Latest Dining Plans


With my latest finds for the dining room, I have a new resolve about designing this room once and for all!  My dining room has never lived up to it's potential and it's about time I let it.  Aside from finishing up a few previously unfinished projects around the house, the dining room is sitting at the very top of my project list.  I know I showed it to you last week, but just to keep it fresh in your head, this is the room I'm working with: dining current

I'm not changing direction in here entirely, but refining, focusing, and generally polishing it up.  Aside from the dining table and floor, almost everything is getting at least a tweak.

Dining Room To Do list:


  1. Install new larger scale light fixture- I've been swooning over the Capiz Globe Chandelier from Serena and Lily for years.
  2. Hang oversized hexagon mirror (check!)
  3. Hem existing curtains from IKEA (no longer available)
  4. Paint piano!!! Yup, I'm finally going to bite the bullet and paint the piano I grew up with.  It's far from heirloom and is looking a bit worse for wear.  I think it will get a new lease on life when it gets a fresh coat of white chalk paint (piano image source: It's Always Autumn)
  5. Brightened up artwork like this etsy print from ParimaCreativeStudio.
  6. Repaint walls with BETTER purple paint
  7. Custom built-in china cabinet
  8. Refinish and reupholster side of the road dining chairs.  Possibly with this dreamy Kate Spade Marble Swirl fabric.
  9. Not shown- new captains chairs... TBD!

Now that I've made some design decisions, I naturally want it all done yesterday.  The reality is, though, that the room will probably come together over the next month or 2.  I really can't wait to get to the finished product and a photo-worthy room for the first time!!  I'll be sure to share each project in this space as is all comes together!
