Show Us Where You Live- Dining Room


I haven't participated in a Show Us Where You Live in a while, but I LOVE my dining room, and I really want to show it off, if only to my blogger friends! So here we go....


Okay, before I show you what it is NOW, I want you to see what I started with...

Standing in the dining room, looking into the kitchen-


Nice 80's fixture (it was plastic, by the way...NICE) and bare, flat, nasty white walls...but I had nice moulding. It was the only thing that would stay...


And now....

Here is my Broyhill piece that I got at an estate sale for CHEAP CHEAP CHEAP!!! Love this thing! It was in inspiration for my whole room. I know it looks messy on top, but I am rapidly running out of places to store things!


We took down the cabinets when we redid the kitchen (you HAVE to come back on kitchen week to see that transformation! Awesome!) and added a breakfast bar. This is looking into the dining room from the sink.



The color above the chair rail is called Aegean Teal by Ben Moore. LOVE LOVE LOVE it! It is SO going in our next house!!!



Looking into the dining room from the living room.



I love our plates. They are from BB&B, and I selected the teal color from them. I just HAD to use them in the room, so I picked up these plate hangers at HobLob and hung them on either side of the bay window.


I am a Willow House consultant (formerly known as Southern Living at Home), and this is a piece from our Spring catalog. I just love this ice bucket and stand. We don't drink a lot, but this is great for parties! Wine, beer, soda! Great!


This is my HOG platter. We are big HOG fans here at the Brewer's, and this is great for those watch parties!!!


This is a wall decal that I got online somewhere. I just love it!


This is my Happy Everything Platter. The attachments at the top change, and it is great for every season! I also have a Happy Everything apron (come back for the kitchen tour to see it!) and I am itching for the cookie jar!


Our table has a drawer under it, and this is where I keep my bag of Happy Everything attachments.


I don't have all of them, but I am working on it!!! ;)


This is the cabinet to the right of the breakfast bar. Instead of having a dead space, we put this in, and it is a great place to keep our entertaining dishes.


I cannot believe I am showing this...it is a MESS....


Here is the breakfast bar that we put in. We use it ALL the time- I don't know what we did without it!!!


This guy used to be above the fireplace, but I needed something heavy for this wall. I think he fits the bill nicely! Don't you love him?!?! He was $30 on MEGA sale! Love him now???? :)


Thanks for stopping by! Hope to see you next time! And feel free to check out my other posts and follow me! I *heart* new followers!!! :)
