This dining room, as small of a space as it is, has been a thorn in my thumb for so long. It seems no matter what I try, it just doesn’t seem to come together like I want or envision.

I just decided to go ahead and share it with all of you lovely readers – in hopes to get some encouragement, advice or any constructive criticism you might have to offer.


My husband plank over the closet doors (something I saw on pinterest) and sort of disguise the 2 closet doors so they would blend in a bit better.


The window mirror is my favorite part. We had a handed down mirror sitting in our garage for quite some time. We attempted some mirror antiquing methods until it felt right.


Currently, I have some dried lavender from our garden in a thrift store vase, and a cutting board Kevin made from old wood, on top of a vintage lace table runner.


We did have it in our living room for awhile, and I adore the look of the natural chunky fibers.


Strangely enough, this is one of my favorite spots to decorate in the house. I can keep it sweet and simple and rotate often.


The hanging mason jar light fixture is always an instant eye catcher for guests at the door.
