As with all close families, the dining area is the “melting “pot” of family happenings. Kay had her husband’s picture at the head of the table,, which I found wonderfully positioned. I elaborated on it a little, yet most of my work in this room was refurbishing an old bench she had in her barn. We refurbished the frame and then reupholstered it in a colorful, whimsical floral applique pattern.
