I shared our kitchen makeover last week so thought I would share the minor changes we made on the other side of the room today. We didn't do a whole lot but we did change up a few things. First, because we added the bar overhang to the counter and some stools that meant we moved the table over about a foot and because of that the wire chandelier didn't work as well so I took that back down and moved it out to the porch. Then my mom surprised me with this tiered stand. My sister, Jamie purchased one for a great price a couple years ago when we were all together antiquing up in Peterborough and we've all been wanting one just like it ever since. Every time we've shown it here on the blog (most recently in the post about Everly's first birthday party) we've gotten quite a few e-mails and comments asking where it was purchased and seeing how it was from a little shop in NH that no longer carries it we aren't much help. Well, a reader commented about this one from Mothology and she was right - it's the exact one. It was pricier than the one Jamie had purchased so I was quite surprised and thrilled when it showed up on my doorstep. I added some pears, dishes, potted herbs and some cut branches from our yard to mine for now but am looking forward to switching it up seasonally.

The other change in this room was the rug. We moved the other one up to our gray guest bedroom where the colors went perfectly (it always drove me a little crazy that it was one size too small for this room - it was hard to tell that in photos but in real life it was more obvious). We took this one from the playroom and moved it down here. It's the perfect size for this room. I have to say I think the other one looked a little bit prettier in here but all in all moving the three rugs (we also moved the one from the black and white guest bedroom into the playroom) works out best overall.

And here's a little reminder what this side of the room looked like when we moved in.
