Now that I’m back from girls camp and all my dishes have arrived, my dining room is ready for the reveal. Because this is a social space makeover, I chose what I most needed for entertaining: tableware, table linens, and somewhere to store it all.
With my AmEx Membership Rewards points I bought: Oneida “Shaker” flatware, white Fiesta dishes, rattan placemats, yellow napkins, whitewashed wooden stands, drawer pulls, and Martha Stewart taupe curtains.
I took your advice, and got rid of the kitchen stuff. Gone is the kitchen cart and hanging baskets. I moved the spice rack to the wall, the microwave to the counter, and the cobalt bottles to the smaller kitchen window. Now the dining table isn’t shoved up against the wall, and the chandelier with Sylvania LED light bulbs is centered above it.
I also replaced the dark navy curtains with light taupe ones and tied them back with white cotton tassels. Remember the thrift store plate mirrors I made? Well, I had a few of those artichoke plates left over, so I hung them above the window.
