When coming up with my vision and plan for our dining room I wanted this to be a large enough space to host dinner parties for friends or holiday dinners for family. I wanted it to be comfortable while still looking finished and complete. We searched everywhere for a new dining table before finally finding the top to our would be table at a furniture store in the sale section. The legs of the table had been damaged so they were just selling the top for $40. So we added some farmhouse style legs that we painted white, some white chairs, and a bench for the other side and it was perfect! I love when the vision in my head actually becomes a reality! #winning
We've already hosted several dinner parties and a few holiday meals. I guess that's what happens when you take a year and a half to finally reveal a space in your new home. But here it is, our finished (for now) dining room.
During construction we were over at the house constantly, taking in every new element! Here's the progress of the dining room space.
dining hutch before and after, I realized I needed to add some more color to the room before I shared our final reveal. So I'm working on adding some more color in the decor. I really love how this space has come together and being able to sit down most nights and eat dinner together in this space. Growing up, having everyone sit down for dinner together was something that we did every night we were all home. Between travel and strange work hours, this didn't happen every night, but every night we had the opportunity to all share a meal together and talk about our day we did. I look forward to having this space to do the same thing as Harper gets older.
What are your favorite parts of a dining space? Any suggestions to add a little more color to our space?
