An easy and fun way to update a room is with new artwork. Prints and canvas art can be inexpensive and immediately gives your home a new look.
Since adding board and batten to our dining room, I’ve been searching for new artwork for the south wall. I found an Antique sign for the north wall that worked out well.
You might remember the my cream-colored buffet was on the north wall with painted shutters and a wreath above it. But after getting a new farmhouse table and chairs, I felt this area needed to better match the look I was going for.
When I found four feather prints at Antique Farmhouse, I measured the space above the buffet to make sure they’d fit. However, once I hung the new artwork, the cream-colored buffet looked small and awkward.
Sometimes you have to be flexible and resourceful when making decorating changes. So the creamy buffet got swapped with the gray wood cabinet in the sitting room. I actually like the smaller, lighter buffet in this space better – you can see it in my summer colors tour.
The gray cabinet is slightly taller and longer and balances the set of four feather prints much better.
I’m lovin’ the new artwork for my farmhouse dining room. The feather prints are soft and neutral with simple black wood frames.
My creeping fig, one of my favorite houseplants, is still going strong.
On the other end of the gray cabinet are two of my vintage mirrors, a leaf print, and gold vases.
Luckily, swapping out the cabinets worked and my new artwork of four feather prints no longer looks overwhelming.
The last thing to be done in my dining room is to find a new area rug. I’m in no hurry though.
