Home Tour: Formal Dining

I started our home tour a while back but, never finished it.  Here's to going room by room over the next handful of weeks!  Maybe by then both of the bathrooms will be completed!?  Ok, at least one will be for sure!

So today I'm sharing with you our formal dining space.  I must admit I use the word "formal" loosely because this table tends to be more of a catch-all on most days - diaper bag, purse, mail, etc. However, when we have guest over or have a party it is used & used well!  We've had so many meals around this table with family and friends & that makes my heart happy & thankful we created this space in our home.

When we purchased our house it was a formal living space with walls all around, a cased opening in the entry hall & no overhead lighting.  So, we knocked the walls down, re-textured, painted, installed electric & added a chandelier.  Today it is our "formal" dining room!

Matt built our farmhouse table {DIY plans here} & I bought the chairs at First Monday.  The buffet I found years ago at a yard sale, the wood/metal table was purchased off of Craigslist & the small black wooden table that holds our adult beverages was also purchased at a yard sale!  Most of the decorations are from our wedding, items passed down from my parents or things I've picked up at Hobby Lobby, Home Goods... and yard sales.  Clearly, I have a thing for finding bargains at yard sales.  ;)  I hope y'all enjoyed the tour of our "formal" dining room!


  1. This is an outstanding venue, with great and thoughtful staff, and a fantastic chef. The location is well situated. We has been delighted to host our annual event at this event venue for the past few years, and the space has been perfect for our group of roughly 300.

  2. This post is so informative and makes a very nice image on the topic in my mind. It is the first time I visit your blog, but I was extremely impressed. Keep posting as I am gonna come to read it everyday! read this article
