Our dining room was one of the first spots I designed in our house. Partly because I had a vision for it from the moment I walked in, and partly because I found super cheap furniture on Facebook Marketplace I could DIY into what I wanted! Work with what ya got friends…keep scrolling for a before & after of this room…it’s a good one!

Let me just tell you…I got this dining table for $25 on Facebook Marketplace…it came with six chairs I didn’t want, that I turned around and resold for $20. So all in all I paid $5 for my dining table. The Chippendale chairs were originally a chocolate brown. I got all four for $75, also on FB Marketplace. These chairs originally go for around $300-$900 EACH. Such a steal. 

I knew I wanted some dining themed art somewhere, but I wanted to avoid anything that felt cheesy or overdone. So i opted for this cutlery Etsy print in one frame and this piece that says “As for me and my house, we will serve tacos. – Salsa 24:7” I just designed myself. I saw the quote while I was searching for the right second print, but couldn’t find it in a font that fit the style of the room, so I created it in Photoshop and had both pieces printed at Fedex on high quality cardstock. If you want my “We Will Serve Tacos” print, shoot me an email and I’d be happy to send it over!

Because I sourced a lot of this room from Facebook Marketplace and HomeGoods, I don’t have all the source links for you…but I will link similar pieces on my shop page

Can’t wait to have our first Christmas dinner right here this year!
