Here's a look at my entry and dining BEFORE we moved in:
Nice. Little too Tuscan and dark for me.
Here's the light fixture that was in the dining room. Pretty. And formal. Not me.
Here is the new light fixture:
My newly striped walls:
The photos of my parents when they were little, both on horses. I love these photos.....
The light fixture was another overstock purchase and I loved the price! You can find it here. Total pain to install in my opinion. Definitely need two people. You have to shove the 3 wires through 40'' of metal rod. Surely the worst part. TIP: Measure how long it will hang before you order this. It was going to be about 7.5 feet high with my 12foot ceilings. Lame for a dining room. We fortunately had matching left over rods from our entry way light and were able to extend it or we would've been in trouble.
Left to do in this room:
-Look into drapes. (Can you do drapes with shutters?)
-Recover chair seats in fun fabric. (What color should I do. I need some POP!)
-Buy fun upholstered chairs for the end and head of table.
-Need a buffet. (Fun color maybe?)
-Rug or no rug?
-A huge horse photo on opposite wall maybe?
-Centerpiece. (I stink at centerpieces)
I'm looking into some horse photographs for the opposite wall from my parents photos. Here's some ideas. Which one do you like?
Or Option 3)
I don't know why, but horse art is on my mind. I guess I'm living out the whole "I want a pony and I want it right now!" phase. Whatever I do, I need to go big. Huge art/photos are another obsession of mine..... Which one do you like? Or am I crazy? You can tell me if I'm crazy. I promise I won't be mad. I probably won't change though, cause that's the thing about crazy people. They can't change crazy!
