The Way YOU Are- What's Up Whimsy

More, More, More! I am a sooo loving this series and don't want it to stop!

Shannon from What's Up Whimsy has such an incredible dining room! I am major loving it!

Shannon's favorite spot....

"I love this series that Leah has created because I love seeing into the homes of other bloggers - does that make me sound like a peeping tom? Ha ha. Anyways, that's why I love Leah's blog so much - she always sharing little projects that she is working on and additions to her home. Thanks so much for letting me share some pictures from my home Leah!

We are currently renters, so we aren't allowed to paint or do anything major. Even though we are limited in that regard, the dining room always brings a smile to my face. From the stainless steel dining table from Ikea (which gets dirty so easily!) to the painted sideboad; from the framed tea towels from Anthropologie to my blue plate wall; from my monstrously large Ikea pendant lamp to my rainbow-coloured bookshelf - I love it all! My son Keaton also likes to spend a lot of time in the dining room pushing around all his trucks under the table and throwing his bouncy balls around. We usually push the table up against the wall so he has more room to run around (and won't hurt himself!) If we weren't renting, I would paint the walls white because I love rooms that have white walls and lots of bright pops of colour! One day!!

Thanks again Leah for letting me participate! I can't wait to see what other bloggers' homes you feature!"

Thanks again for letting me share my space Leah!

Amy and Alison - You bet that table is from Ikea! It's under the Table Tops and Legs section. Here is the link on the Canadian website, so hopefully you can find it on the American one: http://www.ikea.com/ca/en/catalog/products/S39843735

What is this 'the Way You Are' meme about? Just wondering...just looking at the photos of both your house and What's up whimsy makes me want to seriously decorate my house! :S

I love the color combination. And, I love what she did with the Ikea...table. I have the same one, but I use it as a desk and it now lives in my home office. It is truly chic, and I think it fits perfectly into any decor design.
