Dining Room!

Today Kelly from Kelly's korner is doing a dining room tour! I just painted our dining room and I LOVE the way it turned out. It's not the biggest room in our house but we do spend a lot of time in there especially since we don't have an eat in kitchen.

 
Here's our dining room table with our fall centerpiece and the table set. 


Our huge chalkboard that I put our weekly menu on.  I also just painted two walls in our dining room a robin's egg blue color.  I LOVE the way it turned out.

This is the wall and door way that goes in to our kitchen.  I made this memo board/picture holder at a craft night with my friend using a old shutter!  Our shoes go in the crock because we have little dogs that like to hide our shoes :)

These plates are on the same wall the doorway leads to our kitchen. 
 This is a cabinet that I got at a yard sale for $30!  It is solid wood so my friend Sabrina and I sanded it down and repainted it.  It is my favorite thing in our dining room!

 Here's a close up of our BIG chalkboard.


 Our house was built in 1920 and it has some quirky things about it including that all of our heaters have these heater covers. This is the one in our dining room. 

I hope you enjoyed our dining room tour!  I can't wait to see all of the other dining rooms today.  Happy Friday!!

Your dining room is really pretty! I love the light blue color of the walls! That is such a cool idea to have the shutter for mail and stuff! Love it....

What great fall decor you have....

I really like the color of your dining room and your fall decor. But, my favorite thing is the chalkboard with the menu. Such a clever idea.
