Dining Room + Great Room Updates

I got some new curtain panels from Pier 1 Imports this past week. The peacock blue were just a little too drastic, even for my taste! I still have a plan for the old curtains (thinking maybe my home office), but I needed something more neutral for our living room/dining room.

So what do ya think?
Pretty gorgeous material, huh?

And a hint of orange in the new curtain panels… looks great next to my Barcelona Orange Table that I finished last week! If you missed that post, click over to see the details. The dark wax is just delicious with that orange!

And I still need to start this project. Urgh, someday I will find the time.

What’s next on my list for this room (besides paint that dang piano)? Hopefully purchase a rustic dining table. Isn’t this one from World Market just dreamy? $700 so it ain’t in my future any time soon, but a girl can dream.

OH, and we got a new 42 inch flat screen television in the great room. No more huge bulky tv in the corner that was an eyesore. The table I used to have in my dining room, then my craft room, now here. Not sure if it’s staying, but I’m happy for now!

I put the same curtain panels in this room as well. Goes perfectly with my brown flowered rug from Lowe’s. Just LOVIN’ the new look. Everything seems to flow again!

    I like how the curtains in the dining room tie it all together. I want to paint my piano too, maybe we should do it together and make it a challenge/link party. ;) It is a nice feeling when the rooms flow together and you can enjoy the rooms instead of cringing everytime you walk in and see the things that bother you.

    Hi Erin! Love your new curtains! Colors look really great with your wall color and wood tones. Your dining room looks so inviting, your dinner guests must not want to ever leave!! Have a wonderful day :)

    Those are the colors that I can “live” with! I am so relaxed around them, and have similar in my LR & DR. However, I LOVE the pattern of your’s. Can I ask where you found them?

    And btw, your site’s messages and updates are the 1st ones I look for in my e-mail. I am so glad I found you…lol! The site is so much fun and full of info. LOVE it!

    Teri :o)
