Our Dining Room

Recently Ben and I have changed a few things in our dining room. A couple months ago we added the stuff on the back wall. This weekend we FINALLY installed a light! This was very exciting because for the past two and a half years we have had NO light in there. We just never used it unless there was natural light coming in the window. Well, I realized I had invited family over for a 5:30 pm Thanksgiving dinner and that unless we wanted to eat in the dark we would have to do something so I went and picked out a simple light fixture (yes, I know, I am kinda dull with my decorating but to me less is more) and while Ben was at work I had my Dad come over and install the light. That is my version of "getting things done" .... he he he.

So, here is a shot of the room now:

I love the new light ... apparently your Dad wasn't too enthusiastic about eating by candle light:) He did a nice job and I'm anxious to see it. Love you, Gram


i like that light a lot - it looks great with your table and chairs! love those chairs, btw. and i really like how you did a two-tone on the wall with the chair rail. looks really cozy and pretty!!

Looks great. Daddy's are great. I know you will enjoy the light in your dinning room. I still have to get my bedroom light replaced. I guess I have to go shopping first. :) Looking forward to seeing you guys tomorrow.
