house update : dining room

When it comes to the dining room, I want to keep it simple and easy so that entertaining is never too stressful (besides the cooking part). My initial goals for the room were:
  • use the space more than just when we had company
  • swap wood chairs for something modern
  • paint the walls gray
  • add a rug
  • purchase or make a bar cart

As you can see, we are very much still in the beginning stages of decorating. However, since we don't have room in our kitchen for a table, we eat here everyday! I love that our farmhouse table is getting lots of love and it's the perfect spot to watch Chief in the yard while we dine. After the living room was painted gray, we started to really like the yellow and now we are pretty set on keeping it- it's cheery, don't you think?

I still need to purchase a striped rug (or make one out of smaller rugs!) as well as 2 large frames to hang Scottish tea towels on the wall to the left. The future bar cart will come in handy to store the mason jars when guests come over, too.

More to come tomorrow!
