My dining room update has been put on hold, while I have been distracted by vacation, outside gardening and furniture painting projects. Since things are winding down outside, I am ready to get back to my plans. Decisions have been made and I have placed some orders.
First, this neutral floral fabric will be used to recover the six dining room chairs. This should be a fast and easy project, though I have to admit, it has been years since I have attempted to do this. But, I remember it being pretty simple. I just need to find my staple gun :-)
This fabric from Calico Corners will pair well with the chair fabric and will be used for a table runner. The colors will also blend with a foyer rug that is adjacent to the space and some pillows I already made. Or, I may find another contrasting print (maybe a stripe) for some new pillows. Time to get out my sewing machine!
I decided on this oversize clock for a statement wall because it would blend well with the wood tones already in the space. This was my hardest decision, because I couldn't decide to go formal or rustic, but decided to keep the space a little more traditional.
Here is where I am adding the rustic and less formal elements with one of these wood shelves from Pottery Barn and whimsical accessories. I decided on one long shelf instead of stacking two or three and adding height with the accessories.
I am looking forward to finishing this up pretty fast once I start, so look for a reveal post within the next few weeks. An updated dining room, just in time for fall, sounds like perfect timing.
