We removed the closet bi-fold doors along with the track...

turned the closet space into a serving area.

The rolling cabinet was in the it serves as a storage cabinet for silverware, glasses and such.

The mirror was a previous find...repurposed the frame to match the room.

David had made the pine cupboard years ago when we were inspired by one we saw in a General Store in Petoskey Michigan. It's the only piece of furniture in the room that is natural.
The nitch above the opening is the perfect place for displaying my white pitchers...


Think I could leave a feather tree up all year long?????....

Spent quite some time painting and sanding frames and mirrors...

Still more to come....



  1. Yes- I DO think you could leave that feather tree up all year long. What a perfect room this is turning into. How close it is to the kitchen? Easy for serving? I LOVE THIS ROOM, Kathy! I can't WAIT to see it ALL done! lol Hugs- Diana

  2. Love the niche with pitchers...Lezlee

  3. What a beautiful room!! Love the pitchers in the nitch above the door frame!!

  4. Wow can there be more. Keep that cabinet natural. I love hints of wonderful wood around the house.

  5. Hi Kathy,
    Your dining room or should I say "dreaming room" just gets lovelier and lovelier. I think the closet space redo is fabulous and the cabinet made by David is so wonderful. Love all the little drawers.

    Keep it coming.


  6. I would leave the feather tree up:) You can add things for the seasons:) Love the niche/nook kathy..What a little dream room you have created!

  7. Every post keeps getting better and better! I love how you repurposed the closet into a serving area!~Hugs, Patti

  8. I love the niche and yes it is perfect for the pitchers. I have to admit though that my eyes went right for the bowl on the table with the silver balls and candle! I have a major thing for silver Christmas ornaments and love to see them all year long.
    I would leave the tree out, the ambient light is lovely! Have a great weekend....

  9. I love what you did with the closet niche. And, yes - you can leave the feather tree up all year long. Who says it has to be a Christmas tree? It could be a Valentine's tree, a St. Patricks tree - you get the idea! Just change the name to fit the season.


Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts with me...I am always encouraged by your kind expressions and thoughtful comments....Know that you are loved....xoxo Kathy.
