Here’s what I have in mind…
I’m using this table, from IKEA, instead of the one in the image above (from Pier One,have I mentioned I LOVE Pier One lately?). The IKEA table has extensions,
so I can seat more when needed,
and keep it smaller and cozy when
it’s just us for
I’m planning on white-washing the bottom of the table
(Ben Moore – Ivory Tusk), for more of a farmhouse feel & to make it look a little more custom, and less IKEA.
I am going to experiment with this Brushed Nickel spray paint
on the dining chairs…
I used it on a client’s picture frames recently and fell in love with it. (go get yourself some)
I already have a black bench,
which will workout perfectly with 3 small kids.
And if the above chair project doesn’t work out, they’ll be painted black too.
The cow hide rug looks great in the picture, but the more I think about it, the more it will drive me crazy keeping it clean.
(I’ll send it upstairs to our bedroom I think)
So I am thinking about painting the entire dining room floor something like this…
The walls will have a combination of
BM Ivory Tusk board and batten, and SW Rice Grain.
I have an old buffet that I will paint SW Sea Salt.
It’s a toss up for the end chairs. I thinking either –
The light fixtures are easy and inexpensive –
So, all in all this room comes in at a little under $1500.
Not including labor – AKA me.
Not bad for a dining room re-do, eh?
