Tour de Dining Room

1 Oct

I am linking up to Kelly’s korner again this week for the show us your life series. This week’s focus is the dining room.

We actually use our dining room quite a bit. Mostly just for everyday dinners and the occasional dinner guests.

I found this pretty vintage fabric at goodwill one day and thought it would make a perfect autumn table runner.

When I bought these paper lanterns I had the brilliant idea that we could wire them into the electrical wires and use them as the actual light fixture. Little did I know how difficult that would be! So I just attached them to the ceiling with string and it gives a similar effect.

I love our Ikea bookshelves! They provide so much storage and a place to put some of my seasonal decorations.  It also stores our extra wine glasses and our ever growing book collection.

Our dining room wall is made up of 4 windows and a random door that is nailed shut. I wanted to hide the door and cover the windows but still let some light in. I couldn’t find curtains that were the right size or if they were the right size they were super expensive. So I jumped on the drop cloth curtain bandwagon. I really like them a lot! They provide coverage and they’re super cuuute!

Thanks for stopping by! Check out Kelly’s blog for more dining room tours!
