Dining Room...99% Done!!!

After a bit of hard work (between football games) on Saturday, Andy and I got the dining room back in order.  We love how it all came together!

I say we are 99% done, because we still plan to recover the x-back dining room chairs.

The seat cushions are an off-white (fresh from the furniture store a couple of years ago), and it has always bothered me that they aren't a true white.  I have a coordinating mustard fabric that I think we are going to use on the chairs that will help to repeat yellow in the room again.

I also am planning to make my first table runner for the dining room table.  I tried out my new sewing machine for the first time this weekend, and it wasn't too disastrous, so hopefully I can brave the table runner project soon. 

The last thing that we will probably eventually need to purchase is an area rug to sit beneath the table.  It isn't awful without one, but I think the room will feel more finished with one.  I have an idea of what I want (someday), but that will have to be budgeted in along with everything else we need for the house.

For now, I'm just liking that the dining room feels "homier" and more Bozeman-ish. 

Happy Labor Day Holiday!
