The Dining Room So Far!

I'm starting to take one room at a time to tackle the new house!  I thought I would share a few pics from the dining room so far.

I am such a bargain shopper.  I love shopping but it's so much better when you know you got things for a steal!  Here is a breakdown of the dining accessories and the cost!

One of my favorite places to shop is from thrift stores.  Even better when you're in a small town!  The prices there are usually so much better than in the city.  I found these awesome vases for .25 cents each!!  When I unpacked them I took the price tag off and had to look a second time to make sure I didn't misread the tag!  I waited until the flowers were 50% off from Hobby Lobby. 

I found the candlesticks for .75 cents each!  Such a steal.  I spent a little more on the candles so I could get a package.  I figured I would actually use them if I knew I had package!

I absolutely LOVE these pillows!  They were originally $39!!  I got them for $9.95 on clearance.  I love having pillows on the chairs in the dining room.  It just makes it look more inviting and cozy!

Marshall's is one of my newest fav places to shop!  We moved right down the street from one and I am loving it!  I found these great lamps there for $29/each!  You can read more about the red mirror here.

This tray was originally $29 from Target.  I got it on clearance for $7.99!  I was ecstatic about that purchase! :) 

I found these frames from Marshall's for $9.99/each.  I went back and forth on artwork and found the Pattern Pieces series over at Sprik Space.  Check her out she is amazing!!

You can read more about the jute pear here.  It's still one of my favs!

We are so blessed to have had the curtains, table, antique dresser (buffet table) and antique chairs passed down from various family members. A HUGE thank you to all of you for helping to make our house a home.  And another big thanks to my parents who will be giving us their old dining room chairs!

Grand Total for all furniture and accessories $178.42!!!  Woo hoo!!  I love everything about this room, especially since it didn't break the bank!!


  1. wow, those are great finds! How did you score those amazing clearance items?!

  2. I love this! So lovely:) The curtains appear to be a pearly gold, which is what I'm looking for, for my dining room.
