Home Tour- Dining Room

Hey folks!

Today I am giving you all another peak into our beloved home.  If you want to look around some more you can check out:




I tend to go a little overboard planning a hundred home projects at once. I need to slow down, focus, and handle one task at a time. Currently on my project list is:

A COMPLETE makeover of the gym on the property. Like, down to the studs. You can check out the BEFORE pictures HERE.

New exterior shutters and lighting.

Landscaping (including some privacy trees) when the weather breaks.

Overhaul of veggie garden.

and then I have some on my idea list but may not happen for a while like a laundry makeover and wiring the porch for TV.

Sometimes I have to remind myself that we have only been in our home for a year and that you can’t do everything at once. We are DIYers but there is only so much time in the day, especially with two toddlers and Kevin’s busy work schedule.

The photo on this side table is very special to me. Their is a Christmas movie that my Mom and sister love and we watch constantly. One Christmas my mom commissioned a photographer in the area of where the movie was filmed to go to the family home (where the movie was set) and photograph it. It was a beautiful and thoughtful gift for which I am forever grateful. My mom is always an AMAZING gift giver.

We had this sign made with our last name by a local artist.

That’s it. I actually would love to get a larger table one day since there is plenty of room. The set was actually a housewarming gift from my parents when we moved into our first house which was 1/3 of the size of our current home.

Now I’m off to “spring” clean which can hardly be considered spring with so much snow on the ground.

      My husband got that a LOT in high school when Usher was popular. Too funny!
