That being said, the dining room never looks like this. I sew in here too so my sewing machine and all of my supplies are usually all over the table. There is literally a huge pile of crap right behind me when I was taking this picture. If you want to see the inspiration board I made when I first moved in, here is the link.
I had the chair cushions reupholstered a few months ago. I purchased the fabric before I moved as well but I've been considering having them redone again. I'm trying to get a little use out of these before I change them because upholstery is not cheap. The labor for those cushions might actually be the most expensive thing in this room- even more than the table and chairs together.
This is the view from the living room. Need drapes hung asap! I just realized you can't see my beautiful coffered ceilings in any of those pictures so here is another one just so you can see them. They are my absolute favorite part of my house.
The light fixture that was in here when I moved in was terrible. It looked like a UFO and I wanted to replace it from day one. I have wanted this light fixture for months and stopped to look at it every time I walked through Home Depot. I've even bid on a few on ebay. It's a very cheap chandelier compared to most of them but I feel like I "win" if I save even a few dollars. I randomly did a search for it about two weeks ago and found it at 40% off plus free shipping. I ordered it without even asking Todd if he knew how to switch them. Luckily he did and hung it for me a few nights ago.
