Here’s the Dining Room of The Virtual Home Tour! Let’s jump right into it.
As you can see in the Before picture, the walls are brown. It’s a good space and it was exciting brainstorming ways to fill in our little home.The dining area is pretty small but it works well for Russ and I since we don’t have kids yet. We’ve always figured our condo will be our starter home and hopefully as our family grows in the future, we’ll be able to find another home to fit our needs. For now, it’s perfect.
|We couldn’t find a place for this storage cabinet. After moving it around in our condo for a bit, we found out it works best in our dining room window nook.
Not sure yet about that little green palm tree on the side. It used to be in the patio but the winds lately have hurt it a bit. It looks great in the dining area but it crowds our space. Still deciding what to do with it.
|The wine cabinet has become the place where I put random, but cute, things/momentos I want to keep.
|Made this little macrame plant holder with some jersey t-shirt material. White curtains are from IKEA. The tan curtains were hemmed and made by Russell’s mom.|
|Okay, I don’t know why I’m showing this because we haven’t done anything to this light fixture. However, this is the only light fixture in our condo that I liked. It’s a good little chandelier and it does it’s job. But, my vision for it is to spray paint the metal areas a mustard yellow then add mustard yellow paint to the tips of the glass around the bulbs. That’ll be sometime next year though.|
|Good ole table from IKEA. Russ and I bought this table when we first got married. The chairs were plain wood but we painted them because we like color. For the one year we were in Carlsbad, this table went into storage. We’re so happy to have this table back – it’s like having a brand new dining table (since we didn’t have a dining area in Carlsbad).|
