Dinning Room

To say its been a hectic month would be an understatement. I gotta admit, this one almost got me. Cramming the toys of a 2 year old and 5 year old into a 3 bedroom condo had me near tears. I thought I would be relegated to toymageddon for the next little while but we managed to pull it together. Don't get me wrong, there is still wayyy too much to do, but for now I am relishing in the fact that our dining room has really come together. The shelf isn't exactly how I would like it, but I feel like those things never are. Or is that just me?

I bought a little more at Restoration Hardware then maybe I would have liked but damn they are doing some great things! And the 25% off helped me to forget the millions of other people who would have my furniture in their dinning rooms as well. Also, once you have it in your own space its always easy to  put your own spin on it and add things to make your room feel more personal. For instance, that paddle on the wall my husband and I found while digging through my Dad's shed a few months ago. The minute I saw it in all its perfectly distressed glory I begged my Dad for it. I couldn't be more in love with it, and it speaks to my country girl lake loving roots. There, not everyone will have a mint paddle in their living room, score 1 originality point for me.

Anyway, thought I would give you an update. Let's hope I have another room done at some point in the near future!
