Here is a look at our current dining room situation. It is constantly changing, but I feel like I'm finally almost finished. Even though let's be honest, I'll probably be changing something else in a few months.
I had originally planned on buying these stools from World Market, but after creating the design board below, I ended up purchasing these iron swivel stools which I felt fit in with our current decor a little better.
I'm in some serious need of storage space for our "special" dishes and serving pieces, so I'm planning to replace our current console with this sideboard. I really love its sort of distressed/mismatched look.
I've also been thinking about adding a rug to define the space. Our living room and dining room are just one long room, so I think it might help to separate the two.
