the one where i kick my week off

I have so much to share with you this week.  I just hope I can get my act together to type up and schedule posts!  To say that things are busy, busy, busy around here would be an understatement.

To add to the madness, I have been on a kick lately of trying to redo the house decor.  I am in the mood for change, especially in the kitchen and dining area.  I am in love with our pub height table, but I can't help but look at other kitchen tables.  Take for instance when I saw this kitchen table, I just about died and went to heaven.  Seriously, how great would that look in the dining room?

Did you see that drawer underneath for added storage?  Seriously, I am a girl who can't get enough storage...especially in my kitchen area.

I also like the idea of a rug in the dining room.  For instance this one and this one.  Oh how I love them!  Did I mention I have a thing for stripes lately?

Unfortunately the budget isn't up for such big changes.  I am, however, saving pennies to hopefully buy a new chandelier for above our table.  I have been searching and searching for just the right one.  I found this one, which I love the shape and size of.  I wish it came in silver to match the rest of the lighting.  But then what kind of DIYer would I be if I didn't find a way to make it into what I wanted?  A little spray paint, some elbow grease and maybe a few other personal touches and voila I can already picture it now!

In the meantime I am making other changes in other areas of the house.  For instance Mabry's room which under went a major transformation in the last week.  Tomorrow I will be sharing all kinds of photos and fun details with you about her room!

  1. I LOVE the 2nd rug you posted...they match my dish set and lots of decorations I forgot I had in the storage unit! One of the Christmas presents my parents gave us/me was a chandelier very similar to the one that you LOVE, except they bought it at Home Depot. But then again you are so creative, I know that you will be able to make that bronze chandelier silver with just some elbow grease! Can't wait to see what Mabry's room looks like! Happy belated Birthday Mabry!!!
