Dining Room Design Board & Dining Table Must-Haves

The other weekend I was over at my parents house to celebrate my father’s birthday. If any of you know me personally or have been following me on Instagram for a long time, then you might know that my parents were living in OR for the past couple of years. This May, however, they made the decision to move back to Michigan and only be 1 hour away from me. This change has been pretty exciting for me, to say the least. 

Anyways, in my parents new home they have a formal dining room, so when they had everyone over for dinner my mom realized she had no table settings to create a tablescape so she enlisted me to bring some of my own stuff.  which I happily brought. After the fact, though, she decided it was about time to get her own stuff and spruce up the dining room so I was happy to help her out! 

Here is the design board that I created using some of her existing stuff to keep it an easy transformation. It was fun to create because it challenged me to create something beyond my own personal style!

My goal in the design board was to keep it rather simple and something that can last throughout the year. I myself like to change things up regularly, but I can respect those like my Mom that like things more permanent.

Once I started searching for sources for her, I quickly realized that there were so many knockoffs for higher end products. That said, I created a splurge vs. save image and sources for those of you who might not like to invest top dollar in home décor items like my myself:)  I couldn’t believe in some cases the items were exactly the same!

Thanks for stopping by! Fall is finally here so I'm SO excited to start my projects again and share them with you! Stay Tuned:)

  6. This style of furniture has expanded in fame lately and can accompany alluring and rich highlights, for example, obsolete yet contemporary metal flip up handles and sanded edges which inconspicuously uncover the warm waxed wood under. end table

  7. This was surely a new exploration with new taste of kitchen innovation as the dining room is related to kitchen elements. I dug the deeper into the father's birth day party details you stored here for us. The formal dining room, having not table setting up for tablescape and other story and experience you share here were tremendously a new learning and experience for me and table board design you left before us was seriously loving. I love all the details you discovered here. BTW can you please publish a new future update on modern dining room furniture? to bring a dining into a gorgeous shape with all amenities.

  9. I love to cook over real fire! While good charcoal and smoker cooking can certainly give you some nice char-broiled wood flavors, there is nothing quite like a real wood fire. There is something very primitive and romantic about it, harking back to pre-modern times when food was all cooked over an open wood fire. Here are some tips for how to cook with real firewood on your grill, fire pit or even in your fireplace. masterchef 2021

  14. The kitchen is a place in the house that is less exposed to visitors. When guests arrive, they are normally entertained in the living room. Sometimes guests are brought to the veranda for coffee of tea. Seldom do guests reach the kitchen even if they have been invited to lunch or dinner. www.stluciekitchenremodeling.com
