Dining Room Inspiration

crates and plates

We’ve recently overhauled the kitchen and master bedroom {and parts of the master bath}, and now we’re moving onto the dining room.  We’re getting close to having our first floor “done” {at least if you ask Mike}.  Our plans are well underway, materials are being bought this week and we’re very excited to tackle this […]
