Show Us Your Life - Home Tours - Dining Room

 I'm linking up to Kelly's Show Us Your Life Home Tours - Dining Rooms today.  This is the room in our house that really needs the most work.  I love the wall color and chandelier but I would so love to get a new dining room table and chairs and buffet.  

 My dining room table is a hand me down from a family friend yeeeears ago.  It's more of a breakfast table but it works for now.  

I finally filled my apothecary jars with some fruit.  Makes them look so much better.  

I love the wall color - it's called Sagria!  I would love to one day have white wainscoting on the bottom half of the room.  I love wainscoting.  

I desperately need a new and bigger mirror for this wall.   I need a better picture collage for the other wall there on the left.  I've been looking forever for just the right window treatments.  I'm thinking just a valance would do.  Something like a black and white damask.

Sadly this room gets a little neglected since we don't use it very often.  I dream one day of having a beautiful table (i've already picked out my table and chairs) and pretty window treatments.  

I plan to take a look at more home tours to get some inspiration.
