January Dining Room + A New Table

Every January seems to bring a clean and clutter free home after the holidays.  I used empty walls as a chance to change up my old gallery walls.  All the art and frames I already had, just mix and matched in new ways. 

We were recently given a new table from a family member which also gives the room a new updated look.  I am quite in love with the new table which also has two leaves!  But even more, I am just thankful for a sturdy table.  Our white one was hanging on it's last leg.

I decided to go with a corner gallery wall on the opposite side of the room.  I like that it draws the eye to our chair.  I have a few empty frames waiting for the right art find.

I kept the mirror where it was after I moved it back here for Christmas.  This wall used to hold my old gallery wall while the mirror hung on the opposite wall.  I cannot believe I kept these walls the same way for almost a year!  I must be growing into my own design taste!

Bringing in a few leaves from the yard gets me excited for spring.  This little vignette is also pretty identical to last January.  It is nice to recreate a familiar January scene.

The house feels fresh, clean, and tidy.  It feels good to have the house in order at the beginning of a new year.  My heart is still as I set goals and feed off of the new year's motivation.  Having a restful home helps me be more productive.

// Is your house back in order after the holidays?  Do you like to change things up or does your home remain the same come the new year?


  1. I love your corner gallery wall. Unfortunately, I don't have a place for one myself, but yours looks great!

  2. Thanks Heidi! The chairs are either thrift store of side of the road! Just collected over time! Hope you find some soon! But your table is coming out beautifully!

  3. Thanks Laura! I have always liked corner galleries as well! Not sure why I didn't try it in this spot until now! :)

  4. We are in the process of redoing our floors and I want to add new dining room chairs . I LOVE. LOVE, LOVE your mismatched chairs! I am going to start collecting now- I frequently see one or two chairs on my thrift store runs, but never a full set - so now I'm off to create a set of loners!!

  5. Yes, give those lonely mismatched chairs a happy home! :)

  6. Didn't I see a pic of some hardwood floor project underway? Love the table. Can't wait to see what your guys are working on.

  7. Yes you did! These pictures were taken actually just a few days before we uncovered the wood! We are currently in our second weekend of repairing a few spots before we sand and refinish. It is taking a lot longer than we expected but we are slowly getting there! I will be blogging all the details when we finish it! :)

  8. I love your chandelier! Do you mind sharing where you found it? Thanks!
