Dining Room Reveal

Monday, March 28, 2016

A few weeks ago I share a bit about our dining hutch project and I told you I'd be sharing our dining room reveal shortly. Well today I have just that for you. While I'm still working to find the perfect finishing touches on this space, I decided it's finished enough to share on the blog, especially since I'll probably always be adding to all spaces in my house and never be 100% finished.

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.
And here's the finished product . . .
After posting about our 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?


  1. When we built out house we were there all the time too! Your dining area came out beautifully!

  2. I love your table and your dining room light! I was sitting there staring at the picture, thinking "what could be a pop of color?!" Maybe some bright dishes in the hutch or some fun picture frames surrounding it?!

  3. Looks amazing! Love how the room is so bright && cozy!

  5. I love the chairs in your dinning room! The whole room looks fabulous!

  6. Oh my god, it looks amazing!!! All of that hard work totally paid off, it looks like a million dollar room! I love the cozy rustic vibe you went with! I can't wait to see what the other rooms look like!
