Would you like to see my dining room?

Almost exactly a year ago I blogged about painting my dining room gray.  You can read the post here

Since that post I have hung new curtains.  Purchased and returned three different rugs, finally choosing to skip the rug.  Moved the wine bar out, moved it back in.  Moved the buffet to where the wine bar was and finally moving the buffet back to its original spot.  Replaced the mirror with a great vintage cabinet.  Decorated and redecorated.  Purchased and hung a gorgeous chandelier.

After all of this, I just couldn't seem to get it right.  Then, a few weeks ago I found the perfect dining chairs on sale at World Market.  The chairs are big, upholstered and comfy.   Our dining room went from a lonely room that rarely had visitors to a place where we eat dinner most evenings, hang out and catch up on the day.  We love it!

comfy chairs
Vintage cabinet
Wine bar.  The picture needs to be lowered.  What do you think?
Chandelier.  Love the vintage feel with the modern twist.




Because of my decorating ADHD, I still want to change a few things.  That's the fun part!

Thanks for looking,
Laurie

Lovely. Grey has been the color for me for the past two years. It has found it's way into my art too. Most everything I paint is in a grey wash. Don't you just love World Market?! I don't recall seeing those chairs but they look great in your dining room. This is my first time visiting your blog...am now a follower. Oh almost forgot...the chandie is the best I've ever seen!
