Never Stop Improving

It's been a while since we have had a home improvement post, so get excited!  In the past couple months we replaced the stove and microwave that came with the house after the stove literally stopped working and the microwave had bouts of randomly turning on its fan (I mean really randomly, like hours after dinner while we're watching a movie) and refusing to allow us to turn the fan back off.  We'll miss you phantom fan . . . or not.  We now have these fancy smancy stainless steel appliances -- much better!

Jesse's grandfather gifted us with his lovely dining room set, which has come in handy a couple times since then.  It fits perfectly in our dining room and looks great.  I am toying with the idea of replacing the upholstery with dark red fabric to match our drapes.  Thoughts? 

The new dining set was a perfect excuse for us to fill that massive hutch with some china, crystal, and silver plate.  Yay for fancy dinner parties!  And it's a good thing that we have some nice wine glasses, because something tells me we're going to pick us more than a couple bottles of Riesling real soon. 


  1. Awesome! On everything! Yes to the red - Just get samples To Be sure they match and I'd make it a tweed so dust doesn't show as much. Beautiful!
