Update On My Dining Room

Update On My Dining Room

Decorating & Remodel, Furniture, My Home
I can finally say I am so happy with how my dining room has come together.  After 3 different tables I have finally found the perfect one!  This room has been a labor of love a slow labor of love as we are now going on 4 years of living in our house, but as I look at it, I can honestly say it was worth the wait to make it just perfect.
My neighbor gave me this chandelier,  they found it in a storage shed and no one wanted it….except me.  It was just what I was looking for and the perfect fit for this space.  (full post here)
My open shelves have done wonders for this space.  It is so amazing that removing the cabinet and putting open shelves here would make that big of a difference but it did!  (Full post and tutorial here)
I love the look of upholstered chairs, but they are just not very practical with children.  So I made these skirts to cover the seats.  They are made from a drop cloth so if they get dirty I just throw them in the washer and they are as good as new.  The other 4 chairs I found and made wood seats for them (tutorial here)

And last but not least and the icing on the cake is this beautiful sign.  I had been looking for the perfect something or other for this space.  This sign by HomeSpun Signs was the perfect touch.  I love the inspiring quote, it is perfect for our home!

    I absolutely love white and the turquoise pops are gorgeous! I love your space! The quote from Thomas S. Monson is perfect too. I am going to look into buying one. You have done a beautiful job.
