A closer view of our fireplace and mantle. I love how the mantle turned out! I don't know that I would have picked the accessories out by myself, but I love the finished product. A framed family photo is going above the mantle in the blank space. We also splurged and had a ventless gas log installed in our fireplace. I cannot wait for a cold, snowy Sunday afternoon. I have big plans to turn on the fireplace (with our handy-dandy remote control), curl up on the loveseat, and read!
The opposite end of the room. The dining room table belonged to Chris' grandma. Unfortunately she no longer had the chairs, so I have been searching antique stores trying to find some chairs that will work. The two prints are going to be hung on the wall above the table.
The third part of the room contains our piano and the secretary desk that belonged to Chris' Grandma B. While I've been searching through antique stores for chairs for the table, I've also been on the lookout for antique cameras. I have a nice collection started and on display in the secretary desk. This window was wide open before....and a little scary at night! We had blinds installed and a window seat made (same fabric as the chairs). This has quickly become Jenna's favorite spot to hang out! I also have some framed photos to put above the piano.Looking from the piano area back into the fireplace area. You can get a little better idea of the pattern on the chairs and the layout.
