The new console is 87 inches long, so it will fill up the new dining room wall nicely. The lamps came from One Kings Lane. The link is in my sidebar if you want to check them out. These are wood lamps (not resin) with fabric shades that I got for less than $100 each. Locally, when I see wood lamps, they are typically $250 and up.
It’s about 2 ft deep, so it will be the perfect size to serve as a buffet when we have company. It’s made from reclaimed elm.
I moved some things in here from another room.

Lynda Vaughan says
Hi Anita….I love your blog, and especially your mirror! I have a brassy looking gold mirror, and I have been trying to figure out what to do with it. I don’t want to go with the white paint as you did (even though I love it!) it just wouldn’t look right with my decor. I wonder about staining it a darker more brown antique gold. Not so brassy. Any thoughts? How do you suggest I do this?
Kim @ Savvy Southern Style says
Anita, it is all gorgeous. Love that console. Lucky you to get such a good deal.
Deanne Langford says
Love the mirror better now that it is painted, looks lovely with your console!
Anita, it is going to be fun to tag along with you as you build and furnish your new home. The new console is lovely and will be so useful. It’s great to have a long piece for serving in a dining room.

I am doubtful that the armoire would look better in my house, but I know it would make my house look better! Great finds!
Fleaing France & French Shopping Tours says
Very pretty Anita. I love that you made your own chalk paint and just check out the link to it. I have no idea what they would refer to the additive as over here so I may just have to stick to Annie Sloan 🙂
Great find on the console table as well!
Charm Bracelet Diva says
Peggy may want the armoire but I want the table! And the before mirror? Ew. Your mirror? Love it!
Yvonne @ StoneGable says
You have been a busy girl, Anita! I love love love your choices!!! The legs on your console table makes me drool!
And what you did to that mirror… brilliant! I hope you do a tutorial on your painting technique!
I am so happy for you!! You will have some gorgeous pieces to take to your new home!!!
Gee Singh Newbanks says
Ok.. I am drooling over the legs on the new piece. How perfect is that… sale and the clearance. Perfection!! And the marriage of it and the mirror …
What a beautiful dining room Anita.
wonderful new pieces! Love the mirror, and the console looks wonderful! I happen to think that Restoration Hardware (for the most part) isn’t all that terribly priced. They constantly have sales, and I find their pieces good quality. Great that you got this one on clearance!
Maria Elena says
Anita, it looks gorgeous!!! I love, love that beautiful mirror! Great changes!
It is a beautiful room I find it romantic. I am in love with that mirror. Just stunning.
Hi Anita! Your room is so beautiful! Love your style.
Be a sweetie,
Looks beautiful! However, let’s wait until you get moved and see that armoire in the breakfast room before you decide it works perfectly! It may just look better in my home! 🙂

Lynda, I’ve posted an answer to your question on the ranch’s FB page https://www.facebook.com/CedarHillRanch
Hope that helps. I did try this technique with limited success. It worked, but I didn’t like the look on my frame.
i’m crazy bout RH and have an outlet not terribly far away. love what you have done to the dining room!
hope you can stop by when you have a moment.
smiles and sunshine to you.
