Dining Room changes

I had a lot going on this weekend to get ready for a Stella & Dot event that I'm hosting on Friday but that didn't stop me from making some big changes in our dining room...

If you remember, I had removed everything from the dining room in order to create a "sleepover room" for Emma's 9th birthday party sleepover.

that was over two weeks ago and I had still not place the furniture back in... slacker.

This is what I was looking at on Friday... Yes I took the opportunity to deep clean the rug! One item off my spring cleaning list!

Next... I decided that I was ready for a change and brought up my orange and cream zebra print rug (overstock) from the basement. (The basement is more of a playroom and I really wanted to showcase this fun rug)

The table was brought inside from our screened in porch.

ehhh let's take a closer look at those chair cushions...

The green just was not matching the new rug.... off to World Market where I found these great Kavita Chair cushions for $14.99 each

I love the vibrant colors!

Much better! (I love that Sophie always needs to get right in the picture)

and here is the table all set!

I love looking into the dining room and seeing the bright colors!

Here is a side by side of what the room use to look like on a "typical" day and what it looks like now.

  1. Love it! If had a choice of which room to eat in I would choose the room on the right. Love the color you've brought in, it looks more inviting. Well done!

  2. So FuN!! Love Sophie in the shot - the stripes just make her want to be part of them, blend right in! LOL!

  3. Looks great! We love the dog.. Thanks for including Cost Plus World Market.
