Dining Details

Well now that the dining room is coming along, I felt that we needed a few details to make it feel a bit more lived in. Especially because we are still dealing with some very incomplete rooms that you have yet to see, it's imperative that I distract myself from their existence at times.

As you recall the room looked a bit bare:

better, but bare. I knew exactly what I wanted on the wall next, a mirror! I looked several places like Hobby Lobby, Target, and Lowes but could never find that perfect mirror. They were either too narrow, too big or too round. Then I went to the Home Goods store and struck mirror gold, what do you think?

And that weird photo angle...that was on purpose...really.  It gives the photo character lol.

Then I ventured on over to Target to pickup some additional touches like these beautiful place mats:

These Fieldcrest Matlasse window panels:

and these curtain tie backs...or not quite tie backs. I'm sure they have a real name but here they are:

 Oh, holdbacks, that's what they're called

And remember these vase fillers that I bought a while ago:

Well those along with these leafy things:

created quite a nice look.

Well a look that I can accept enough to move on to another room...for now at least :-)


I'm linking to French Country Cottage...Go visit her!
