I have start off this post by saying a huge THANK YOU to all of you that left kind and encouraging comments on my last post. I seriously love this community so much and I’m so grateful to have your kindness and encouragement on a daily basis. I have read every comment and it was so uplifting to see how so many of you have felt the same way after moving. I know I’m not alone in feeling that way and hearing your stories really encouraged me! I’m happy to report I did have a bit of a breakthrough moment this weekend when I decided to move our dining table into the room I was trying to use a little sitting space. Putting that table in there was like a breath of fresh air and it definitely started a change in my heart. Here’s how it looks now:
Isn’t she so pretty there?! It was a shame to keep this amazing table in storage. What the heck was I thinking?! This room was originally intended to be a dining room and that’ what she needs to be. I love this SO much more than the sitting area I was trying to make work here–that just wasn’t jiving. This is exactly where that table belongs! It looks so good with our cascade chandelier.
(I always get questions about these dining chairs and I just found them online HERE.)
I also decided to move my sofa table in here and style it with this mirror and olive trees. I love this here! It’s a bit taller than the other table I had in this spot and it fits the space perfectly.
It’s crazy how much different I feel about things after getting this space put together in a way that I love. It really was a breakthrough moment for me and even though it may seem like a simple thing, it did give me a sense of home. I feel so much hope that we can turn this place into something we will love for many years to come!!
We’re doing shiplap in this room starting on Wednesday, so I can’t wait to share how it looks in just a few days! xo
