Country Dining Room Decor

I am gradually re-decorating my dining room. I got a new chandelier and put up some country valances. Curt helped me bring up an old fake fireplace mantle from the basement. My folks took it out of an old house they tore down years ago. We used it in plays for many years at church, then finally, I brought it home to decorate our basement. I had been thinking I'd love to have the warm look of a fireplace in the dining room, when tah-dah! I thought of the old fake one downstairs! Curt couldn't believe I wanted "that thing" in my dining room, but I'm enjoying it. I need to do some work on it--still trying to decide what all should be done.

Isn't it funny how our tastes evolve over the years? I assume others have that same experience...

I'm saving for a braided rug now--leaning toward an oval one. Do you think oval or rectangular would look better? I'd love to hear your opinions.

Enjoy your weekend!
