Breakfast Nook Moodboard

Ever since Jake and I repainted our kitchen cabinets, added a backsplash and installed new flooring – we have really wanted to do up the dining area to follow suit with the classiness. Jake hates our dining table {I’ve had it since my California days, bought it off a friend…so it’s not like I was in love with it either, it was just a decent table that worked.} So now we are ready for a change. One of the main reasons for the decision to get a different table {other than Jake’s general loathing of it}, was that we have a pretty small eat-in kitchen dining area, so we decided that a round table would be the best option for the space – hopefully making it feel more open. {And the table actually just left my house a little while ago since I posted it on Craigslist!} We are a family of four, so we don’t need a huge table…and when we do have guests over, we can find a way to make do.

Art {distorted} / Table / Settee / Chairs / Rug

I would love to flow the yellow/pink/white color scheme from our living room into the dining area because the dining area is visible straight from the front door that enters into the living room. We plan on painting the kitchen walls a light gray {as well as the rest of the living room} eventually.

I would love three of those chairs surrounding the table and then the settee I just thought adds a coziness to the setting, rather than just a fourth chair. The art is something I will do myself and this is a good inspiration piece for where my mind was going with what I wanted to create. The table we are actually picking up today, but get this, we found it on Craigslist for $75.00 – a steal since it still costs $239.99 at Target. I have been looking for a round pedestal dining table forever and I am so glad we found one.

I will keep you posted as my vision comes together!

Target: Dining Chairs

So thanks to my post about mesh dining table chairs, I have been relentlessly perusing the Internet to find just the right ones at a reasonable price. And then I happened upon all of these beauties {at Target, no less!}

These chevron ones might be my fave, would totally play well into our new gray/white/black kitchen {aslo available in black and white}:


Target – $179.99 for 2



The trellis look is also very chic…I think this pattern is playful, yet classy:

Target – $179.99 for 2

 This trellis pattern gives off a nice formal vibe:

Target – $179.99 for 2

And well, sorry, but when I see zebra stripes, I simply can’t resist {wonder if the hubby will go for it? Would totally match the zebra stripe chargers I just purchased from Hobby Lobby!}:
 

Target – 199.99 for 2



These are more fitting with the style I was going for, sans the mesh…but they look sturdy, clean and they are stackable if I ever need to make room – great price too:


Target – $79.99 for 2



I could definitely see these ones at a long dining table for a Christmas dinner…very chic and formal:


Target – 199.99 for 2



In true Target fashion, all of these chairs are stylish and affordable. Couldn’t help but share them with you! xoxo

A Little Bit Meshy

I think I’m pretty much convinced I need a set of white mesh dining chairs. Hubby and I are revamping our kitchen and a new dining set is on our “To Find” list. We don’t have a lot of space as we don’t have a separate dining room, so we are looking at finding a round table (hoping for the perfect Craigslist find that I can paint white) and for the chairs, I just keep coming back to the mesh look as my favorite:

I don’t know quite what it is, maybe it’s the kid-friendly appeal? I know that the steel will be sturdy enough to withstand my boys’ abuse.

The chairs above remind me a little bit of nature, kind of tree or deer antler-like.

Most of all, I think it’s the light-hearted, playful vibe they give off. Some dining rooms can seem far too formal or serious, which can be nice, but I’m a momma of two rowdy little boys, so who would I be kidding? Can’t wait to find the perfect set.
