Show Us Your Life-Dining Rooms

It's that time again!  This week, Kelly is featuring dining rooms so come on in and take a look around. 

We have an open floor plan so our living room, dining room, and foyer are all in this section downstairs.  I love the colors in here, dark walnut, pops of red, and all shades of green.  To me, these colors are very relaxing and warm.

Here's a close-up of my current centerpiece.  The container was a jar from Kirklands that I decided to use as a vase.  I filled it up with faux pears as filler so you wouldn't see the stems and added some flowers from Hobby Lobby.  I threw in some feathers too!

I made all the curtains too.  I used green silt fabric that I bought from JoAnn's and lined them with a blackout material.  I hung them up with the hardware from Lowes.  To cut down on the cost, we used large dowels and stained them to match the brackets, clips, and finials.  

So that is our dining room and I can't wait to see all the others.  Have a great weekend!!
