Dining room

A few days ago I scored some vintage chairs on Craigslist, these are upholstered in a soft sage tweed fabric. I heard from the owner that her parents bought them for their ultra modern home in Los Angeles back in the 1960's. 

I sill want to replace my table with something else, thinking glass but for now I'm cool with my old Ikea table.

Designing a new dining table...

I recently scored a huge 10' sideboard on Craigslist. Now my fugly old Ikea table just looks really sad next to it. So for weeks I've had the idea rolling in my head to get a new glass dining table but everything I see I'm just not that into or its waaay over my budget.

I found an image on Pinterest that got my creative juices flowing. It's of candle holder from the 50's, I just love it and thought something like that would make a cool base. Then I started looking for more ideas...

I still have some other ideas rolling in my head but I love this one so far. Not sure if my welder can do it, but we shall see...

It's soo big, and I LOVE IT!

My husband still needs to get all the doors on, but wow... What an amazing piece! To help you get a better understanding of how big this monster is take a look at the next picture... (I'm 5'7" by the way). After almost killing myself getting it off the moving truck its now safe in my home.

I've been saving that blank canvas for awhile now, going to paint something for the space! I'm so pumped!

Dining Room Overhaul

Say goodbye to my orange wall...

On a whim I decided to redo my dining room. It all started when I fell in love with West Elm's Glass Disc Chandelier (which sadly is no longer available). From there I moved on to picking a paint color. I really love seeing all the dark colors that West Elm has been using and it really helped me in my decision to go this dark.

I got a gallon of paint from Sherwin Williams, the color is called Blue Peacock. Paint is on sale (30% off) now until the 31st. You can also use this coupon with the sale: $10 off $50 or more. 

The wall is painted and the light is up but I still need to pick up a sideboard from Craigslist tomorrow. I'm so excited. I will post pictures soon!
