Dining Room Artwork

You know when you see something, fall in love with it, and then you don’t even want to check out the price because you have a pretty good idea that it’s waaaay over your budget? It happens to me all too often. But, I will say that sometimes it’s fun to try and replicate a look, for less.

This exact problem happened to me when I came across these fabulous lemon prints from Wisteria:

They are called the Ferrari Lemon Wall Art Set and are a whopping $749.00. Yikes. So, I set out to find something similiar, for much less. And, I’m happy to report that I found these prints, on art.com, for $9.99 a piece! They all aren’t lemons, but still!

Farmhouse Table – check!

This post will be short and sweet, as Kyle and I were away at the rainy and wiiiiiindy Oregon coast this weekend and I’m trying to throw myself together and prepare for the week ahead.

With that said, we checked a big thing off our dining room To Do list this weekend. Our farmhouse table is complete and I am ridiculously anxious to move it from Sweet Home, into our dining room. The table was made in Sweet Home from old barn boards, which is a small detail that I love since Sweet Home is the tiny town that Kyle grew up in. It’s like we’ll always a have a piece of his hometown in Portland.

Here it is:

A few things left to do – stain the legs to match the rest of the table and possibly put a protective coat of polyurethane on the top. The table is 4×6, which might be a little large for our current dining room, but I plan on having this baby for a long time and thought bigger was better in the grand scheme of things.

Now….it’s time to start decorating! Happy Halloween week to you:)!

Amber, congrats and I’m hoping you’ll share some before/after pics of your nursery with us. Happy painting!

In other news, I have a few more great giveaways slated for November, so stay-tuned! And, I’ll be sharing some dining room updates with you on Monday as well. Also, I’ve been on the hunt for a yellow fabric that somewhat resembles this design:

But no such luck thus far…any ideas???

Cheers to a great weekend!

Fabric…for kids!

I’ve been on the hunt for fabric for our dining room, and I’ve come across some adorable kids fabric along the way. Even though Kyle and I are a looooong ways away from having kids, these prints stopped me in my tracks and I just had to share.
