New Dining Room Curtains & My Favorite Flower

I have been working away on the dining room. 
From My Front Porch To Yours- New Dining Room Curtains
So far I have this little corner put together and the new curtains up. If you missed it last week I shared how I achieved the custom cross buck/barn door wainscoting.

I love the faux linen striped panels. They are the same color story as the cabana striped ones I used in our master bedroom. If you look closely you can see that I put up lace panels in the actual windows. It is hard to get a picture where they show up.

This is how the corner of our dining room looked for more than several years.

This is what it looks like now. I have always wanted a large chalkboard in the dining room so I figured why not put one here. The blue buffet is a piece I had in our living room last year before I made that space over. It was between our two chairs. I was going to have to sell it because after the living room makeover I no longer had a place for it and it was killing me to think of letting it go. I am so glad that I ended up finding a spot for it in here! Of course I am still working on accessorizing the space but I figured y'all might like to see where I am at.
From My Front Porch To Yours- Peonies
Before I go I wanted to share the peonies Mr. FrontPorch bought for me. I have long loved Peonies and have never had any. He has always wanted to buy me some for Valentines Day but I am too practical and tell him not to spend the crazy amount of $$ on them.

When we stumbled upon these at the grocery store for just $6.99 a bunch he bought me both colors.

They are so beautiful and smell wonderful.

I even had enough to put in the kitchen to enjoy. Note sneak peek at another project I am working on!;)

I could not believe how fast the buds blossomed open after I put them in water. Peonies are truly a beautiful flower!

  6. Your peonies are gorgeous, Pamela! I just let out a sigh seeing them. : ) I love that buffet/console piece. I'm so glad to hear you found a place for it here in your dining room. I would hate to have to let that go if it was me! Love the new curtains, but you know I loved the drapes you had in here previously, too. The light colored curtains and stripes are a nice look for summer, too.

  7. Things are looking so good around your place and can one ever get enough of peonies...I think not. I've been lucky to have many blooms on my bushes these past years, but the plants themselves cost pretty much and they don't produce much the first couple years, so maybe splurging every once in a while isn't such a bad thing to do:-)

    Enjoy your blooms and have fun out at that pool this Summer!

  14. Peonies are worth every penny. You must try to grow your own! I planted a shrub at our first house, and it took at least two years for it to finally bloom. But when it did. . . Gorgeous! Even now, more than 10 years after we moved, a former neighbor will tell me, "Your peony is beautiful this year." I'm planning to plant a shrub at our new house!

  17. I'm loving the changes you're making to your dining room! It's softer now. The large chalkboard is such a great addition too. Wish I could find beautiful fresh peonies around here for that price. I love peonies, but I have fakes in my house.
