Right now it is painted light blue, I'm not sure if I will refinish it the natural wood tone or not...I could potentially do a dining room in blues and creams. See these inspiration rooms from pinterest:
Did you all register for fine china? I will be getting my grandmother's china, which is simple and timeless and I love it! However, I think I want to register for some salad plates, in my own pattern, as well as some serving pieces. I'm 90% sure I'm going to go with Royal Crown Derby - Blue Aves.
My grandmother's china, which my mother will be passing down to me, is Lenox Imperial. It will be so special to set our holiday (and hopefully more often than that) table with her china. I was never able to meet her and it's like having a bit of her there...The off white color in the Lenox and the Blue Aves match perfectly and the gold rim on the Blue Aves salad plates will compliment the Lenox beautifully!
The salad plates I would register for:
I think I need the teacups and saucers too!
What do you all think? What patterns did you register for? Or did you receive family china as well?
