Dining Room Lovliness!

Like promised I will be going room by room to let you know how I completed some of my projects!
This is one of a set of two hanging mirrors. They were originally going to be housed in my master bath but since my master bath is still IN PROCESS they are permanently lounging in the dining area.
They are facing each other on opposite walls. I love what it does for the room! (Got them at Target for cheap!)
These dried plant arrangements have been part of my residence since I was a senior in high school! I was thrilled to find a great spot for them on either side of my bench! The crates were a bonus because I bought a crate on for holding our living room electronics, well, it actually came in a set of 3! So the other 2 fit great in the dining area!
Other side of the bench. I like how they are similar but not identical.
If you know anything about me then you know that I do not sew. I made these pillows out of hot glue!
More pillows to go with my B wall.
My "B" Wall! (B for Bryant if anyone was wondering)

Sneak Peek!

Hey guys! I am going to let you have a sneak peek of some rooms I have been working on! You only get one picture of each room. You will have to stay tuned to get the details of the rooms and how I completed some of the projects :-)

The Master Bedroom: Needs alot of TLC but all boxes are unpacked!

Office/Guest Room: This couch is a hideaway for guests and also serves as another sitting area. The color scheme was sort of chosen by accident but I ended up loving it!

Ryder's Room: He absolutley LOVES his room! He has only cried one night that we have put him to bed :-)

Hall Bathroom: Still a work in progress. Getting there though. We need to replace the vanity doors and paint them dark brown. Ohhhh awwww!

Hall: This is the display wall for Ryder's artwork! Zack and I have decided this is one of our favorite projects.

Entryway: There is not a lot of space to create much here but I still had fun doing it.

Front: I tried to create a door hanger that would work for all seasons.

Dining Room: My "B" Wall. I had a BLAST creating this.

Living Room: Do you see Ryder waving to you?

Breakfast Nook: I love all the sunshine that swarms through the windows here each morning!

Kitchen: Still a work in progress. Gotta work on those upper cabinets. I have an idea though :-)
 Stay tuned for more details to be revealed and best practices! We had some failed projects but we had a lot that turned out wonderful!

Quick Update: Painting Done

My "Warm Apple Crisp" paint color turned out blending perfectly with all the tile and cabinet colors! B E A U T I F U L.
2nd attempt at painting the hall bath was a success! I love love love this color we concocted from leftover paint. I am thinking browns and greens with accents of white??? eh? eh?
