Show Us Your Life - Dining Room!

This week, Kelly's Korner is hosting Show Us Your Life - Dining Room edition!  Well, we have a space in our home for a dining room, but we don't have a ton of room, and we don't have any dining room furniture!  When we got married, we were combining two houses full of furniture into hubby's house.  To say that we have different tastes is an understatement.  But, we are finding our "couple style".  It's slowly coming along.

Here are some pics of our dining room as it currently stands.
This is the view from the entryway.
(Seeing these pics just makes me want to paint the walls!)  I want to so badly, but hubby doesn't want to mess with it.  I am trying to be patient :)  I want to paint that straw chair.  It's wicker - any ideas?

This bistro table is one of my favorite things from my apartment.  The wooden box is from the Four Kings wine that my Daddy loves.  I *might* drink more than the average girls fair share of wine.  Maybe.  I collect all my wine corks.  I'm not sure why, or what I'm going to do with them, but I love them.  The candle holder is one that we used on our head table from our wedding day.  They are scattered throughout the house, I love that they remind me of our wedding day.

Hubby LOVES Texas.  LOVES.  These flags are his favorite.  We have quite a few Texas History themed pieces throughout our home.  Not really my style, but it makes him happy.  He calls this room, "Texas Wine Country".  ha!

Please excuse the messy couch pillows.  I don't know why I didn't take the time to straighten them!  This table was my great grandparents, and I love it.  And yes, more corks.  And a Texas star - of course.
I just love this wall hanging.

I think I would like some darker drapes in here.
This is my favorite piece of furniture in our WHOLE house!  I love this baker's rack.  It has all the things that I love.

Like, My favorite wines and all my cookbooks....

Basically all my favorite decorations from my apartment....
(and of course, more wine corks and a Texas thing...)

My Alpha Chi Lyre, my Grandfather's decanter and some other faves....
And, my favorite stemware!!!!  I also have a few of my wedding chandeliers, and my Tavern on The Green horse and carriage.  It is my Mom and my favorite place, and she ordered that for me when they sold it.

I hope you enjoyed our "dining room"!  We have a long way to go, but for now, it's perfect for us!  If you are visiting from Kelly's Korner, thanks so much for stopping by!

I hope you ladies have a wonderful weekend!
