This was my dining room at 9 AM this morning. (Please excuse the decor in the corner. I told you I have anticipated this day for awhile now!)
And after the delivery this afternoon:
Yes, I know...I went a little overboard with the pictures, but I AM SOOO EXCITED to finally have nice furniture in the dining room. Not pictured is a leaf that can be inserted in the table, hence the 2 extra chairs in each corner. I love the clean lines of this style from Ashley Furniture, and can't wait to share many dinners with friends and family!
Now, for the decorating. I have bought a few items for the room, but am still unsure exactly what I would like to do to transform this dining room. I know that I would like floor to ceiling red curtains for the two windows on the front side of our home. My aunt has agreed to make them for me whenever I find the time to choose a fabric and pattern. I think this addition will have such a dramatic effect on the room!
I purchased a mirror to hang over the server from Marshall's, but after seeing it together, I have determined that the mirror is too small. I am going to return it at some point, and hopefully find a new one that fits the piece better. I also picked up a few other items such as candle sticks and picture frames that I want to play with after I get the mirror in place.
My other dilemma...which wall to hang these two items:
|My Bridal Portrait Canvas|
|A clock I found at Marshall's|
There are two walls in the dining room that either of these will look good on:
|I think the clock will look best on this wall...|
|...and my portrait on this wall.|
What do you think? Any ideas?? All are appreciated :)
