My Favorite Room.....From My Front Porch to Yours

4.19.2013

I am truly honored be a part of Kim's "My Favorite Room" series. I have been a follower of Savvy Southern Style since Kim first started blogging and she has been such a great inspiration to me thru the years. 


In our previous homes the dining room was always the boys playroom. 
I was super excited when I was finally able to have an official dining room to decorate. Being a Stay At Home Mom though meant that I had to be thrifty and not afraid of some elbow work and have a lot of patience.



Many of the items in this space as well as in our entire home are pieces that I have found second hand and spruced up or found at an extremely good deal. 
This vintage print as well as its sister print I purchased off of our local yard sale site. 
They are two of my most favorite finds to date.
Another favorite find of mine which made me truly giddy is this french chandelier. I could not believe the lady that was selling it was basically giving it away. It came home with me for right around $40 and then I purchased some bling to add to it.
A recent change to the dining room involved The Hubster and I removing our old dining room table top that was severely scratched and worn. Building a rustic planked table top saved us from having to purchase a new table.
A new tabletop meant that I had to borrow chairs from our office. I think they have found their permanent home in here now. 






Thanks so much Pamela for sharing your lovely dining room. I just adore that chandelier and I know you do.

If y'all aren't familiar with Pamela's blog please go over to From My Front Porch to Yours and say hi. Pamela is so sweet and is a fellow furniture painter. She is working on her kitchen cabinets now and I can't wait for the full reveal.

You can see all the past guest poster's favorite rooms here. Get comfy first there are some beauties.

I will be attending the Highpoint furniture market in Greensboro, NC with other bloggers the next few days and have a couple posts ready and will do my best to post the top three post on Tuesday, but not promising. That will be the drive home day and then I will get the Wow party ready for that night when I get home.

Have a super weekend and come back tomorrow for a giveaway!
