More Decor Updates In The Dining Room

As you read this, I am more than likely covering my little grandson, aka Peanut, in hugs and kisses!  I have been posting photos on my Facebook page so be sure to head over there after you are done here.

Of all of the rooms in our new home I'd have to say I am enjoying decorating the dining room most of all.  Of course I am now 99.9% finished so, next time, another room could be my favorite LOL.  But when you consider that we moved in a bit over 2 months ago, the dining room has seen some major transformations already!  
It's gone from this
To this
To this! 
Do you see one of the new additions?
How about now?

Mr. B and I knew we wanted to add 2 more chairs to the dining set and I was sooo excited when I saw that Cost Plus World Market had their furniture on sale for 25% off! (actually, I see that the sale is still going on!) I high tailed it to my local store and picked up 2 of the Verona chairs that match our set. Luckily, they were still in the box in my car because, the next day, Mr. B saw the ad and upon discussion we decided to take them back and get two of the Greyson chairs.
Perfect choice if you ask me!
I believe they add just that right amount of elegance without being stuffy. 
The new chairs aren't the only change in the room. I had been keeping an eye out for "something" to go over the buffet.  A mirror, art, etc., I just knew that perfect "something" would let me know it was right when I saw it.
And by golly, it did!  Right next door to my Cost Plus World Market is a Ross store.  After I loaded up the second set of chairs I thought I may as well stop in and take a look around.  I rounded a corner and Voila!  There she was!  
THE PERFECT SOMETHING! And, at less than what I had budgeted to pay too!
The aged silver compliments all of the brown tones in the room without being too contemporary.
And, the size is just right for over the buffet.
I love the design on the frame too!
Now for the final decor update for today! When I saw this 3-piece mirror set in the Target ad, 

I had knew I had to get it!  Am I glad I didn't hesitate!  It was the last one in stock at my Target!
Just the right thing to fill in the wall between the drapes!
Each frame has a different design with the middle one mimicking the pattern on the drapes! Squeee!  Perfect, right? 

I am still on the lookout for a different table to go under the front window to complete this room but, it can wait.  
That spot will soon be filled with a Christmas tree anyway!

  25. Kathe, everything is coming together so wonderfully. I love the new chairs. Mixing things up a little is so more eye appealing to me. When we moved into this home we purchased a new dining set. Later I bought two red checked parson chairs for the ends. I love them! The mirrors are absolutely perfect! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
