crystal sconces for the dining room

Thank you for all the nice comments on my living room post yesterday!  
:)

So nice to feel like our home is coming together.

Today is just a mini update for our dining room.  
It's crazy to see all the photos from what I thought I wanted this room to look like, to what it is today.


When we first moved in, I had a wrought iron and glass sofa table where the hutch is.  
Above that was a large framed cork board that I planned to have photos of all the get togethers hosted in here.

Ugh.  
Looking back on it, I'm sure it could have been executed better, and we were making do with what we had, but it was not a good look.

The most recent update to the dining room is the addition of some iron and crystal sconces.


Everything- from the sconce itself, to the crystals and candles, were purchased from vendors at Aunt Bee's House.

The sconces were already white, I just went over it again with some milk paint and dark wax to give it a more aged appearance.


The giant black birdcage has moved around a bit.  

Since having it in our living room, it made it's way to the corner of the dining room.
Now it is filled with vintage books and flowers.


I also recently added the card bunting.
It was kind of random- I had a full table of projects, and needed to move it out of the way, so I hung it on the cage, and liked the look.


This room now feels relaxed, romantic, and elegant.
I'd like to add more greenery to the room, so hopefully that will be in the near future, but the new sconces were the finishing touch to the walls next to the hutch.


 Just wanted to show you the update before everything transforms for Christmas!

Happy Wednesday!

  10. What is not to love? A birdcage and white ruffles alone does it for me. You have all that added loveliness and that makes a perfect room! It's just beautiful!
