31 Days or Our Home - Day 2 - Dining Room

Tonight, I take you through our Dining Room!  Our Dining Room is on the larger size and for a long time, I could not get it right.  As we grew our family, I was determined to utilize every square inch of our house and no space be wasted. So when I realized that we NEVER used our dining room except for holidays and big parties, I decided to make some changes.  

I turned the table the opposite way and added a sitting area with a small couch and a couple chairs and ottoman.  This area is "my area" to read, have a glass of wine in peace or for all of us girls to hang when the guys are watching a game in the living room.  

I decorated it match the rest of my house, but a bit different with shades of orange.  This is probably my favorite room in the house and I am excited to have pics to remember it :)  Enjoy...

I do have some fall decorations out just so yall know that I don't keep "Boo" signs out in my decor year round :)...

 This room is also wear the dogs like to lay in the sun.  Cooper lays on a pillow in the floor and Oscar lays on this couch.  We are very emotional tonight because Oscar is at the vet with a bad back injury and we are not sure he is going to come back home :(.  Please add him to your prayers and my kids (well me and Shane too, we are a mess!) as we get through this and hopefully have our sweet pup home soon...
 I love this tic tac toe board game and the kids are always playing...err throwing it across the house.  I also keep the latest yearbooks in that tray and Bree loves to look through them and sometimes rip out the binding :).  That is a really cute Halloween bucket too!

I love this candle holder and it is out year round. I love the whimsical touch to it!

 Shane grandfather painted that top picture for us and I will keep it forever!

And of course no room in my house is complete without a picture removed from the frame and "drawn on" by Bree :).

Holler if you have any questions or want to know where something is from!

I am so happy you're doing this! Every time you post pics that just show a little bit of your home in the background, I am curious! So I will definitely be following along (= you have great taste, girl!

I'm loving your dining room - GORGEOUS!!! Also, love the outside of your home as well!!! Praying for your pup and hoping God puts his healing hands upon his back so that he can come home to be with his family - I'm a pet owner so my pets are considered part of the family - they are my kids.

Please share where you purchased that whimsical candle holder, the pumpkins and feathered witch hat...LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! Also, whereever did you get that Life is Beautiful artwork?

Love your blog and have been a follower for quite sometime!
