Now that we are mostly settled in our home I have been making mental notes of the things I would like to do/buy/change/etc. Unfortunately for me I work in a rather high-end interior design studio, so I get to see amazing pieces of furniture that (at this point in my life) I cannot afford But! I can take ideas and run with them and I’ve been wearing my thinking cap a bit lately to try and figure out what to do in our Kitchen/Dining area as well as the Living Room.
Currently we have a dining room table that is incredibly functional (it has a top! You can eat on it!) yet not quite our “style”. Instead of going out and purchasing a new table set (doesn’t mean i can’t still look, right?) I was trying to think about what we could do to the current table to make it more…stylish
So here’s my rough plan..
Take apart the table and remove the legs. Put said legs in rubbish bins and replace with these bad boys:
Do not attach yet! Paint lower part of table & legs in white and upper table/table top in a brown/black color (I’m leaning towards C2′s Black bean). Seal, etc. I would also replace the single knob on the end of the table with something in a metal finish. Perhaps something like this (Ephram knob from Restoration Hardware)
Now we can re-attach the legs and put the table back where it belongs. But wait! The chairs?
I have a plan! Replace with these hum dingers:
And then i think we finally have a party! Or at least a new table and chair set….all for under $200 and a spare weekend. Now just to find that spare weekend…
