It’s official: I’m all grown up!
This must be the case. Afterall, I have a proper dining room.
This dining room has pretty much been the bane of my existence. But, alas, I finally have it to where I’m loving it! It may even be my favorite room in the house. Oh my! I think that makes me a grown up.
Here’s a quick peak!
I had planned on keeping these woven wingback chairs in our family room, as you can see here, but they look so much better in the dining room, and so I went ahead and moved them. We also added six X-back dining chairs in a weathered oak color. The chairs are made by Dovetail Furniture and came from this wonderful shop.
A pair of lamps for our sideboard has been on my list for quite some time. Selecting the right lighting can be super tricky, I think, so I usually take my good ole time with those choices, but I finally found something that I love. I especially love the seaglass green color. It adds a little personality to this space and it reminds me of the beach. Two great things. I found the lamps here.
Sadly, I do not have any shots of the entire room to share. But, I was lucky to get the pictures that I did given the fact that I was in the middle of a race track! The car below was circling at high speeds all around me! They were laughing and acting crazy, and then when I asked if they could wait for just one minute, this is what I got!
The other minor changes that I made in the dining room, which ended up making a bigger impact than I imagined are (1) I removed the taupe shades on the chandelier, and (2) I switched out the taupe curtains for white ones. I actually just pulled in the white ones from our master bedroom, so both of these minor changes that ended up having a pretty big impact were free. Changing up these two things helped to “cool down” the space.
Here’s a glimpse of how our dining room looked in the Spring:
And here it is today:
Kind of wishing I had taken one second to at least flip on the lights – blah – but you get the point hopefully! You can see more pictures of our Spring dining room here. Click here for pictures of our dining room last Fall.
