When we first looked at our house I loved the dining room. It is a good sized room and it has always had so much potential. I looked long and hard to find the table, I wanted a round, 60 inch table that didn't cost a fortune. Craigslist was good to me and I found this Pottery Barn table and chairs for a steal. The latest additions to the room have really completed the look for me. The corner cabinet and the black buffet are our two newest purchases. When Grandma and Poppa were here a couple of weeks ago Jon and I were able to go shopping just the two of us. It was so relaxing to go to a store and be able to look around and talk. We found both of these pieces that day, and a mattress, but those aren't nearly as pretty to look at. It has taken me a little while to get everything decorated and now I love our dining room. It has so much more personality now. I like to just go in there and sit now that it feels done. Once our schedule slows down a little we are hoping to have some friends over so we can actually use it, I am so excited!
The view from the kitchen
In this picture you can see the church pew that I found at a local consignment shop. I had painted it black when we got it several months ago and I love it even more now that I have the black buffet too.
