If you’ve seen my stories recently then you know that I’ve been scheming and dreaming up some ideas for my dining room. Based on the response I got from YOU, it seems like you’d love to come along for the ride and maybe get some inspo for yourself.
So I’m using today’s post to give you a little look see into what I’ve got in mind!
As far as a table is concerned, we have a pretty small space we’re working with. But I also know we won’t be in this house forever so I want something that’ll grow with us. This table I found from Pier 1 is PERFECTION. The reviews are amazing and it’s just exactly what I’ve been looking for. I went ahead and decided to order the matching bench to go with it. My sister convinced me that the best way to fit lots of little booties is with a bench. So here we are. It was about the same price (a little less!) than getting two chairs so I felt like it was a good idea.
I decided to kind of meet in the middle between full on fabric chairs and just wooden ones. I love the look of a fabric chair but KIDS. I went with these side chairs from wayfair to go opposite of my bench. But I’m still going with the fabric head chairs. Y’all pray for me, OK?!
I figure when we aren’t using them, I’ll let them sit on each side of the cabinet so they’re a little more out of the way. Can’t you just imagine how sweet they’ll be with a little black and white buffalo check lumbar pillow!?
I love my current chandelier but it just feels too big and I need something a little less obtrusive so I went with this one from Wayfair. I like the simple lines but it still seems like it’ll give off a good amount of light.
I’m probably MOST excited about this china cabinet! We needed something for storing dishes and other goodies so this sucker is going to save my life. I am ALL about dark colors right now so I think she’ll be a stunner in front of that shiplap wall.
Planning to have a wooden sign like this one to hang on either side of the cabinet, too.
I also found the coolest shelf to add even more storage!
I’m planning to use my current rug and I’m going to just do white curtain panels, if any at all.
I can’t wait to see it all come together! I’ve listed all my honorable mentions below if you want some more ideas. I feel like I’ve looked at every rectangular wooden table on the internet at this point.
