My Dining Room

I found these dishes at my favorite antique store and fell in love with them. They were one of my inspiration pieces for the room.
This tray and the "Tuscan" casserole and tidbits and saucers were also my color inspiration. I love this turquoise color!

Here is the shelf I made that I had promised more pictures of. I made it from a bifold closet door (you could use a shutter too) and some wooden brackets I got at Lowes. I screwed them together and spray painted it black. It was very simple.

Here is a closeup of the bracket.

I also made panel curtains in there. The fabric coloring did not turn out as bright as I wanted it once they were lined, but I am not redoing them! I put pom pom fringe on the sides to add bit of interest to them.
