Our First Home: Dining Room Reveal


When going through the buying process with this house, we obviously had certain visions in our head with how we would want the house to look like.  Then, we moved in, ran in to a plethora of problems (some of which we weren't financially prepared for in our budget), had a busy summer, and then decided to just work with what we have (for now).  So, I left the green paint up (I was wanting a subtle yellow) and we'll update our dining room table someday in the future.

For now, we are really happy with our dining room.  It is our only completely finished room in the house.  And now we are sharing it with you :)  Mind the creatures ;)
