My Dining Room

Since starting this blog, I have moved to a different apartment.  Instead of living in apartment 201, I now live in the same building but in apartment 102.  I renamed the blog Apt 102 but decided to leave the url the same so my visitors still know where to find me.  

I have decided that I am going to do a tour of my home and post pictures of each room for the blog in its very own tab at the top.  The first room to get a tour is my dining room.   

Here is my dining room.

I love how it has turned out but it is not finished, there is still plenty to be done in this room. My dining room cabinet or hutch, whatever you want to call it, is on the left hand side and I need to write a post about that project.  I love it and can't wait to show you guys the final, finished project.

Here is my little Molly, she always has to be somewhere close by her mamma and as you can see in the picture above, she is next to the wall and then in the picture below she had come closer to know, just in case she misses something!

The decals on the wall of the world were ordered at Amazon for $20 plus shipping and handling.  I was able to choose the color I wanted and I chose to go with brown to match my chairs.  The dining room table will be painted white.....on fine day, to match the rest of my furniture but until then it serves its purpose just fine in its current color.

I had to include the Family Rules canvas that I made a few years ago.  I love this canvas so much and am so glad I made it. I will have to post my post from my old blog on the making of this canvas. I was afraid I would end up bald or in a mental hospital from going crazy making this thing. But in the end...I love it and wouldn't change it or trade it for nothing!  Many people have asked me to make them one or sell them mine but I think this is a once in a lifetime project hahaha.

I hope you enjoyed the first part of my home tour.  I will eventually post each room as I finish them (I moved just a few weeks ago and with school and getting sick, I haven't been able to finish the apartment yet).  

I have to say, I never wanted to post pictures of my home until I had everything done but then I realized that our homes are never "done," there is always something that we change or add to so I am just going to post pictures and if I change something or add to it, then I will write another post with some pictures to show you guys.

I linked my blog to one of my favorite blogs.

Và hvað það er alltaf fínt hjá þér ástin mín, og þetta á veggnum er algjör snilld. Mollý er náttúrulega bara alltaf sætust. Sakna ykkar svo mikið.
Love u mamma

I am in love with your furniture pieces and I cant wait to see how you do up the dining room table. The world stickers look great there.

Looking forward to the rest of the tour.
