Dining Room Dreams
Moving to Oklahoma = cheaper rent = Ashley gets to live in a true single family home for the first time = excitement = dreams come true = Ashley realizes she has no furniture = decorating rampage = desire to purchase everything = Ashley becomes poor = Ashley can no longer afford her single family home = Ashley is homeless with a lot of furniture to sell.
So I’m TRYING my hardest to not go down the detailed path above. As you can see, I’m a panic spiral type person.
In all seriousness, I could not be more excited about living in a true house – something I’ve been wanting for a LONG time. Unfortunately, one of the drawbacks of this is that I still am missing a lot of furniture after living in 400-500 square feet for the past 10 years of my life.
One of the best parts of having a new home is having a DINING ROOM. My ultimate desires to have dinner parties, friends over to eat, decorating dining room tables with seasonal runners, etc are all about to come true. As soon as I can pick a table, chairs, rug, curtains, decor, ETC ETC ETC. It’s pretty easy to become overwhelmed and also try to do things on a budget. I’ll be sharing the development of my dining room with you as it comes together – so to start, here’s a “BEFORE” picture, and some of my current inspiration!
I’m definitely gravitating towards printed rugs, light wood rustic tables, and a seating combo of chairs + an upholstered bench. Wish me luck!
