Fall dining room 2014

Fall has finally arrived in my dining room.  This has not been an easy task with that pesky bathtub in the way.  It wasn't easy getting this done on Sunday as we were working on the master bathroom too.  I am proud to announce that we finally got the shower area all tiled and now we need to finish the tub area. I also managed to get a little decorating done on the side.

So here are the pictures of the dining room table.






Next is the buffet area.  I decided to keep it simple this year.





I have an old sofa table that I still need to fix up.  I am thinking about adding a shelf down below and painting it black.  Right now it is holding my left over table decor that I will probably use on the covered deck area.



I was able to get the butler pantry area done also.




Now for a sneak peak at the master bathroom shower.  It hasn't been grouted yet.  I am thinking about using a darker colored grout which I will go get today.  I can't wait to get this bathroom done.  It has been two months now.



I thought I would close with a picture of my tub.  Right now it is coming in handy for holding some of my fall decor so my little dog Kolby can't chew on it.  He loves to chew on my silk flowers.


I am pretty sure that I am the only person right now that has a bathtub in their dining room.  This needs to be out of here before Thanksgiving.

  1. Wow- your dining room looks fabulous- love the Tuscan wall scenery you have there too! Your floral arrangement is beautiful! The master bathroom is wonderful- love the tile choice. I'm pretty sure you are the only person with a bathtub in the living room and that is full of pumpkins, leaves and flowers!! LOL...

  3. Gorgeous dining room! I love the back mosaic, very Italian, I think. The buffet is lovely too. The table setting with the pretty plates is perfect!
    Happy Fall week.

  6. Everything is absolutely gorgeous! I love the bathtub in the dining room. Been there, done that!
    The shower is beautiful. Be careful, however, if you have hard water and choose dark grout. The hard water (with soap) will cling to the grout and make it look dirty when it really isn't. Believe me, that's not somewhere you want to go.

    1. I decided to get a medium color. Hopefully I can get the shower area grouted this weekend. We put a much lighter color grout for the tiled wall at our vanity but I thought it looks too light.

  19. Wow what a beautiful warm room if this doesn't say Fall nothing does. Even the mural and the color of your walls are so warm and hearty looking.Although Your photography skills are excellent never saw the bathtub coming not even in the reflections but to keep family members happy (MOM) somebody with big muscles needs to haul it out o your dining room might make interesting conversations at Thanksgiving.Susie

  21. Hi, Jody! Stopping by from Say G'Day! What a gorgeous home you have and you've done a beautiful job decorating for Fall! We're 7 year empty nesters, with our first grandbaby on the way in December. If it's any consolation, we did a major reno about 9 years ago and our entire first floor was torn apart for 5 months! It's a process, but it's so satisfying in the end! Good luck with the rest of your bath update and Happy Fall! :)

    1. Thank you! It has been just over two months on the bathroom redo. The tub is in the bathroom now and the shower enclosure is on order. Not much longer and I can take a shower upstairs instead of going to the basement bathroom.

  27. It looks very festive, well done there! I have a question - since I know you're into decor and home improvement, do you know any home expert flooring company, preferably based near Manchester?
    Thank you in advance.
