"Show us where you live Fridays"


So, this week on Kelly's Korner blog she is showcasing Dining Rooms. We are in the process of making our Dining Room into Calleigh new big girl bedroom. We are moving our Dining Room, but I have pictures of what it used to look like and I will update this blog with new pictures when it is done in the new room! But for now, here you go!

This is the view from the door. The room is bright yellow and is decorated with sunflowers. I have packed all of this up(for now) and plan to get it out at another time. I love all of my sunflower things in this room!

This is the view from the other side of the room, looking towards the door. You can see the quilt on the wall. This is a VERY important part of my house. When I was a little girl, my grandma was older and thought she would not live to be able to see me get married. She has made quilts for all of the other grandchildren(who are all the same age as my Mom, she was a surprise!) and they already had their quilts. She worked on this, gave it to my Mom and explained that it was to be given to me at my Bridal Shower. It was such a wonderful thing to open that present and know that she was there with me on my special day. I miss her but know that she still looks after me. This is something that matched my room very well and I treasure that I have it in my house.

This is at the opposite end of the room. This is an old, antique buffet. I have lots of bake ware it it and it is awesome! My grandma purchased this at a yard sale for $10!!!! And trust me, it is worth a whole lot more! It very heavy, but I love having it!
So, now you have seen my "old" dining room! I hope that you enjoyed the tour! I'll get new pics up of my "new" dining room soon!
