Last weekend was definitely a weekend of pulling rooms together, including our dining room. Of all the rooms this is the one we really stuck to a tight budget on. We had previously owned the tables and chairs which fit well in the space so the only thing we really needed was a little more storage and a few pieces for the walls. We got the buffet on clearance from Ethan Allen at 50% of the price and the other pieces were from stores like Pier 1, Home Goods, and West Elm. And all of them I waited for sales and/or coupons to keep the prices down. For just purchasing a few pieces I am really happy with how everything turned out!
Here is the room when we first moved in. I am still in love with all the light in this room!
And once we moved the table and new buffet into the room….
And once we accessorized…..
Isn’t it amazing what a few pieces on the walls can do for a room? Here are a few more shots of some of the new pieces.
I love that this space feels grownup but also not too formal. Our informal eating area is a small two seater area at our island in the kitchen. So this is where our family will be eating dinners every night, no need for a crazy formal dining room, just something comfortable that can be dressed up when needed! What do you guys think?!
