My Dining Room

Lately my dining room has become my "space." I have too much junk to decorate my room, so instead I am trying to have fun with the dining area! A while back I posted about a shopping trip that led to me purchasing a buffet. Well take a look...
I just love that pretty design under the mirror, and there is SO MUCH SPACE for me to store things. It's got lots of surface damage that I could fix, but I kind of like that it has character.
One of the many lovely pieces that sit on the buffet. My roommate, Paige, made this cup at Arrowmont this summer and gave it to me. Isn't is gorgeous?!
When Gabrielle moved out, she left this chair. I love it, and it looks so cute in the corner...at least I think so.
When I worked at Express, I would bring home tons of our old marketing and photos. I know I probably wasn't supposed to, but we'll pretend it's ok. These frames and posters are from there, and the middle picture of the camera is from theblueballoon. The camera is a Miranda camera...which is my roommate/cousin's name, so it was perfect.
And I have lots of vases on the table! Those flowers are looking a little sad, but I have some fresh ones in there after this weekend's market! I kept those tiny purple ones because they dried with such a pretty color.

Now I've still got lots of wall space...any suggestions?

You've got a really fun space! And you're right, that buffet has a ton of character. I love furniture like that. For wall art, I love Amy Perotti's shop on etsy. http://www.etsy.com/shop/amyperrotti
