If you follow me on Facebook then you know this has been a long time coming! Sorry it took so long! I haven’t been feeling very well and we seem to have a place to be everyday. After a a super long time of planning and 8 months of building we’re in our new house and slowly getting rooms just the way I (we? Nah, he lets me take care of that) like! So today we’ll start the tour! We’ll begin with the dining area…
You can see just how close to my parents we live! There’s the view of their house from our dining area! Our little lemon tree isn’t doing so hot, so if you have any tips please share them and save Lou!
Our dining table and chairs are definitely my greatest Craig’s list find ever. A somewhat local women was selling her nearly perfect Pottery Barn table and was kind enough to even deliver! The seats at the heads of table match, but not really :) one is TJMaxx chair, the other IKEA, both have Target Shabby Chic chair covers on. The small shelves are IKEA too!
Most of the things in the picture have been painted dozens of times ;) These things have traveled with us!
My wildest choices in this house go to the lighting category for sure! I am in love with my mason jar chandelier. It looks so pretty on or off! It was a plain light with glass tubes, but we switched the tubes out for wide mouth ball jars. Much better!
Here’s a not as pretty picture, taken at night…oh well! Also, this was before I “Spring-ified” my buffet and table!
