a dining room and a house tour

i'm back with more of my house tour!

here is the dining room which is the first room to the left when you walk in the house.

the room is a perfect square which fits my circular dining room table perfectly. i love this round table so much for dinners with friends and game night. a round table is so much better than long rectangles because you can see everyone and talk to everyone.

the blue cabinet between the windows holds my ever growing milk glass collection. on the doors i have taped some watercolors i did on old book pages to bring a bit more art into the space.

i painted the room white so all my treasures and trinkets would pop. this wall is filled with some family pictures, a fabric covered M and a few etsy photographs i have picked up through the years. i cannot believe my munchkins were once that little. at 9 and 7, they still resemble these pics, but i have a hard time seeing the baby faces that are reflected here.

this room is full of thrifty finds which include the blue milk glass cabinet, the recently painted blue low and long buffet, the mirror above the buffet, the chandelier and this white cabinet. oh, and pretty much everything in the cabinet from the gold rimmed china to the bridge tablecloths folded in the bottom section. yay for saving money through thrifting!


  1. Tiffin, where do you find all these beautiful pieces? ie: the china cabinet or the white piece with the linen in the bottom. ps: your munchkins are adorable!

    1. the china cabinet was from an old apt. i lived in and the white cabinet was from a friend who didn't want it anymore. she had left it on her back porch where it got rained on which created all the peeling paint. i snatched it up in a heartbeat!

      all my friends know that i like rough pieces, so they usually keep an eye out for me as well!

  2. I find your website super awesome, I wish you lots of success because you deserve it, good luck and congratulations for this wonderful site!

  3. This blog is so nice to me. I will continue to come here again and again. Visit my link as well.
