After lunch I did a good wipe down of the dining room so that it was picture presentable! <Does your dining room table accumulate clutter like mine?> Here is part TWO of our house tour. I have to say.. I am so happy that I went through the house with our camera before we got to work. Its been fun for me to look back and makes me appreciate my home in a new way. This is a picture of our dining room the day we closed on the house:
I wasn’t and am not crazy about the laminate floor choice made for the dining room, but I read in a decorating catalog once if you can’t replace it, try to work with it. Here’s the best I came up with:
Last year (shortly after we found out we were pregnant with baby #2), Ryan and I bought our dining room set online from World Market. For the right hand side (against the wall), we purchased a bench for seating. You may be looking at the size of our table and wondering if we were planning ahead for a “troop”. We’re not. 🙂 For 2010, one of my New Year’s resolutions was that we would entertain in our home more. In the previous years we talked a lot about doing it or who we would like to have over… but never executed our plan. I’m happy to say, I am totally meeting that goal this year!
