Show Us Where You Live Friday

Friday, May 22, 2009

So, it's that time of the week again...except I skipped last week (guest rooms), so I guess this isn't quite a tradition yet. A) I was out of town. B) I didn't think you'd want to see pictures of an air mattress blown up in the middle of the living room.

Anywho-- here is our dining room (or the room where a table and chairs sit. If you really want to see our dining table, go back to the living room edition and check out our coffee table.:)).

I love my table. I bought it from Kroger (yes, the grocery store) in college for $120. It's lived in my college apartment, my little studio where I lived when I first moved to DC, and finally made the move here. I don't know if I like it more because it's cute or because it was such a good deal. It's in great shape because, again, we don't use it much. The table is always set like this. I'm sure one day we'll get a big kid table, but it works for now.

I've been wanting to do something with this big wall behind the table, but haven't had the motivation to really figure it out. I'm already getting ideas from some other dining rooms posted on Kelly's blog.

I think this is my favorite piece of furniture that I own. I'd once eyed a similar piece at Pier One and always regretted not buying it. Sometime last year I saw this table/bookshelf on sale and just couldn't say no... The wedding portrait above is relatively new. My mom had it framed as a gift. Again, one of those things that, if left up to me, I'd always want to do, but never take the time to actually do...

We try to keep things around the house from places we've traveled, together or individually. The boomarang is from Tyler's trip to Australia, the wooden flute is from Grand Caymen Island, and the picture above it is a gift from my best friend Lindsey, who took it while traveling in Italy a few years ago. The color's in it are perfect for our place. The small picture of us that you can't really see is us standing on Lake Michigan a month or two after we got married.

So that's it! Thanks for stopping by.
