Before we even moved into our new house, I had a vision of what I wanted our new dining room to look like. I went onto Pinterest and found two pictures that closely resembled what I had in mind. These are the two pictures I pinned to help me decorate our future dining room:
As you can see, I wanted something that gave off the "farmhouse" vibe that we like, while still looking light and airy. It should be noted that I have never before used Pinterest to design a room, but I had a very strong vision of what I wanted this particular room to look like.
Fast forward 9 months and our dining room is almost done! Here is what it looks like today. I apologize for the weird lighting. The flash on my phone makes the walls look lime green but they are more of a muted tannish green.
See that dining room table? It is Adam's latest piece of furniture that he built for us!
He built it in our garage and then the boys and I painted the bottom part white.
As far as the rest of the room goes, it's a mix of items I have been given or have found at local discount stores. This cabinet was a hand-me-down from my Mom, and I placed the whitewashed mirror above it.
The other thing I still want to change out in this room is the overhead lighting. I'm not really a fan of the fake candlestick look.
