Today I am sharing our summer dining room makeover featuring a bunch of coastal accents and beautiful table from Birch Lane.
We wanted a rustic/coastal/traditional….kind of farmhouse theme (I know..that’s a lot of themes!).
Some of you may remember our new kitchen that we installed last fall and of course, once you renovate one room, it seems like everything around it needs a little sprucing up. Does that happen to you? Our dining room is open to our kitchen so we decided a white dining table with seagrass chairs would coordinate nicely with the new white kitchen.
The previous dining room space, which was featured in This Old House Magazine, had a dark gray on the walls and featured bold pops of color. More of a modern cottage look.
The previous room was a dark gray color so we switched it up and went with a light green color called Sea Salt by Sherwin-Williams.
We added a fresh coat of extra-white by Sherwin-Williams to the lower part of the wall and trim.
The seagrass chairs are absolutely amazing and give that summer coastal look we were looking for.
I wanted to try and add as many different textures to the room as possible so the stone candleholders were the perfect choice against the wooden table and seagrass chairs.
The hutch is one that my grandparents gave me years ago when I bought my first house. It’s seen many different colors and I am thinking about painting it a deep gray this fall.
My grandfather gets so annoyed when I paint it, he thinks I am wrecking it. -ha.
The stunning wheat colored rope rug is from Dash & Albert and it’s an indoor/outdoor rug so it cleans up nicely. That’s important when you have 2 dogs and nine people living in one house!
The neutral rug adds great texture to the floor and will go with any drape or other pattern in the room.
You all know I like to change things up from time to time ;).
The chairs came with the seat cushions wish was an added bonus. I love the idea of adding a cushion to seagrass.
The tabletop consists of a planked distressed look.
I filled the hutch with a mix of white pottery pieces and wooden cutting boards to tie in the warm tones that are found in the chairs and floor.
Hydrangeas remind me of my great gram and they are the perfect summer flower for any table. I love how they look with the stone candleholders and cream colored candles.
The cream colored table has a section along the bottom of the table that opens and you can store the two leafs. Seriously, it’s genius!
We have absolutely no storage in our home so I was so happy when I saw that this table had a spot to keep the leafs.
The table as shown doesn’t have the two leafs in but during the holidays, we will shift the table a bit to accommodate the longer table once the leafs are put in.
Like I said earlier, the goal was to tie in our dining room with our newly finished white kitchen. Last week I shared our new family room as well which is consistent with the traditional/coastal/rustic/kind of farmhouse theme.
Here is a picture below.
Be sure to check out our family room makeover to see the rest of the room.
Here is a picture of our newly renovated kitchen.
So now that the dining room makeover is complete, it’s time to get my office in gear. It’s directly off the dining room and a complete disaster. I can’t wait to get started on that makeover! Thank you so much to Birch Lane and Dash & Albert for the complementary product. We love our new space ;).
