Happy Leap Day!!
Isn't this just the coolest little extra day? My favorite memory of Leap Day is from when I was little, too young to be in school. Our next door neighbors were like our grandparents, and Mr. McClain took my sister and me in his old black pickup truck to McDonald's for $0.29 french fries that day. Isn't it funny the things that stick in your mind?
And, HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my friend and college roomie Julie today! She's 10!!! (really 40!!) She's the only leap day baby I know, and we always got a kick
out of her birthday in school. Happy Birthday Jules!
I wanted to do a fun Leap Day design related post today, but came up with nothing.
So, I have a dilemma for you to weigh in on instead.
My dining room re-do hangs in the back of my mind every day...it's slowly coming along. I've been searching for a new china cabinet to go on the one wall in that room . I love this style-to be painted most likely-to mix with the other pieces I'm using.
Here's my dilemma: is this tall enough for the space? These older china cabinets are my favorite, but they're just not very tall. Could I get away with just putting something on top of it to add some height?
Here's a little peek of the wall and a rough estimate with tape of the size of the cabinet.
Excuse the poor quality of the photo, I'm still trying to work with a broken camera.
But, you can see my new chairs! Those are the only thing that is done so far! That table's not staying there, probably not the drapes, etc., etc., etc.!
I have 10' ceilings, and this cabinet is 76" tall. I feel like it might be too short, but know that any older piece I consider will probably be about the same size.
I just pinned this picture yesterday and LOOVVVE it so much!
