Dining Room Inspiration

Our dining room is one room where we will have minimal renovations to do(take out carpet and buff the original hardwood), so I decided to make that room my project right now. I received a gift card for Home Goods from my mother-in-law for Christmas and decided to dedicate it to dining room accessories. I found so many cute things that are fitting to the era and charm of our house. I picked the paint and will (hopefully) be completely finished with everything soon. One thing that helped inspire my style for his room was a picture on a journal of mine. The picture was of a stack of tea cups and saucers. I haven't painted in years, but was so inspired by this picture that I decided to take a crack at it again to create a focal point for our dining room. Here's how it turned out:

Now it's time to find a nice antique wood frame! I can't wait to see everything all together...I will keep you posted!
