Dining Room in Progress

As I've mentioned before, I have ZERO decorating skills.  
That would be on the top of my wish list - being one mad decorator!

I have very slooooowly done a little at a time since we moved into this house last September.
And even that is not saying much.  

So one of the last rooms I tackled was the dining room.  
It still has a long way to go, but figured I'd show the baby steps we've made.  
Again, nothing spectacular!  

Here is a picture I posted before with nothing on the walls (this is from Jacob's bday party):

Here is somewhat of an improvement:

One thing I've noticed is my house has a lot of browns!  So I knew I wanted to add a pop of color with the curtains.  These are from Bed, Bath, and Beyond.  I'm very happy how they turned out.  

I had the metal wall decor between the windows already hung when I found the 3 large narrow ones on the wall to the right at Hobby Lobby which I really liked.  
They were half price and I knew that blank wall needed something.  But that might be too much metal (?).  
I've also contemplated having Kris add a chair rail or wayne's coating to the right wall.  I dunno...

I also need a center piece for the table.  
Once again, clueless.  For now, there's a crystal bowl, but I just put that there.  

Thanks for listening to me babble.  :)
