Ok so I have posted about my living room suggestions before but now am posting because I am soely focusing on the dining table.
My Mother-In-Law decided that she was helping us by buying vintage items and bringing them to our house as well as painting our wall blue. I didnt say anything because I didnt want to hurt her feelings and didnt think it would keep coming, lesson learned…She really did mean well.
After she brought in this yellow chair (I accidentally left my door unlocked) and walked in to find it in my living room I decided enough was enough. I just told her how I felt and that it was not my style, I was more modern. I know her feelings are hurt, but we just really have a more modern, traditional and cozy style…
When we first moved in
And this is when we first moved in our basic (small apartment) furniture:
She ended up replacing our coffee table with the shabby chic one, replaced our dning table with this one, added the rug, mirrors, painted the wall blue…I didnt say anything and she was just trying to help.Her first reno
And second (final) reno
This is after I took down the mirrors, put that chair in garage and called goodwill, moved rug, etc.
We just bought this couch to replace this one :
We wanted to replace the couch and dining set while Mother-In-Law was out of town (we went to rooms to go) but absolutely could not find a dining set. We cannot paint right now (Although I do have the wall’s original color if I decided to paint over the blue) So I would like something that would look good either way, eventually I would love to paint it another neutral or something.
We obviously want a new coffee table, larger area rug, modern pillows for couch, but the dining table is KILLING ME. I want to do it all basically, but which do I do first…But again, I hate the dining table…
Thanks so much yall. I am debating just replacing chair or saying bye to the whole thing.
