Have you ever heard that saying “Every room needs a little black?” I don’t know who said it, but it must have been a VERY wise person. ‘Cuz I agree. If I agree with you, then you must be wise. Whateva.
Now it looks like this. I actually cut this piece of fabric from my garage sale fabric window mistreatments in the dining room. Seriously, you can’t even tell I cut out a chunk.
I added back in my five dollar centerpiece, and now I’m lovin’ this look more than the original. The table top you see is my dining room table, and the legs and chair backs are painted black and distressed. The black frame looks so much better. It also adds some visual weight to the arrangement.
How is it that black pants are supposed to be SLIMMING, but black accessories ADD weight?
Then I added black numbers. EVERYONE has numbers, so I needed some too. Not sure yet where I’m going to put them, but they’ll probably replace some rainbow vomit.
Yep, calm and sophisticated, that’s me.
You KNEW I had to do this one.
- Don’t ever think you can cut a cellulose sponge into a perfect circle, you can’t. If you want nice polka dots, go buy a round stencil sponge.
- It doesn’t have to be perfect to be beautiful. Thank God for the Nester.

I’m linking up too, to Kimba’s DIY Day.
