I love rooms that change over time, don't you? When we first moved into our home, our dining room was a space for selling vintage goods on Etsy. Now, 90% of the time our kids use the space for crafting and homework (and usually there are a few piles of things on the table!)
The base of our dining table is a stainless table frame we found from the as-is section at IKEA, and our table top is simply a piece of plywood cut to size. Over Christmas break Lee added a roll of craft paper to the end of our table. And we brought in a thrifted cabinet (and added wheels to the bottom) to hide their craft supplies.
Functionally we are good with the space, but aesthetically we need personality! Beige, beige, beige is everywhere in our home (with the exception of our bathroom and playroom). We are strongly leaning toward a medium or dark grey (its a risk, but the ceilings are low and we can always repaint if we need a change later).
But first I need your help narrowing down the paint color and chandelier!
I plan to make a decision by Monday, February 8th so be sure to weigh in! Leave a comment here on the blog, Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram! xo julia
