I hope that you are all having a great weekend so far.  I just have to tell you that I just got some great deals from my neighborhood garage sale  this week and I can’t wait to show you my stuff at my Twice Owned Tuesday Party.   Please join me because this week is going to be GREAT!!!

Today, I want to show you my NEW dining room!!!

I am excited because, for the seven years I have been married, I have never had a dining room or a dining  set.  When we first got married, we didn’t have a dining room and in this house, we turned our dining room into a living room.  And we turned our living room into a study. 

But when we got  a free dining room set from my Mother-in-Law, I could wait to re-arrange my house. 

I want to show you my NEW DINING ROOM.

I love having a table to decorate.  I showed you here that I got all these items on the table for for only $34.00 .

I added this planter that I got from a garage sale for only $3.

I changed the vase for a candle holder that my MIL gave me and the picture that I got from a garage sale.

Before.  I don’t know how to get a good picture at this angle because of the windows.


After.  I would love to find a hutch to put in place of the mirror.  I will keep my eye open for one.

After.  I love it!!  I liked it before too but I love the change and a table to decorate.

What do you think of the new room? 

Do you like to decorate your dining room?

How often do you change your tablescape?  I know I just decorated it, but I already have new ideas.  So exciting!!! lol.

Have a great weekend!
