Ahhhhh...The Dining Room

Hello readers!  Whew, I know it's been a while, but once again I have a good excuse!  Being pregnant takes so much of your energy and I just mustered up enough to put this post up BECAUSE I am so excited that we FINALLY bought a dining room table.  YAY!!  We have lived here since December 2010 and have a very nice dining room that has sat empty, or well sort of empty...Exhibit A:

Yeah we still have boxes that MAY need to be un-packed...Oops! :)  And then just random crap.  It's quite embarrassing since you see this room off of the foyer when you walk in! But let's focus on the good stuff.  It's not the biggest room but big enough for a 78" table and 6 chairs and a possible buffet or dresser that looks like a buffet.  Our table is being delivered tomorrow!  Yes!  Can't wait.  Anyways, here are a few more pictures of this room.

Love the chair rail that's already in there for me so I don't have to do it :)  We will be painting the wall under the chair rail white and we will re-paint all the trim a crisp white.  The color above the chair rail will be a beautiful blue color.  We are going to choose a very light blue since the table we bought is a dark coffee color.  Look at this AWFUL light:

Who the heck would put that in a formal dining room?  Yuck.  Luckily my mom has a chandelier that she doesn't need anymore and I more then happy to take it off of her hands.  It just needs a little spray paint.  Look at the fabulous bay windows:

I'll obviously do some fab curtains, just haven't decided what color/pattern.  Here is one more view of the dining room that faces a little hallway that leads to the kitchen.

Thinking of maybe painting the hallway the same color blue as the dining room just to tie it all together.  Then I'll be adding some fab accessories; beautiful table runner, center piece, some art work on the walls with maybe some molding, ooooohh or maybe some pattern wall paper??  Wow, so many ideas! :)  Liam and I are headed to Pensacola tomorrow for a week, so sadly I won't be able to do anything with the room till we get back.  It's our last little "vacation" trip before he starts school!! (Oh, sorry, can you sense the excitement in my typing?) :)  

Once we get the table in, I'll snap a photo so ya'll can see it!  AND we got an awesome deal, which is just icing on the cake.  Mmmmm, cake.  Sorry, got side tracked.  I'm pregnant, I like cake. 

Have a good weekend everyone and I'll do a quick little post tomorrow once we get the table!
