I don't get around to doing posts in the "June's Little Home" category very often. We've owned our home for about a year now and we're STILL working on getting things how we want them. I've shared our Mid-Century Morbid Living Room // my "Dressing Room" // Collin's Record Room in the past, but all of them have since undergone pretty big changes (especially my dressing room, I recently sold all the furniture to make room for some vintage things I've had my eye on... it's looking VERY empty haha).
One room I've never shared is our Dining Room. Until recently, I hated it our dining room with a passion. It's sort of an awkward space and I had trouble making the best of it. But with some of our wedding money and some avid Craigslist + antique store lurking, Collin and I gave it a little makeover. (Also, please ignore the fact that I accidentally killed my poinsettias...I'm normally not a plant murderer, that's Amelia's job.)
|*I took a mail break during these photos to add new Pyrex to the cabinet.|
Then I added the new Pyrex and fingerprints appeared on the glass, oops!*
I had nowhere to store any of my glassware and was sort of just stacking it "decoratively" where I could until recently, when I snagged this hutch for an AMAZING price during a holiday sale at a local antique store. Actually, it was the same store where I picked up that starburst clock. It has so much storage and it's just the right size for most of my things. There's not much room for my collection to grow, but maybe that will keep my addiction in check. ; )
Collin actually helps me pick pieces for the entire house but his specific addition to this room was the TV bar. I don't drink but I loved the idea so when we came across this TV and he said he was going to make a bar out of it, I was all for it. He picked it up from the shop the next morning and by the time I'd arrived home from work, he'd taken all the guts out + added the lights. We still have to reattach the knobs + I plan on wallpapering the inside with something subtle and adding some a shelf, but so far, so good! Also, I found that decanter + glass set at a local thrift store for $13, it'll be our first glassware addition to the bar once the inside is finished!
// Also, our MagicBands for our honeymoon to DisneyWorld came in the mail while I was taking these photos and Collin's excited face when he was opening them was too cute NOT to post. So soon, so excited!
