We have a lot of unfinished spaces in our home -- blank walls, a hodge-podge of hand-me-down furniture, and big empty spaces where "that one thing I want from Pottery Barn will someday be." But! We finally finished decorating the one room we felt we could tackle. A room that really only requires a table and chairs, but still. Our dining room is complete and we love it!
And by staying true to myself, I handpicked each element to make the room feel about 60 years older than it actually is. No surprise.
