Please help me decorate my dining room
So I'm loving my new kitchen (thanks to Gardenweb!) and it's time for some TLC in my dining room, which is now open to the kitchen (post construction). For practicality, I want my dining room to look great but the table will be used all the time (we don't have an eat in kitchen). I would like something that is distressed or slightly distressed, about 74" long but that expands, and 40-42" wide. I have a new PB rug and a new PB mason jar chandelier. I may keep the black chairs, but definitely want a new table and bench. Ideas on how to pull it all together? I feel like I have the decorating equivalent of writer's block!
