The mountains and mountains of stuff that slightly resembles a house.
Oh, you guys, the stuff is piling up on top of me. On top of us, I should say. The stuff is piling up and it's making me feel like maybe just never doing anything ever again? That's cool, right? Right?
No. Of course it isn't cool. It's very uncool.
So, I'm going to start with something "small".
Like this giant dining room table.
But seriously. I've put it off long enough and with the holidays fast approaching and us finally having a proper table that comfortably seats more than four I should probably start making this room like...well, something.
Step one: table.
Some things have changed since we last spoke on the table topic. I no longer really want a mish-mash of all sorts of chairs. Instead, I've gone straight mainstream and decided that I would prefer something soft and comfy like these from World Market:
I've sat in them. They're fantastic. Waaaaaay out of my budget but hey, there's always Craigslist.
I've looked at oodles an oodles of pictures online of painted tables, tables with just the legs painted, with just the top painted, with stain. You name it, I've googled it but I just can't decide what to do. Painting would be easiest but with the black doors, what color would be best?
I want this room to feel like basically the opposite of what it is now which is empty, cold and very echo-y. Hence the upholstered chairs and some long, stiff curtains on the windows on the left there:
This picture from Lonny is the closest I could find to the colors our dining room currently has (black, gray and white) and the colors that I want it to have (brass, antique wood,linen). It has a black table (and black floors!) But a black dining room table? Too much?
You tell me. No, seriously. TELL ME!
Stain, paint, leave it the way it is? What do I do? It's the choose your own adventure room and whoever is listening out there on the interwebs, you're in charge! Guide me with your awesomeness.
Thanks in advance!
