Dining Room Reveal

Dear Friends,
     Well, it’s officially “move that bus” time.   Let’s take a look at the dining room, shall we?

Decopaged plates from the old house
Mirror hung vertically this time

A watercolor painting of my husband’s school growing up – it was originally a castle!

It is similar to the old dining room but still very different! We used the rug & curtains from the old living room.  The lamps are from the family room at the old house.  The ceilings are so much taller here that the previous dining room accessories were dwarfed.  I still think I’d like some sconces on the wall on each side of the mirror but that is a minor detail.   I think this also gives better insight into the chandelier revamp.  It was competing too much with the focal wall beforehand.  
I would have loved to hang the curtains higher but when you already own a beautiful silk pair it isn’t worth buying new for a couple of inches.  I might even do a moulding treatment above. I guess nothing is ever “finished” but it is good enough for me to move on!

Next week I’ll show you my gallery wall in the foyer which I am equally excited about.  Woohoo for finally having some show n’ tell!  You have been very patient readers.  Thanks for sticking with me the last couple of months.  🙂


  1. Lookin’ good, Erin! I think it all looks lovely. Of course, your dining room at the old house was so gorgeous, but this looks great to me. I agree that it’s not worth changing the draperies just to gain a couple of inches of height–and natural light doesn’t appear to be a problem in this room anyway. Isn’t that “hang them high” trick mostly so that you don’t block out the light?

    All in all, I’d say you’re making great progress on turning this new house into a real home! 🙂
