Eat in/dining area makeover

Currently we have this set up....

I'm taking this photo by standing in my kitchen looking out.  So currently we have this big table in here (it'll be moved to our formal dining room).  We bought this table on a whim after my sister, brother in law and niece moved in with us and our smaller round table just didn't work for big family dinners.  Well, they have since left and I'm finding this table to big, bulky and becomes more of a place to put "stuff" (as you can see at the end of the table).  We don't need it so big and to my surprise the other day my cousin posted a table and chairs that she was selling for $90.


Yes please!  I have big plans for this table and chairs and have been starting to put together mood boards/idea boards and can't wait to pick it up.  I think we'll be getting it sometime this week and then I'll start working on it in the garage in the evenings and during the weekends.

It most definitely will not look like this when it comes into our house.  This gives us a great jump start to what our little eating area is going to look like when it's complete.  I can't wait to see it all come together.  Thing BIG colour, organization and BEAUTIFUL! :)  I can't wait!eat in ideas 1

This is what I'm thinking (even though these are obviously bought from Crate and barrel) I used it for inspiration and to show my husband what crazy ideas I have.  Oh yeah, and the reason I have to colours of chairs, I still haven't decide if I want yellow or if I want teal/green.  What do you think?

The other thing I'm contemplating is leaving the top of the table wood.  I might like to do a walnut-ish (dark dark dark) on the top of the table and then do the bottom and around the sides in white.  Like this:

Anyway that's if for today.  Feel free to leave a comment and let me know what you think, and of course stay tuned for the blog posts that go along with the DIY kitchen table and chairs.  Can't wait to show you !
