Little Things

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?

 Next up....painting the exterior of the house; that is, once we can decide on a color.

  1. Will you be annoyed if I order the exact same oil clothe? That is the best pattern I have seen in a long time. It looks so fresh and interesting. Love it with your chairs too. Your house is really coming together, isn't it?
