We've been in our house for about 6 months now and although we've definitely made it "home", I always have an idea of what I want to change next. This week I was lucky enough to make 2 changes that have been bothering me for some time. The first one was to replace all the handles in the kitchen so they match the appliances and make it look a bit more modern (disregarding the hideous lino of course). The second change was to cover my grandmother's table with a sensible oilcloth tablecloth. Wipeable surfaces are a must with my 2 messy kids. The finish on the original table has taken a beating and it is almost in disrepair. Instead of investing in getting it professionally refinished which is something that makes sense once our children are grown, I decided to cover it up!
What do you think?
