Dining Area

FURNITURE

Dining Set

The 60" dining table is distressed, limewashed and made of reclaimed teak wood. I think it goes well with the rest of the acacia wood furniture without being a perfect match. I wanted comfortable, fully upholstered chairs with an option for slipcovers so I could wash them in the case of spills. And I got lucky when I got a good deal in World Market.

I wish to have more seating around the dining table for entertaining but the small area restricts having more chairs. So, I bought two white colored ottomans made of canvas and wood. They would double as seating and storage. One of the ottomans gets regular use as a side table and footstool. I keep the other one out of sight in the closet!

Buffet 

I also bought a Buffet matching the entertainment center, to store and display my glassware and dinner set.

LIGHTING

Above the dining table hangs the pendant light in the dining area that was inspired by the street lamps that were used in the olden days. It goes perfectly with the antique furniture and the seasonal themes inspired by the beautiful outdoors.

DECOR

Table Runner

I decided to buy a white cotton table runner to create a white and beige arrangement in the dining room mimicking the arrangement in the living room. Now, the 82" white cotton table runner from target adorns the dining table. I also liked the linen & cotton throw sold at Houzz.

Centerpiece

I use the mango wood tray to a create seasonal centerpiece for the dining table. This tray was bought from Target.

Buffet Decor

The mirror that rests on the buffet is an old mirror from the bathroom! When I upgraded the bathroom, I decided to put this mirror to good use. I decided to a create a black frame for the mirror to create a symmetry with the TV in the living room that is a couple of meters away from the buffet. Since I have no experience with woodworking and wanted to make something really easy, I decided to create a border with tape! I neatly applied the black tape that I had at home to create an even border. No one so far has been able to tell its a tape 😉

The only figurine that stays out round the year is the angel gifted by a very close friend. I love angel figurines and this was a surprise. It is displayed on the buffet and makes me happy whenever I see it.
