Sloooow Goooing!

I'm slowly but surely getting there...still have a lot more to do before I'm finished with my dining room makeover. I can mark a few things off the list...painting the room...having my new wood floors installed...moving the furniture into their new spaces...washing all of my china and crystal...then loading it all back into the china cabinet...also had to load all my silver serving pieces back into the buffet and believe me ladies...this takes soooo much time...but so worth it!!!! I still need to...hang my new drapes...hang my mirror and other wall decor...paint my chandelier (yes...I'm going to paint my brass chandelier)...buy some white shelves and install them and work on a new vignette for the buffet...all I need is....TIME!!!! I'm not one to hurry with a project, I like to take my time and take it slow...I think SLOW is my middle name...so what's your middle name?
                                                   Hope y'all come back now...real soon,
                                                                          Linda


                                                               Work in progress!!!!
                                                
                                                              Just look at that shine!!!

                                                      My china pattern from the 80's!!!
                                                      I would go a little different route
                                                               if I were choosing
                                                               my pattern today!!!

It's looking good Linda! Can't wait to see what you have been up to. That Po-boy looked pretty good too, by the way.

Well it looks like you got some of the big stuff out of the way at least. Can't wait to see the finished project! I have a somewhat similar china pattern. I only use it once or twice a year. I think whatever you pick out, it doesn't stand the test of time stylewise.

I love the shine on those glasses! Gorgeous. My middle name is 'snail' lol....slower then slow.

We have the same middle name. I bet your china pattern will come back around. That's how things go. I love my mom's china pattern from 40 years ago. Come visit my new blog and enter my giveaway-

It looks to me like you are almost done and it will be such a good feeling when you are. I love the new floors and the wall color! I am a lot like you, I like to take my time with things and get it done right.

Looking forward to your pictures!!

XO,

I need to do a lot of that before Thanksgiving! Better get busy!

Anita @ GoingALittleCoastal said...

It's looking great Linda! The floors are so pretty. My middle name would be Procrastinator! Need to work on that ;)

Slow and steady wins the race!! I think you are making great progress and can't wait to see the end result!!

Tammy said...

Just dropping back by to say thank you for following my new blog! It means so much to me. You have been entered twice in the giveaway.
Have a great weekend!

Marla @ Always Nesting said...

I'm in that same slow club. It takes me forever to make a decision, then forever to finish, then forever to like what I've done or change it. I'm a mess, lol.

elizabeth said...

Oh my it's looking good already so I can't wait to see it finished! We're in the process of changing rooms around now that we are an 'empty nest' and things are in such a disarray. We laughed the other day that we enjoy the discussing what we want to do so much more than actually doing it!

Sandi @the WhistleStop Cafe said...

It will be ready when you need it.... and that's what really matters.

Van said...

Good luck getting the work done, many of us will busy all weekend along with you!

I know it is going to be bee-u-tee-ful!!!
My middle name should be "What were you thinking?"
I always ask that about half way through every project I start!
The guys went for the first half of today's game.
Not much new to see after that. Al said the stadium was full. I'm glad.
Don't you hate the accusations that are out and about!

Everything looks like it's falling right into place and s-l-o-w is a great way to approach such projects!

I'm back on the Gulf Coast for a l-o-n-g visit with friends and family. Today I'm heading over to Sanibel to spend some quality time with some other Florida Bloggers this week. I know there will be lots of shelling and laughing involved.

I'm having a giveaway to celebrate my return to blogging, so stop by when you get a chance to join the fun!!!

Hugs my dear friend.

I can't wait to see your dining room makeover. My middle name is also "slow" and my last name is "because I have toddler twins in the mix." lol! Loving the sparkle of your china! Thank you so much for stopping by my blog. I'm so happy you loved it enough to follow, too. I'm a little SLOW to thank you but life (viruses, etc.) got in the way these past two weeks. ;)

Hugs to you,
Jami
