Dining Room Set

This is the dining room set I purchased along with the coffee table last week. One thing that really drew me to it was the surface of the dining table. I like the rustic quality of the planks versus a large, smooth surface.

I used a cream colored paint that has an ever so slight hint of greeny-grey.

There are four chairs, but I wanted to mix it up with the bench in there so 2 are on either side of an armoire also in the room.

The surface of the table was the only area I distressed so that the planks would still be visible.

The bench just so happens to fit perfectly on one side.

  1. You are simply amazing! I wish I lived close then I'd have my whole house furnished with your beautiful pieces. I checked out your website…very cool! I have to ask, how do you advertise your furniture for sale?


  2. I agree with all that was said before me…amazing. You have such a great eye and such great vision. I love all of it. I especially love the grey color of that bench. So pretty.


  3. Absolutely Gorgeous!!! I love the mixed seating and the charcoal grey bench! So much to look at and I LOVE everything I see! I really like how you distressed the planks on top of the table! I agree with Sa-Sea Boutique and think you definitely should write a book about your style!!!


  4. Are you freaking kidding me!? I NEVER would have thought that table could turn out so good. And I feel like I have a pretty good 'trash to treasure' eye. I ♥ that bench too! I think I'm going to do that as well! It is FAB!

    I love every single thing about every single thing in your rooms, home, etc.


  5. As always, Holly, your stuff is amazing! I'm getting to re-finish a table and 4 chairs I got for only $10 and I'm just wondering what you use to finish your table. I want it to have a high gloss finish, but I'm not sure exactly what to use on it after I paint it. Any suggestions?? Thanks!


  6. As always, great job! Your home is so beautiful. I am in the midst of my first sand and repaint job (a changing table) and am finding that it is not nearly as easy as you make it look!


  7. I am usually all about color but your blog has me rethinking everything! I love the dinig room..the bench, the chandelier, the slipcovered chairs all of it positively swoon- worthy!


  8. Hey there, I've been reading your blog for some time now, and it makes me excited to design and decorate my own home someday This is absolutely beautiful, I love the idea of having a bench as part of your seating! Is this set up going to be permanent on your home, or is this another piece you were planning on selling? I am just curious to see your final dining room design!


  9. I love it! I have been looking for a bench for my dining room but just can't come to grips with the price tags – ughhhhhh. Which shade of gray did you use? I've been thinking about using a charcoal gray but i'm not sure if it will work well with my cream table. Any advice?

    ps. I just love your blog. I wish I live closer so that you could help me find those great deals.
