To Dine ForPosted: October 7, 2013
This is our third apartment and it is always a fun job to take a plain, awful shade of cream, generic, boring, no character whatsoever rental apartment, and turn it into something beautiful! We have never really had a “dining room”. It has always been one big room that you have to be creative with and figure out how to best use the space. Because of the amount of space available, it needs to have multiple functions, so really it’s a dining room/office/laundry room/ironing board/work bench, but it’s perfect for us right now! However, I do dream of the day when we’ll have a big, spacious dining room with 8 chairs, primarily used for eating! 🙂
Day 1 of our House Tour: Welcome to the dining room!
Where’s it from?
Old farmhouse table: antique store (this is one of the few pieces we kept from when we first got married)
Metal tub dining chairs: World Market
Ivory slipcovered end chairs: Pier 1 and slipcovered from slipcover.com
Jute rug: Pottery Barn
White dinette: we originally used it as a kitchen island in our previous home but we didn’t need a kitchen island in our current home so I thought it would work perfectly as a ‘dinette’. Its an old barn door turned into a beautiful piece of furniture. I bought it at an outdoor antique event.
Baskets on dinette: World Market
Milk glass: flea market and antique stores
Mirror: Ballard Designs
Floral prints: antique store
Coat rack: antique store
Other accessories: random places
Paint Color: Behr French Light Gray
So that concludes the tour of our cozy little dining nook! Come over for dinner sometime…I would love to make you my famous tacos!
