dining

After moving our new Expedit into the guest room, we had our little old one to deal with. We couldn't decide whether to keep it or list it on Craigslist. I did a little experimenting, and for now I think we will keep in our dining room as a little bar area. I like how I can finally display our glasses and fun ice bucket that have been hiding in our cabinets. The striped tote holds our place mats and other table linens, but I may change that. I'm not sure it really fits in with the dining area.
Also, check out these lovely green vases that I scored this weekend from West Elm. They were normally $30 each, but I got them for $8.47! They still have some available on their website if you're interested, but they cost a lot more than they did in my store. I plan on putting some big, fat peonies in one of them, and candles in the others. I just love them! I think they bring a nice pop of color to our beige dining room.
I also couldn't resist the 11x14 version of this piece. I'm hanging it on the wall over by the bar area. I'm so happy that after a year and a half our apartment is FINALLY starting to come together.
