I didn't really have a plan in mind for this area, I knew the feel I was going for but I didn't really know how to achieve exactly what I wanted. Luckily things just kind of fell into place as we were working on the rest of the main level.
My husband hung all the crown molding, as well as the molding on the back wall. I really wanted a buffet table along the back wall but, with the moldings I don't believe it needs one!
I painted the walls Tequilla by Kwal, I love the color, it brings a brightness to the room but is still dark enough to make the moldings stand out!
The rug is a painted drop cloth. This was probably the only thought out part of the whole area. I had seen several painted drop cloths and I wanted to attempt one for this space. If you want to read more about my drop cloth I wrote a post complete with tutorial here!
I was not planning on getting a new table, however, one day my husband called me from DI, our local thrift store, and told me he had found an awesome table and asked if I could take the truck over there and pick it up. You can't even imagine how happy I was when I saw this table...not to mention it was $40 and came with the leaf.
I painted it with Annie Sloan's Old White Chalk Paint, sanded some of the edges and finished it off with Annie Sloan's soft wax. I am so in LOVE with this table.
I have always loved set tables so I finally got my own. HOORAY!! We will see how long it lasts, since I have a 3 year old and a 9 month old ;).
