Show us where you live Fridays - Dining Room

It's Friday, time for Show Us Where You Live. Today is dining room's. Head on over to Kelly's Korner to see everyone else's dining's a great way to get ideas.
Here is our dining room. It's actually one of my favorite rooms (that we never use). We use it when we have people over and on holidays, that's about it.
Here is our dining room (view from the foyer)

View from Kitchen

Our table that we've had for about 9 years. We got it at Cost Plus and it was one of our first major purchases as a married couple.

Candlesticks from Z Gallerie, chargers and centerpiece from Target (where else?)

Our giant mirror from Expo. I love this mirror and it opens the room up a bit.

One of my favorite features of the room is the recessed ceiling

The curtains my mom made. I love this ivory silk fabric, we got it on sale for about $9/yd.

I took this photo to try and give you a better idea of the color of the room. It looks brown in most of the photos but it is actually a deep burgundy/grapish color. I also love these outlet covers that we replaced. So much better than the plastic white ones in a room like this.

There you have it, our dining room. Next week will be Julianne's room!

Love the color of your room!! I used to have an office/dining room with a similar color - Carob Chip by Pittsburgh Paints. A deep brown undertone purple - gorgeous! Photos are on my blog from the kitchen week. Hands down my favorite color of all time!

Thanks for commenting on my post! You are so sweet and a major self esteem booster!

I can't give all the credit to the shred as I've only done about 3 weeks of it. I think it's mostly from walking. I have to walk a lot at school.

I love your dining room!
I have always thought that the dining room was a good place for a bold wall color.
