Dining Room 90% Complete *pix* ¡VinHaute! Memphis, Tennessee 43948 posts

It's been a room that's been on the backburner for me but my formal dining area is finally show ready! Well.. nearly. I'd like to get a new rug (same style, just different color and smaller size) and would like to attempt a DIY wainscoting next summer in a board and batten style.

I finally got around to hanging the curtains I've had for ages - though I've had some trouble finding a good valance - I though this one would be long enough for my lone window but I think I have to get two more to even things out :?
I was going to make my own cafe shelves but can't seem to find the time - but I found these two eccentric shelves @ Home Goods for $15 ea and just did a spray paint job in bronze
And part of my b'day present was getting a console to store my alcohol - I've got mirrored circles that the bottles sit on. Probably will get some more for the bottom shelf and store a few glasses down there for a little home bar

And while I'm sharing, I may as well add DH's office. Poor guy has been working with a rickety walmart desk for the past two years. I surprised him by putting together a 170 pound desk for him and I painted a pair of cheap bookcases to match. This is just his temporary space til we finish the fourth bedroom upstairs, so for now all I've hung are his old army flags
