When you get a new dining room table you are supposed to create a new centerpiece right? That’s a rule right? Well, I just made it one. Honestly our centerpiece before was a little too much for me at the moment so I wanted to create a super simple serene centerpiece that didn’t compete with the cubbies & other things we have in our dining room. Also I wanted something simple on our new dining room table that Mr. LMB built recently [more on that soon… hopefully this week!] He did such an amazing job, so why distract from his beautiful piece of art? I just accented it with some of my recent finds, my antique glass jugs. Here is how it looked like today…
I found these at Painted Farmgirl here in Michigan where I have my booth that I sell my goods in. Yes, as I’m selling my goods I’m buying others goods.. it’s called recycling. Do it. I just love that these glass jugs are a large centerpiece & statement, but since they are clear they don’t add too much weight or distraction to the table. I think they are perfect as is. I did try to put some greenery in them & I hated it, I was craving simplicity so simple it is.
Oh & I got an antique school house clock & replaced the Ikea clock in our kitchen. I’m in love, & no it doesn’t work… yet. but for now who cares, just look at it! One of my favorite finds lately. Thank you old man who pulled this out of his barn for me!
I have always loved these schoolhouse clocks & have been wanting an authentic one for some time now. Now that this little baby is hanging in our kitchen I think it fits in perfectly & it is like it was made for our little cottage kitchen. One day we will take a few minutes to make it work, but for now it’s purely decorative & I’m perfectly ok with that. What do you guys think of my glass jug centerpiece and our new [old] antique clock? Let me know in the comments below, find me on Facebook, & chat with me on Instagram. xx
