Three Years on Tiffany - The Dining Room.

The next room in our Three Years on Tiffany series is the dining room, which is attached to the kitchen, and the room that you walk through to get to the office and back porch.
 
I apologize for the quality lacking photos.
 
October 2010.
This is the view looking in from the kitchen on the day that Cameron was given the keys. This house was a short sale and it had been sitting for quite a while.

November 2010
The walls were painted grey and a light was installed. It's no light from West Elm or Restoration Hardware, but it gets the job done for now.
 
April 2011
Was given a kitchen table and chairs by my grandmother, and gave them a nice paint job.
 

August 2011
 Bought the Ikea Expedit and turned it into a bar. Made a gallery wall.

May 2013
Finally decided on a rug for the room after many returns. Was given a china cabinet and gave it a makeover! See before, during and after pictures here. Still can't believe my grandmother and Cameron's grandmother owned the same exact china that they passed down to us!
The picture below is from Mother's Day this year.

And today! Ok, yesterday.
