A couple of months ago, we embarked on a dining room makeover. After seeing our vision come to life a la Layla, we were all in. We quickly realized it was more of an overhaul than a small makeover. Anytime you choose to build 10 foot built ins, a massive farmhouse table, add wall paneling….it’s an overhaul.
Now that we FINISHED BUILDING the table yesterday, it’s time to stain and seal it, and bring it into the room today. I could not be more excited and filled with visions of lazy family meals and gatherings for our friends and family.
That’s why I do what I do. Why I write about it. It’s all this journey to create beautiful, comfortable and functional spaces for my family to live in. To enjoy one another in.
I thought since the full dining room reveal will be within the next week, I would share some of the inspiration photos I pinned to jumpstart my creativity when it came to begin styling.
All of these dining spaces have a few things in common:
- big, farmhouse dining table
- comfortable seating
- interesting walls (art, architectural elements)
- display for everyday used items, as well as strictly design elements
- an overall elegant, yet completely casual & traditional vibe
I can’t wait to share the reveal…and our version of farmhouse dining.
Hope you and yours have a blessed Sunday.
