Finally did some unpacking and got our tiny aluminum tree decorated. We plan to have a much bigger tree next year but the living room is an absolute wreck right now because we’re in the middle of painting it & patching holes, etc. I wanted to make one spot nice for Xmas Eve so I managed to make room in our dining area. In a week or two the dining area will be painted (it’s currently the same ugly gray/blue color that the previous owners left it) and I hope we can afford to get a rug soon.
The vintage Danish modern dining set was a recent local find. We were told that it was made in the ’60s by Dyrlund and it came with 2 leaves so we can expand it if we need to. Best of all? The whole set (4 chairs & table) only cost us $150! The clock on the wall was my Xmas gift to my husband this year and the painting was done in the ’60s by a Latvian artist named Jurjans who was a friend of the family.
