MY DINING ROOM







THE FYI:
-For paint colors click here
-Drum shade from Armour & Co (the store was within walking distance of our home in Atlanta) In the clearance bin I found what is now my dining room fixture- for $20! I hired an electrician here in Nashville who made it happen (no conversion kit was used) and presto! Never underestimate a clearanced item you can repurpose!
-Linen bench from P.D's ($499) (read about it here)
-Crossback chairs ($16 each) and farm table ($995) from Southeastern Salvage
-Parsons chairs ($50 each) from P.D's here in Nashville (been a fav spot for 10 years now!)
-Ethiopian crosses and photography on walls (all framed in Atlanta) from my travels to Kenya
-Both consoles from Metropolitan Deluxe in Atlanta (no longer exists)
-Candlesticks and basket on the dining table from Homegoods
-Curtain rods throughout my home are all Modern Drape Rod from Potterybarn
-Drapery panels are from Potterybarn, Peyton Grommet Drape, Oatmeal, 108", $109 per panel--I have these in every room of my house on the main floor.

  2. Your dining room is absolutely gorgeous! The new bench makes everything look even more perfect. Have you considered maybe adding a rug underneath the table? Just a thought.... : )

    @Aileen- I'll give you 3 guesses and the first 2 don't count, lol. Ha. TJMaxx, baby!

    @Jessie- You can't see in the pics, but the wood floor has a trim inlaid that is a border and its too gorgeous to cover up! It makes it look like a wood rug, lol. The coffered ceiling and the floor are my FAV parts of the room for sure. Otherwise, you know I'd have to try one! lol
