Remember when I shared about our bathroom renovation? Well, it’s coming along slowly. My hubby is still gutting it right now, as the tile posed a bit more of a challenge than he expected. Sheesh! Who knew how hard it would be to get that tile out??? In the middle of all of that, I have gotten a little bit obsessed with trying to make our house look more like we want it to look, and I’ve been thinking about our dining room. There’s nothing wrong with it, per say. It’s just a bit blah. Basically it contains one big table and six chairs right now. That’s it. Nothing on the white walls or anything.
The chairs are the same dining chairs that we bought over 10 years ago, from Restoration Hardware (back when we were silly enough to spend big dollars on dining room chairs). At the time, we thought these upholstered chairs were beautiful, but now that we have three kids eating in those chairs, that upholstery has lost it’s charm. Can you say stains? Ugh, they just look gross now and I cannot get them clean! I’m dreaming of comfortable dining chairs. Dining chairs that are not covered in cloth! My best friend has a big chunky table with chairs similar to this, and I love the mix of traditional and modern…
But how fun would these be?
Both of these can be found at Tesco Direct, an online superstore, where you can find just about anything for your home! I’m totally into thrifting and finding an unmatched set of chairs that I can paint with some chalk paint though… I just can’t decide!
As for our table, it’s from Tom’s parents and it’s awesome! I love it! It’s a big,sturdy farm table and it seats our family of five comfortably, but I’d really like to paint it. Tom’s not so hot on the idea, but I would love to do something like this…
I’m kind of loving this yellow though. It’s so bright and cheery!
That one comes from Jamielyn at I Heart Naptime, and she shows you how to make your own chalk paint! She did a great job.
So that’s what I’ve been thinking about. Tables and chairs… I haven’t even made it to the walls yet?
What style is your dining room? Eclectic? Modern? Shabby Chic?
