Dining room spiff up

It's sad that our dining room doesn't get used as it should for dining.  Mostly, it gets used as a giant desk and place to hang a random jacket or hat on a chair.  I hated coming through the front door to see this:
 So, this week I resolved to spiff it up and remove the computers and clothing.  I found a pretty runner on clearance at Tarjay - $5.38 down from $17.99!  
 Its' probably a spring design, but since birds are around all season long and the weather here is like perpetual summer.... cute birdy print has red in it, and a pomegranate motif, too.  Me like.
 I cleaned and polished the top of the table, swept and mopped underneath, cleared the crap out of the area...I left the hurricane with the scroll-y candle in the center.  I ordered some beige burlap ribbon, and when it comes I will change out the ribbon on the hurricane.
 Tarjay also had some beautiful red curtains on clearance, but I could only find one panel. They were marked from $24.99 to about 7.50.  
Might have to visit another store and look for them.
For now I pretty much love the look of a real dining room.

That looks so nice and spruced up! I saw that table runner at Target too, I almost bought, but I got some cloth napkins instead. Nice work!
