Show Us Where You Live - Dining Room

Dining Room Edition

Kelly, over at Kelly's Korner, is hosting a home blog tour every Friday. Today, is the dining room edition. I have participated in this before, but it was almost 2 years ago and I think it was decorated for Christmas. So, I thought that I would play along again!

Our dining room is off of our entry way. This picture is taken from the office. Which is directly across from the dining room.

This is the view from our kitchen.

The view from our stairs.

I LOVE our plantation shutters. They are throughout our entire home and were already here when we moved in. Thank you, previous owners! :)

The custom built table that my wonderful daddy built for me!! There are usually 2 black chairs on each end, but they have been moved to the breakfast table.

He built this hutch for me, too.

When we moved into our house, this chandelier was hanging in our office. But, we thought it would look better in our dining room. So, we moved it on over! :)
I really do love our dining room...even if it hardly ever gets used. It is nice to have when our large, extended families come over, though. Thanks for stopping by!

What does your dining room look like? Would love to tour it!

You have a cute family : )

Lucky you with the Plantation shutters already in place. We've put some in and have more to do. We have ALOT of windows. They do make a room feel complete and I am a huge fan.

Have a nice weekend!
