Oh this summer, like all others, appears to be flying right by. So many things I want to do, but at this point… some days… I feel as if I should just start decorating for the fall. Ha! I haven’t been posting much about my home, or anyone else’s home for that matter… and thought it would be a great day to do so.
I need to throw out there right now, that I am a stay at home mama to a 26 month old and a 10 month old, as well as a 7 month old pup. It is very rare our home looks this clean. Heck, if you could only see what is behind me in these photos… ha, you’d get it. I try very hard to make our home a home, but within the lifestyle my family is living. I can’t get too bent out of shape when my family is that young.
Our dining room was the first and only room we painted when we moved into our home a little over 3 years ago. We had intentions of painting other rooms quickly too, but life got busy… and those rooms were painted eventually. I always wanted to attempt an accent wall with stripes. For whatever reason, we chose to do it in our dining room. I love it by the way. This room is my neutral color based room, with some greenery, natural textures, and pops of blue.
My most recent project was completing the wall above our buffet. I did a botanical look and added a rustic metal sign (with a white wooden backing) that reads: “They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts.” Acts 2:46. Big shout out to Jason Brown Metalworks for the sign & my incredible sister in law for the backing…
Our dining room table is an old piece given to us by my parents. (I want to say it was my mom’s grandparents… so my great grandparents) It was my parents first dining room table… so it was meaningful to be used as ours too. Gabe and I painted and stained the table & chairs to match. I added some chargers, heavy duty plastic blue plates, cloth napkins, & different blue bottles on top of a lightly floral runner as my focal piece on the table.
Check back in a few months to see how I tweak the decoration in preparations of fall. Please leave some love in the comments below… I’d love to hear some feedback or answer any questions you might have!
