Our dining room is also a fairly bossy room. It almost demands that we have a round or square dining table, it would not fit a rectangle table. Because of our open concept, all of it's walls connect to other areas so there's no opportunity for an accent wall of paint or wallpaper. There are no windows to dress up with curtains. It has to be a show stopper but leaves us with NO opportunity to make it stand out!
So we had to work with what we've got and added our own show stopping touches . . . like the BARN DOOR! And our new dining room artwork!
I LOVE them and I don't think that I could have found better suiting images for our dining room!
Since I'm on bit of an URBAN BARN love fest I wanted to show you my latest find, these Beautiful Crystal Candle holders. Urban Barn had a recent midnight madness sale 25% off accessories and I grabbed this set of three which came to around $35. I wasn't going to grab them because I already had some super cheap candle holders from Ikea but Lee saw them, and said he liked them too and for Lee to say that he "likes" crystal candle holders is BIG sign from above that I'm meant to have them . . . Lee doesn't like anything to do with candles unless they are in the shape of skulls . . . or motorcycles but I've never seen a candle in the shape of a motorcycle! My sister was happy to receive the old Ikea ones . . . it's win win!
The bowls are from Homesense, I love an angled bowl, for some reason they seem really Asian too me, so we usually have noodles in them, but they work really well for pasta too!
The napkins are just made from some leftover fabric I had lying around!
The plates under the bowls are from Target, I found a pack of 4 for . . . just over $4!
I threw them in the cart so fast I almost broke'em!
So there's our new dining room!!! I'm tempted to say 'completed dining room' but I have a feeling that one day (in the far far future) I'll be changing the simple pendant out for some thing with a bit more sparkle! Definitely not a traditional chandelier but just something with a bit more WOW!!
But that's in the FAR FAR future!!
p.s. Thank you for all the barn door love yesterday. . . and husband LOVE. He is pretty darn amazing, I agree!!!
