Dining Room Reveal

Hi everyone!
I hope you all had a nice weekend.
We had lots of fun,
we headed to Fire Island to celebrate a friend’s 40th,
 spent the better part of both days outside with the boys,
& finally snapped some photos of
my dining room.
My dining room has always been my favorite part of the house.
The large windows that flank 2 sides gives breathtaking views of the bay and
the barrier island of Dune Rd, Long Island,NY.
It is light, bright and full of charm & character,
 it was defiantly LOVE at first sight.
The goal for this room was to work with the pieces I had
 and to create a room that was
pretty & practical,
 on a BUDGET.
The bigger spends were
the built-ins, linen drapes and petite buffet.
I slipcovered my dining chairs,
painted my existing bench with a french grainsack stripe,
reused my table,
found chairs in the trash
and collected most of my accessories
from thrift stores, tag & estate sales
and of course a few things from Home Goods.
I mixed old with new,
combined styles and textures
 & brought balance to the space by repeating the
creams & whites.

  1. Your dinning room looks darling, I don’t know what is my favorite. The stripped bench, chair covers, wall shelves. It all just fits together perfectly and looks so fresh and country.

  2. I think that is my dream dining room! Love everythin in it from the color of the walls to the wall prints and slipcovers! Everything turned out beautifully!

  3. I just love everything about this room – the colours are gorgeous, I love the fabric on the dining chairs (I have cushions from the same fabric on my sofa and just love them) the light, the shelves. Great job – well done! I’ll be over for a piece of cake asap! x

  4. Thanks everyone for all your kind words:)!
    Hi Collette,the slipcovers were made by Bella Homes,in Patchogue, NY. I gave them a picture of a short & tight box pleated skirt and I love the job they did.

  5. Stopping by from Dedicated house. My attention was caught by seeing you chairs, the fabric drew me in. Now I know why, the fabric is exactly what I have to make curtains for our master bedroom. You chair slipcovers are so beautiful, and helped me fall in love all over again with the fabric. I am so envious of the size of your dinning room girl, that is one hulking room of gorgeousness. Thank you for itemizing all your sources. Everything looks so beautiful together!!! Gorgeous colors. Is there any cake left? My fingers are crossed that you might share with Sunday’s Best – too pretty not to share. PS – following you on Facebook!

  6. Jen,

    This is one amazing room! Love the colors and the drop cloth chair (I have a thing for drop cloth as fabric) and those Target lamps made me swoon … and want to rush out to Target right this minute to get my own!

  30. This is beautiful! Can I ask how you made or where you got your bird art surrounding the mirror? I might like to copy that but with sea life possibly. Thank you for sharing!

  31. Hi Lacey,
    The bird art was an easy DIY project. They are decals from etsy stuck right on printed cardstock also downloaded from etsy. I am sure it will be really cute with the sealife silhouettes. Have fun:).

  32. Dining area is one of my favorites area on the house and I really like the style of it. If you see that your dining area is very clean you can eat properly and very much comfortable that is what I’ve seen on those photos very neat. I am really thankful for sharing you this wonderful blog. Keep it up:)

I can’t seem to find it anywhere so I’ll just ask…did you paint your table and bench, i know you did the stripes, but i mean the base colour…& if you did do you have a tutorial. Thanku for sharing!!
