New Dining Room Furniture & Design: Guest Remodel

The Nest on The Hill  has gone all out with new dinning room furniture and wall art to help with the plain walls in their dinning space.

My first instinct was to go gray in the dining room. I knew it would play well off the green from the living room but allow us to use different colors. Beyond the gray and a pair of curtains I liked, though, I was at a bit of a loss. I played with a mood board a bit, but still wasn’t quite sure on the details. 

See that? The giant empty wall straight ahead? That wall was driving us insane. We knew we had to have something pretty eye catching, as that wall would be the first thing anyone saw when walking in through the living room. The hard part was finding something we loved that didn’t cost a fortune. And along came Ikea…

I don’t know which one of us pointed out the city print first, but we both stared at it a bit and then committed to liking it…but being afraid of it. It’s huge. At over 6 feet wide and 4 feet tall, it fit the bill for our big, affordable art piece but we just were not quite sure how it would fit. After staring at it for a good fifteen minutes, we sucked it up and brought it home.  

It ended up fitting quite well with the rest of the room and now we both love it. I had bought the vases made from magazines from Marshall’s on a whim the day before our Ikea trip and, after buying the print, we loved that they look like skyscrapers.  

Our Ikea table and Target chairs rounded out the room and all that was left was for us to switch out the chandelier-ish light for a new one. Little did we know, that task would end up taking two days and about 100 trips to the fuse box…

What a great change with the new dining room furniture and wall art!  It all turned out very nice!  How do you like it?
