Dining Room On the Garden 2008

Masterpiece!  Each garden for the 2008 Antique and Garden Show was based on a painting.  Our painting by Pierre Bonnard was Dining Room On the Garden 1934-35.   

The entry window frame was purchased.  The frames on the sides and the redwood planter boxes in each corner were built by family and friends.

The window frames are finished on both sides and currently hanging from the ceiling of our basement.   The blue tiles are also in the basement waiting patiently to become the floor for our new wine cellar.

The urns now flank our dining room door.

 The table, chairs, and carpet were all temporarily borrowed from my in-laws dining room.  The dishes were on-loan from a local shop.  Tablescaping at the Garden Show!

  5. This was such an interesting concept!! I enjoyed being able to put down my train tracks in the dining room while the table wasn't there!!!!

  6. Well, I see you got to use your tablescaping skills on this one. '-)
