New Dining Room Art & A Fall Table

October 15, 2013

I recently purchased some art for my dining room. I had been on the hunt for quite a while. Originally I thought I’d like to curate a large collage for the wall, but then once I started collecting pieces, it all just felt like too much. I knew that I’d just know when I saw it, and that finally happened for me last weekend at Ikea.

I take an annual pilgrimage to Ikea with my BFF. She lives south of Atlanta, and I live about three hours north. It’s a great meeting place for us. I was in the frame section to find some living room art that (long story short) didn’t work out when I saw it: the most perfect dining room art ever.

What do you think? I’m completely smitten. At $39.99, I felt really great about purchasing such a large piece of art for the dining room. Scroll down for product details.

In other news, I’ve decorated the table for fall. I normally like to set out place settings, but I just don’t trust my cat, Winter, with breakables yet. I never catch her on the table, but I still just don’t trust her.

Confession: I’ve had these pumpkins out far longer than it’s been acceptable to display fall decor. I can’t help it. I love fall.
