English Country Dining Room a la Betsy




~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Continuing on with my buddy Kris's dining room.....
I suspected that I had potentially found a friend,
 when 
she believed me about 
this chandelier....

We were still working on her living room at the time, but when you find something unusual and stunning, 
you gots to grab it.
The reason I felt we couldn't pass this piece up
 was because of its scale.
Usually chandeliers this detailed and fancy schmany are larger,
 and rooms this size can't handle them.....
Sooooooo.......
When we were looking for somethings for her living room in a local antique store,
 and I saw this baby, 
I knew we had to grab it.
Now the problem with this.....
Is I sometimes feel my clients think it's just a sales technique to get them to release their tight hold on their moolah......
Kris, bless her gullible trusting heart, 
believed me!!!!!
Check out the details!!!!!

Of course, I had to  have custom shades made for the #$% thing.....
We still congratulate each other on this find.
We have never seen another come close
 to how nice this one is in this size.
If you are a fellow antiquer....
You know.....
Just 'cuz you see one now, 
doesn't mean 
you'll ever see another one again!!!

Then, the next year, when we were actually working on this room.....
We found the table.
It weren't cheap.....no no no no no!!!!!
But once again.....
 I had never seen another like it, though I'm sure some of my intrepid readers have.....
Check out the legs on this baby!!!!
Her hubby wasn't so sure about splurging on this, 
but I looked DEEP into Kris's eyes.....
and assured her.....
SHE'D NEVER REGRET BUYING THIS BEHEMOTH!!!!!
At this point in time.....
It has served its purpose well....
through Thanksgivings, Christmases.....
Hey!!!
WAIT JUST ONE MINUTE!!!!
Now that I think about this.....
I'VE NEVER EATEN AT THIS #$% TABLE!!!!!
Although they do let me eat in the kitchen.....
Which I will be showing you guys next week or the week after.....

On Thursday, I will continue writing about stuff in this room.
'cuz that's what I do.....
write about stuff....

Beautiful. I really like the warm tones in the room. It has glitz and a bit masculine going at the same time. It love a room with contrast. Probably because I'm fickle and like being able to adjust things according to my mood.

Oh Betsy, I usually am drawn to the 'cooler' side of the color wheel but this room is wonderful! The chandelier is perfect. You can just tell this room feels as warm as it looks!
