I thought I might show a photo of what our dining room looked like when we bought our house 5 years ago. Scary huh! It has had a few looks since then...
This chocolate brown I really loved and was almost sad to see it go. But I was ready for a change. This table I bought when I was pregnant with Rhett. Didn't really plan on having twins and out growing it. That's what I get for trying to plan everything. So that table is going on Craig's list soon. (any pointers?)
Well here she is. I can't tell you how much the lighter, brighter color really does make the space feel so much bigger. Like a breath of fresh air to walk into this room. Yay, to be able to all fit at the table together and get rid of the highchairs. I am still planning to purchase those chairs at Ikea for the ends of the table. We are making the trip in May.
I can't tell you how excited I was to find these frames at Gordman's. They were perfect and better yet dirt cheap! And finally I got to put some of the pictures I have been taking around down in proper frames. Sure makes them look good. (If I do say so myself)
These curtains my friend Chris got for her house and the more I thought about them the more I had to have some for myself. Perfect for the look I was going for in this room. Not to mention they were $15 for the pair.
This room certainly has come a long way from what it started out as 5 years ago. Thanks for looking!
