Revisiting the dining room

So I don't think I've shared my dining room in some time. I haven't made many changes because well I've been pretty content with it and rather focus on other rooms in the house that really need help!
I say this is our dining room, but the reality is if we had an eat in kitchen this would be our breakfast area and I would purchase a much larger table....so there is plenty of room for the guests that we never have.  :)

I got these kooboo chairs from World Market some time around January. I actually bought 4 of these, but I like mixed chairs around the table. I just wrapped an antique french postal bag around the cushion and on the other is a feedsack.

I added my new french chair.  (Please ignore the armoire. I bought it at goodwill over the summer for Reagan's bedroom and since Justin was deployed it has been sitting here.) We will move it as soon as I get her bedroom together.


I still love my european grainsack as a table runner.
The cloche and Mackenzie Childs plate is home to some peach jam I made a couple weekends ago.
I flipped my red check pillows over to display red ticking.






The Mary Kay Crowley painting was a Mother's Day gift from Justin, I framed it myself. I love it, it is just fabulous! I first came across Mary Kay Crowley paintings from Kristi, The Thrifty Gypsy and fell in love I could live inside her paintings!


I hope you enjoyed my mini tour.

I'll be joining the following parties:

I am blown away at how charming your dining room has become! I adore the Kuboo chairs with the cushions. I love the little french style chair added to the mix too. I agree with you on mixing the chairs. Love the red check draperies. Love the grainsack table runner. Love the crock filled with vintage rolling pins. You have done a super job!! The armoire (even though it isn't staying there) is very pretty. You've got great taste.

Just lovely, Michele! Love the chairs. I really like how that painting then brings your eye down to the rooster pillow.
