I mentioned earlier that this room is intentionally our only eating area (excluding the kitchen counter bar, that is). It's meant to be informal and casual. I've always wanted a dining room to be a place where people felt comfortable pulling up a chair and joining in. Of course, if I had more room, I would have gotten an even bigger table to allow for even more chairs (because if you haven't gathered already, I have a small obsession with old wooden chairs)!
Originally, the chairs were all brown, but recently, I took the plunge and painted them all white. (You can see that project HERE.) I'd probably prefer a fun rug to go under all those chairs, but a toddler, food and rugs don't tend to mesh well.
The buffet you see back there was an old bar my mother-in-law found at a thrift store years ago. I sanded it down, painted it a mustard yellow, and attached a few wine glass racks. It has really served it's purpose well in this space.
The wine cork board you see on the wall was a knock-off from Pottery Barn that Grady and I made a few years back. I've never stopped loving it!
It's rare that you'll see fancy dishes or fine crystal in this room, but I've discovered I tend to like it that way . . .
