{Dining Room} Tour

Pin It
I shared with you here, our girl's room in the new house!



Today I would love to share with you our Dining Room.  It is SO NICE to not eat every meal in the kitchen any more!  I love that we have a separate dining room for dinner time and holidays.  

I know some families wouldn't use a "formal" dining room, but we do!


So here it is!



We got at extra long table, with leaves than can be taken out.  The six chairs in the middle are fully wipe-able   And boy, am I glad about that!




I'm in LOVE with these "queen" chairs, as Miss J calls them.  The high backs are so fun!


Pillows for each of the "queen" chairs.  Love this print.



I couldn't believe my good luck when I found this buffet!  It's perfect for the aqua accents I did it the room.




The weathered, rustic feel is great for this space.  The little drawers are handy for storing all my entertaining supplies too!





On top of the buffet, I found these aqua lamps, and my favorite white candlesticks.  They belonged to my great-grandma.  She is the one who taught me to sew-I miss her an awful lot.





The brassy mirror above my buffet *might* be my favorite part of the room.




Or this life size pocket watch.  It's a tie!







For the middle of the table, I found this chippy, aqua tray.  I threw in a few succulents, and called it good!






Thanks for checking out my new space!

We just moved and for the first time my girls are smooshed :) together in a room so I'm trying to come up with some creative decorating to fit both of their personalities.

  25. Dining room chairs play a vital role in the dining room. How they look and fit in the room is important, but it's also imperative that they be comfortable.

  26. Would you be willing to share your source for your curtains? I love that they are neutral while still having so much style!
