Texas House : Dining Room

I mentioned in my last past that I'm confused about the "boob light area" because I have a dining room.

Here's what it looked like with their stuff :


And here's what it looks like with ours :


I still need to 'finish' some things in there, but I'm not exactly sure what I want.  I'd like something to flank that pottery barn mirror on either side (It was our house warming present to ourselves.  I am all about DIY, but we had a coupon and free shipping and working with mirrors on a DIY project with Kalia just kind of seemed like a nightmare!).


You can barely see a glimpse of Kalia's bench through the hallway there.  You walk into the house, see Kalia's playroom (that's coming up soon!), then the dining room, then you walk into the kitchen.

The buffet needs to have something up on the walls above it too, but what I have leaning against it works for now.  At the old house we had a mirror above it, but that seemed like overkill on mirrors here.


I leave the dining room table set because it makes me happy.  I got these napkins and placemats from Serena and Lily a little while back on clearance (pretty sure they're still there!) and they tie in with the pillows on our two chairs in our living room, so I feel like it helps the house 'flow' a little bit better.


So that's it, our dining room.  See why I'm confused about the boob light area off of the kitchen?

Happy Friday guys!  I'm training for a half marathon right now, so my only plans for this weekend are to not die of heat exhaustion while running 9 miles in the morning!  This Texas heat thing is no joke!  I have some projects in mind that I'd like to get started on, but I'm generally pretty wiped from my long runs.  And Kalia.  Kalia wears me out too!  So we shall see!

Hope yall have a great weekend!

  1. This heat has been crazy! We have been staying indoors mostly, not even going swimming at the gym cause its just so hot! I think above the buffet a big picture would look good ( ikea is out there in Frisco and they always have some great prints) Or maybe several different canvas size prints of your family. Just an idea :)

  2. Great minds must really think alike! Shawn and I have already picked out a mirror for our dining room (it's from ballard) that looks very similar to that one. We are going to put it above our buffet, which is really the only wall in our dining room. Lucky for Shawn we have a lot of open space and not many walls for stuff. Less stuff = less $$ and less holes! ;)

  9. Woah! I'm really loving the template/theme of this site.
    It's simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's very difficult to get that
    "perfect balance" between superb usability and visual appeal.
    I must say you have done a awesome job with this. Additionally, the blog loads super fast for
    me on Chrome. Outstanding Blog!
