It's official we have left behind our first home.
We are saying goodbye to our first cottage bungalow.
So to continue on with our tribute to our first home & all the projects we did,
we are bidding farewell room by room.
~ Our Dining Room~
We updated the dining room in stages to save on our budget.
In time it came together just as I hoped.
If you would like to see the before (or somewhere in the middle) you can go here.If you go...beware....it was in my early blogging days & those photos are not the best!
Come on into the dining room & enjoy good food, family & friends with us.
The dining room & kitchen for me are the heart of the home.
In this house our kitchen was a little tiny, but the dining room was the saving grace.
This is the view from the quaint cottage kitchen into our dining room.
Directly off the kitchen & dining room is our 4 season back porch, this is the view from there.
You can also sneak back into the living room through the door in the corner.
The dining room turned out to be one of my favorite rooms in our first home.
I will always remember the first time we had our family over after all the updates.
It will be one of those cherished memories that will last forever.
I finally had a dining room that reminded me of home.
Growing up the dining table was where it all went down.
My family always had Sunday dinners at my Mom & Dad's.
Anyone & everyone was always welcome...the more the merrier.
We shared so many memories at my Mom & Dad's dining table.
Boy, I bet that table could tell some stories.
My Mom LOVED to entertain!
The table was ever changing with the season.
We shared good food family & friends.
We laughed & sometime cried & sometimes laughed so hard we hard cried.
Had family game nights.
The dining table was where I can remember planning our futures.
And ultimately bringing home the perfect guy to meet the family.
Then one day soon after, knowing that guy was the perfect fit at the dining table.
So, for me the dining room & dining table really are the heart of the home you see.
Where would all my memories have occured if it weren't for that dining room?
I think those memories helped to mold the person I am.
I hope one day my dining table has that effect on someone.
What is your favorite room in your home?
Is it the dining room?
What do you like most about your dining room?
Do you have a room that speaks to your soul the way my dining room does for me?
Hope you all are having a great week!
I promise, soon I will be posting the first progress pics of our new home
& our next major renovation journey.
I hope you will join us this year as we take on our biggest renovation yet!
