Happy Thursday! Today I’m switching it up a bit and sharing a home update with you. I am in the process of styling my dining room. I knew it was going to have to get done, but since we found out we are hosting Thanksgiving this year, I had to start it ASAP.
Here is what the room looked like empty with a much dressier chandelier. I videoed it on Instagram, but I didn’t get a picture. This is a snapshot of the video, so the picture quality isn’t great. Ugh!
You can’t tell by this picture, but the chandelier is massive for this room (the diameter is around 70″). My room is approximately 14′ x by 16′.
Supposedly, you add the room’s length and width in feet. That number in inches suggests an approximate size for the diameter of your chandelier.
So if you have a 14′ x 16′ room, your chandelier should be about 30″ in diameter. I picked a 30″ diameter chandelier, the Addington 6-light empire from Wayfair.
We have already hung the light in the room, and I love it!
I sent a picture to my sister and I said I hope the furniture looks good with the light (she hasn’t seen the furniture yet) and she said: “send the furniture back but keep that light!” Haha!
Here are some of the other pieces that will I’ll add to the room in the next week.
We purchased the furniture at a local furniture store, and the rug is from Wayfair. I ordered the sign from Smallwoods. They have a 70% off sale right now. I’m not 100% sure I’ll use the sign, but I’m hoping it will work.
I need some lamps for my buffet, and I haven’t picked them out yet. My furniture is coming next week, so I want to have the room painted before it gets here.
I like the paint color, but with the look, I’m going for, I want to go with a white. I’m heading to the paint store this morning to pick my paint color.
My house has Benjamin Moore paint. The majority of the walls are Greenbriar Beige which is too dark for my taste. I like light and airy, so I will eventually paint them lighter, but right now that is not a priority.
That’s it! More updates are coming soon! Do you want me to share my Thanksgiving decor for the room? (Of course, I don’t have that yet!)
