Cozy corners..........

For the longest time this corner was home to the biggest and rather ugly speaker that my husband insists on keeping.  He has this frat boy idea that we are going to have loud music all through the house with speakers everywhere.........well, not on my watch.  I convinced him to move them upstairs so I could reclaim this space in the dining room and now its so much prettier!

One of the wonderful things about having an older home with character is that you can do different things  everyone doesn't always think of.  In this case, I used barn board for wainscotting that I lightly white washes with a vintage looking paper above........I love the effect.

When we bought this house I searched high and low to find just the right style of woodstove to suit the house.  I had to purchase it from the states but it is well worth it.  I use it to keep food warm as well as the house cozy and warm.
