Sometimes I have a vision. Despite the best made plans, my vision doesn’t often come together, but this time, it did!
Earlier I posted about a table that I had found that I loved, but it didn’t have any chairs. So, I found another table with 6 chairs, but I wasn’t in love with the table.
I painted the table a dark gray from the Behr Premium Plus line named Pencil Point (and it was free at the recycle centre). The chairs were spray painted with a flat white then lightly distressed.
My old coffee table turned bench was a little too large to fit under the table so I cut the top down and it now fits perfectly.
The bench is the first thing you see as you come up the stairs to the dining room, so I wanted something that wasn’t going to block the view. Success!
The cushions are made from placemats that I did a while ago. The seat and bench cover are a curtain that I picked up at the GW for $3.00, originally from Ikea. I was happy to be able to incorporate some of the green that I have throughout the rest of my living space.
Just as Sunny predicted, I found a fabulous drum shade at the GW Boutique for $6.99, but I wasn’t so in love with the fabric. I took a piece of black fabric and sewed together a slip cover. Now my little gifted chandy looks so elegant and grown up.
And now for your viewing pleasure, I present my dining room :)
I decided to set my table and realized that I have no clue how to set one up. It’s not something that I’ve paid much attention to so I had to go searching online for some clues :) Whateva, it will do.
Of course you know, that in about 3.9 days, it will change again, in some way.
Yah, so I’m linking up to the following parties ;)
