Dining Room Reveal

It is finally here...the dining room reveal! Enjoy!


As you can see it is more of a keeping room and definitely the warmest room in the house with the wood pellet stove running all winter long.


This room is perfect for entertaining, we have a big long table (that we so graciously inherited) that every one sits at. Before we had this table I rearranged this room multiple times, never liking the results, but once we got the table the room really started to come together. It was like it was built for this space (thank you Pete and Sandy).


Above you can see how the keeping room leads into the kitchen. That island is where I spend a lot of my day:)




This is the piece my husband built me for Christmas. I love it, and I found the perfect antique drawer pulls for it at Romantique Boutique. I love how rustic the piece is but it's size demanded a big rustic table underneath it. So I showed my husband lots of pictures of rustic work tables, gave him the dimensions and one day later he had built me an awesome rustic sideboard. When we have guests I always like to set up a drink or deserts bar and our new table is the perfect place for that.



I have always wanted a big long shelf in our dining room and adding the big long table along the wall created the perfect space for a shelf. Once again I showed my husband lots of pictures of shelves I love and he built me this shelf in less than a couple of hours. I bought the cubby with the wine in it at the Country Living Fair and I had my husband make the bottom shelf just the right size so that it would fit. Antique crocks and an old toolbox, some of my favorite things, also fit nicely on the shelf.












The old trunk that I bought for $10 at the flea market is one of my favorite things in this room. It has such a great look but also serves as storage. I keep magazines in the old tote on top. This couch is the perfect spot to read because of all the sunshine and the warmth of the stove.

 I hope you enjoyed part one of the dining room reveal, in my next post I will show you the other end of the room!

And I am linking up with The Cowgirl Up Link Party!

  5. Such a sweet house, I love all the pictures. . . You are very lucky to have a hubby to build you nice things. . . (I have to build my own) does the new cupboard he made you for Christmas have drawers or is it false fronts? I love the wood it's made of too.

  17. Megan, your dining room is just perfection. I love everything about it. It looks like such a cozy room with the stove and I love how you added a couch. Everything your husband built is wonderful... the sideboard, the shelf, the little rustic piece. I am impressed with those drawers!! Can't wait to see the rest of the room. Have a wonderful day!

  19. Megan,
    Your dining room is beautiful, made more so by your treasure hunt finds and gifts made with love by your husband. I too, reside in an old (Victorian) farmhouse and enjoy reading others experiences on the same restoration/renovation journey. I'll be back!

  23. Looks wonderful. So happy to be following you. I love new blogs as the ones that have been around so long seem to regurgitate the same ideas over and over. I like fresh new blogs..thanks for sharing. We live in a historical house too- aren't they fun and they never stop giving you "projects".
