This is my dining room right now.. I love the simplicity of the dining table still.. I've had it for 6 years now.. there is a middle extension so it works for up to 6 or 8 at a squeeze.
The room is kind of bigger than it needs to be so i've always had it in the back of my mind to do a built in on that back wall..
I've had this magazine clipping of Eva Longoria's dining area on my inspiration board for about a year..
With the baby coming in October, there are some changes I'm ready to make as I've mentioned.. so my fourth bedroom that is now a guest room will become the baby room then I will transform my basement office into the guest room.. then I would turn my wet bar area in my living room into my office and finally turn this wall into a banquet and storage for everything from the wet bar.. see makes perfect sense right? LOL
You'll get it once i start doing it.

We had a TV built i done when we first moved in and I love it! There is also a built in wet bar in that room that I originally thought was really cool but now after living here for a year and half I realize it's not in a very convenient spot so I am dreaming up an office built in there.. In order to do that, I decided I need to do a banquet/buffet built in in the dining room to move all my glassware to!
Built ins give a clean look which I like in smaller rooms.

I love the look of gray weathered wicker with white pillows..
I'm off to Home Depot to get some white base paint and gray paint to create the weathered look on my brown Pier 1 chairs i bought last year.. I'm going to create a pretty little front porch. See you later and I'll post some photos.. let's see how this goes!!

Spring break, Easter and now my little Isobel home sick, it has been a busy week..
Sitting with my little one after a sleepless night for both of us, I started looking through my saved files on my old MacBook Pro and found these pictures I saved of Laurie Lenfestey's home featured in Country Living. Laurie's business is Bittersweet Designs, lot's of beautiful jewelry and paper goods!
Every room in her home has a feeling of peace and happiness. I love that, such a lovely quote. Thanks Laurie!

I'm Spring cleaning/early nesting?.. The sun is seeping through the windows, the kids are in school and my mother in law and husband left for Ireland yesterday (mother in law gonig home, husband going to a wedding that I opted out of) I am a little giddy at the freedom in my own home and have been dusting, rearranging and kind of loving my new beach art prints (if I do say so myself LOL) So I have changed the pictures in my etsy shop and off I go to dust some more! xo, Elena
