Each day this week I'm posting another room as part of a full home tour. See yesterday's here.
Our dining room is a small space connected to the living room by a wide doorway. I hung the same black-and-white-chevron living-room curtains in its window because it's really just a continuation of the same space. Meanwhile, the wine rack and my teapot collection help ease the transition into the kitchen.
This space, while simple, felt unfinished for a while after moving in because we were eating on a really horribly ugly and cheap table. My dream dining room would have a large wooden slab of a table, a rustic-looking thing with benches on both sides where at least 12 people could easily squeeze in beer-hall style. But we just don't have the space for that yet.
So, for now, I'm quite please with this cute little glass kidney we found in the office section of IKEA.
