When we bought our house it did not come with a dining room rather an eat in kitchen. While we enjoy being able to eat in our kitchen, we did not enjoy the messy dishes and countertops staring at us and more importantly our guests as we ate dinner. This led us into converting our front office into a small but perfect dining room.

The Painting Saga
We have a Dining Room
Today our dining room is feeling more lived in and that thrills me. The chandelier and chairs will soon be changed out for a lighter, fresher look. We are also searching for the perfect map (found one but its a bit too expensive) or wall art to replace to the tree piece which we still love but think it looks a bit small. I am on the hunt for the right rug to add just not sure what color/style to go as of now.
Adam recently added corner shelving over our air return "box" and with a few accessories and plants, the entire space is looking much better!
Take a look at our Dining Room:
Chairs: Target (I purchased these chairs 3 years ago, looks like the price has gone up a bit since.)
Chandelier: Ikea (Cannot locate the exact one online but the link shows you a similar one.)
Tree Art: Target (Again, cannot locate the exact piece but linked up a close option.)
Colden Painting: Lesli DeVito (This was Adam's Christmas present from me and now we finally have the perfect spot to display Lesli's beautiful work of our dog.--I was so happy to have found Lesli and her talent thanks to this post from Modern Jane. A fun little side note Lesli lives not far from us and often sells her pieces in one of our favorite day trip places :) I highly suggest viewing her work as well as her beautiful house.)
Corner Shelving: Lowe's
Tree and plant: Lowe's
Watercolor prints: Etsy
Owl: Little Shop in Keene, NY (We bought on our anniversary trip)
Hour Glass: Michael's (bought on clearance)
