Show Us Where You Live Friday


Dining Room Edition

Kelly, over at Kelly's Korner, is hosting a home blog tour, every Friday. Today, is the dining room edition.

The view from our entry

The view from our office

The view from our kitchen

The view from our staircase

My custom built table by my very own dad!!!

Plantation shutters...love, love, love!
My amazing dad, built this hutch, too.

I love to decorate it at Christmas time...

In the bottom cabinets, I keep all of our photo albums.

When we moved into our house, this chandelier was hanging in our office. But, we thought it would go so much better in our dining room. So, we moved it on over! :)
Thanks for stopping by!!
Join me next Friday for Nurseries and Kids Rooms!! My favorite!!

Beautiful! How awesome that your dad made that table and hutch. That is incredible to me! He did a great job!

Let me know if you want to start letting the kids hang out during the summer. Now that MDO is over I am sure we will need more play time!

Beautiful! I loooove the hutch, and the wall color really sets the room off.

Melanie said...

Thanks so much for the tour. I love, love, LOVE that color on the walls & the table is gorgeous! I love benches & that is so clever to use 2 smaller ones instead of 1 long one.
What a beautiful room!

I meant to tell you last time witht he kitchen that I love your house... loved the old one too. I only saw it once when you hosted the shower for Kyle Anderson, and Lily was just a baby. But! I have never forgotten your old house... my ideal style!
