The dining room is one of my favourite parts of our house because of the wall colour! I'm really glad David agreed to it since it ended up looking so good.
The wood railing overlooks the living room.
As you can see the ceiling is vaulted which made painting a fun task! There's also a wood panelled wall with lovely windows.
We've got a few plants here because this room gets sun light ALL DAY LONG. There are 2 orchids, an aloe vera plant and an avocado tree. Yes, an avocado tree...David grew it from seed a few years ago and it is nearly 5 feet tall.
Every item of furniture in the dining room has somewhat of a story to it. My dad found the table at a yard sale and got it for free and the faux leather chairs were given to us by my best friend's aunt. I bought the zebra chairs and stuffed them into my little car, which is actually pretty funny if you had seen my car! The china cabinet was given to us by David's grandma who bought it at an antique shop, moved into her condo then moved it again hours away into a rural home. The best piece in the dining room is my Morning Glory sign. You can read about it's significance here
