Show Us Where You Live Friday - Dining Room!


Are you thinking - didn't she post this picture last time? You should, because I did, to see the whole family room you have to look at the dining room!
I love that we are always in this space together but I have found I don't like that the kids want to watch tv during dinner time! Or that the table and counter gets used as a catch all with the kids things. We're working on that! Love my black buffet and change out the top decor often with the seasons and holidays!
Here is a picture of our kitchen from the model we looked at. Has anyone else been weird like me and done this? I wanted to be able to go back and see how they did things!Love my Ballard chandelier too - it was one of the first things I changed after moving in. You should have seen the light fixture the house came with. We saw it - for $25 at Lowe's . What a piece of junk. I decorate this too for Christmas..Birthdays and baby showers! Too fun!

Thanks for stopping by!

What a great idea to use the fixture to help with special decorating. I do this too, but not as well!! :)

Very pretty dining room. I love the idea of hanging decorations from the chandelier. I may have to "borrow" that one.

That is a VERY good idea about taking pacifiers to the nursery. Emily has been like your niece-never without one. I always try to take it out for pictures.
Saturday night was TERRIBLE!!!!!!!!!! I will post about it later.
I love your dining room!

OH man. What I wouldn't do to have those high ceilings! Love the pink balls hanging from the chandelier. Paper balls, Kris, paper balls! Gees!
