I spiffed it up with my gold chargers and some plates...I read on Nester that if you leave chargers on your table that you will be less likely to treat it as a dumping ground...I sure hope it works because boy is this ever a dumping ground for me!
I also added 3 brown pumpkins to my cake plate...got those at the Dollar Tree, thanks for that tip, Susie Harris!
I'd also like to show you what I put on some of my plates, courtesy again of Susie Harris...these little homemade tags, aren't they sweet?
I got these 2 little mini vases at a garage sale the other day for $.50 each, I should have bought more, but at the time I didn't know what I was going to do with them...I <3 them!!!
Here's my chocolate brown carpet with some sort of leafy/floral design in it...I love it...although had I really thought it out, I probably should not have gotten carpet for a dining room, but hey this is Michigan and my feet get cold in the winter!
Here's my little round table in the corner...I hide crap under that tablecloth, but shhhhhhhhhh, don't tell anybody ;)
Now, here are my WWYD questions...The furniture, carpet, window treatments and chandelier are all staying...but I would love any advice you have on paint colors or even wallpaper, but I think I would rather paint. There is also a chair rail in here and some sort of design on the bottom...any suggestions for those are welcome, too.
The carpet is chocolate brown and so are the window treatments, the sheers are beige. The chandelier is an Euro sort of design and is sort of taupe, I guess, in color. Oh and any suggestions for my little table in the corner are appreciated, too! It needs help, lol.
PS: Is the chandelier too low??? I know it's not centered, lol, but that I have to live with for now...you know, my dh is an electrician, so nothing electrical ever gets done around our house ;)
