Dining Room In Progress
I know there are a lot of people out there that don’t use their dining rooms and we aren’t one of those people. Even when it is just the three of us eating a Paul Newman frozen pizza you can find us in our dining room. Part of the reason could be that we have a tiny table and two chairs in our nook now but, come to think of it, we have always spent a lot of time in our previous dining rooms. When we bought this house the walls were brown and there was pink marble and carpet on the floors. As you can see in the image below there was also a polished brass chandeli
We had wood flooring installed, painted the walls and switched out the chandelier. When everything needs revamping in your house all at once you learn to use a lot of what you have to make due. Right now we only have four chairs so when we need to accommodate company we have to bring the only two chairs we have in the kitchen nook into the dining room. If there are more than six of us we have to spread out to the bar in the kitchen. I look forward to the day we are equipped to seat eight comfortably.
Yesterday I scored the two bird prints and I absolutely love them!
We have high ceilings so there is a lot of wall space to fill. The large mirror was a recent acquisition in attempt to fill that large wall space. I think we might need to add some sconces on either side or maybe we’ll leave it as is. Not sure yet.
A view looking into the foyer and living room…
It is definitely a more casual dining room. Maybe that is why we gravitate towards the room so much.
I hope you all are having a great week!
