Dining Room Re-Style

Since my last post was all about our dining room remodel, I thought I would follow that up with our latest dining room revamp.  If it were up to me, I would probably re-do each room in my house at least once a year, but my bank account {and hubby} wouldn't be too thrilled with that.

I have been wanting to update our dining room chandelier and seating for quite some time.  Somehow, after I quit my job, I managed to talk my husband into letting me purchase all new chairs and a chandelier.  I got such a good deal on everything, how could I pass it up, right??!! 

Here was our dining room before the updates.  Not bad, right?  Don't get me wrong, I loved the white slipcovered chairs {thanks IKEA}, but they were so wide that I could only fit two on each side.  When we would have our entire family over, we had to supplement with mismatching chairs that we would have to haul down from the attic.  {I secretly think this is why my husband didn't say much when I ordered new chairs.}

The buffet table and dining table are still good to go in my style book.  I found the table at Duh before we moved into The Brainerd Street House.  It was actually my first big furniture purchase for our home.  The buffet server I found on Etsy.  It is made of all weathered wood, and is actually very light.  It was a fantastic bargain find!

Long story short, all I really needed to update this space were chairs that were narrow enough to fit three on each side, two captains chairs for the ends to anchor the space, and a new chandelier.  The dining room table is made of wood with a yellowish tint, so I knew I needed to keep everything light and bright. And, if you haven't already noticed, I love all things white.

Here's what we ended up with, I'm pretty happy with how the dining room turned out.  You can also see that the barstools in the kitchen were recently changed out as well.

I searched for a long time, but finally decided upon white metal chairs.  I didn't want all upholstered seating because we have two cats and a kid.  Need I say more?  And I knew I wanted taller chairs for the ends of the table to anchor the space. I actually almost sent those back, but have since grown to love them. They are slipcovered for easy washing, which is perfect!  Now we are ready to have all of our friends and family over!  Have a fantastic week!
