Progress: Dining Room (Kinda)

Ok, so this post is supposed to be about our Dining Room; however, we have no dining table nor chairs. Instead of using this space as a traditional dining space, we’ve decided to use it as my husband’s study. Since he’s an avid Bible scholar, his collection of Bibles and inspirational books are proudly displayed, as well as art and accessories that affirm our faith. After all, God is the reason for this beautiful home we’ve been blessed with! It seems only right to honor Him at the entrance of our home and set the right atmosphere for the rest of our spaces.

We love this room so far! Of course, I hate the white walls. Eventually, we’ll add some more art and accessories and replace the old dining light fixture that we took down. Remember, you don’t have to pay full price for anything (unless you want to). I try to save $ on whatever I can, whether it’s buying on clearance, using coupons, or buying from unexpected stores. Need help finding some affordable options? I would love to help!!!
