Of course Midwest is sold out because we live in the BEST part of the USA right? Merry Christmas to you and your family.

    I love that you used different colors for the two chairs. It’s such a beautiful space, and I think it’s very “you” :) Hope you are taking care of yourself, Anna.
