Our Dining Room - Currently

Here is a room in our home that I haven't shared completely. It isn't 100% finished but it's come a long way from where we started. Here's what our dining room currently looks like...

and to refresh your memory here is a photo I shared the day we purchased our fixer upper...
and the glorious listing photo...
Our dining room has come a long way but it's still not where I want it to be. For starters I am not in love with the lighting. It's not ugly but I feel it is too small for this space. I chose it at Ikea kind of as a meanwhile fixture. I would love something like THIS from West Elm.
I'd also love a rug and some colorful curtains to take away from all of the brown in this room. I also plan to do a small gallery wall on the wall where I've got two frames right now. 
Our mid century dining set was a craigslist find. I had been searching for one like this for weeks and then this beauty and the perfect price appeared and my husband brought it home after work. The previous owner re-covered the chairs. Love our dining set! 
The centerpiece is one my husband built for our Thanksgiving table and I added some candles and Ikea pots and it is now our dining room centerpiece. Even though this room is not yet where I want it to be, I am thankful and proud of where it is now. We have done a lot in just the first year we've lived here. I plan to share more photos soon as our home evolves because it's an ever changing process.


I would LOVE to hear from you! :)
