Home Tours - Show us your Dining Room

Linking up again today with Kelly's Korner Home Tours.  Today I'll be showing you our dining room.  I wouldn't necessarily consider this a dining "room" because it's an open space that is connected to our living room.  Similar I guess to a "great room" and a lot less formal than a dining room.  Anyway, this is the area of our house that I love decorate for all of the fun holidays throughout the year. Right now we have it decorated for the Fourth of July! Here is our dining room in all it's glory, ha!

The view from the living room
 Our dining table was the first thing we bought together.  
I love the farmhouse style.

 I got the sideboard for free from a friend! It was originally brown
so I painted it red, did a gel stain over the top, 
and added new knobs from Hobby Lobby.

I'm not much of a fan of kids' toys in the main areas of the home, but 
Hattie absolutely LOVES her play kitchen. She uses it everyday
and often will "cook" while I make dinner in the kitchen.
 We also got this little table for free and I finally got around to finishing it 
last month. I love the personality the stripes add!  The chairs are from 
Ikea and we just painted them white to match the table.
 Hattie's little area :)
 The view from the other side.
 The wreath is from Target and I just layered 
it over an existing mirror I already had.

Oh, it's all so so so cute! I love all of your patriotic decor too!
Man, our house is so boring right now. I've lost all motivation to decorate with all of the moving we've been doing.

Very cute! I like the Fourth of July decorating (even though I'm Canadian! Ha!) and the stripey table and chairs.

As you can tell I'm a few weeks behind on my blog reading :)
