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
And I can’t help but have table-scaping on the brain…

I can’t wait to share the reveal…and our version of farmhouse dining.

Hope you and yours have a blessed Sunday.
