Where We Live: Our Dining Room


It's time for Kelly's Korner's "Show Us Where You Live Friday" dining room edition!

Our dining room is really nice, but there's not much to it. I love the red color that Brad had painted it when he worked on the house before we met. The walls are plaster, so he said he had to paint it five times to get the color right. He did a good job, didn't he?

We eat supper at our kitchen table unless we have company. I have to confess that if we had not just had company, this table would be full of papers. It serves as our office and pre-filing dumping ground for mail. What in the world does one do with mail? I could do without it myself, unless it's something fun!

The dining room.


This is the view from the kitchen. The living room is to the left.


The view from the den and through to the kitchen. Brad's mom gave me these framed art pieces for my birthday.


The china cabinet. Brad already had this piece in here when we got married. I really love it.


My china is Waterford Trapani. I have Waterford Maeve crystal, but I only have a few pieces.

That's about it! It's really small, and it's one of the rooms I've really done nothing to since we got married over three years ago. I would like to get a new chandelier that has better light (this one is really yellow) and do some different things on the walls next to the large door, but those things on the bottom of a long "this old house" improvement list!

**Originally posted 5/21/09. We haven't changed a thing here, but I added my wish list for the room for this year!

Beautiful room! I agree the red walls are perfect! I thought the real purpose of dining room tables was paper sorting, bill filing & craft projects? No? Thanks for sharing!

Love the red walls. I think they were worth all the painting!

Love your dining room! I also looked at your living room...looks great too! I noticed you all were farmers (the cotton.) We have a dairy farm. I know this is random, but did you all go to a Young Farmer's cookout at Lake Blackshear last summer. When I was looking at your blog you seemed familiar and thought that might be where I had met you.

I've heard that red is a hard color to paint. It looks amazing. I've always wanted a red wall. Love your dishes.
