Dining room updating Swxchat

This little dining room update started back in October (yes it has been that long) when we bought our West Elm Emmerson Table.I had been obsessed with this table for a few months, so I decided to create a design board to see how it could work in our space, and at that moment I was sold. You can read more about my decision to update our dining room and why I chose to get rid of some very popular shelving.At some point, I might move it into my bedroom to hold bracelets and rings, but for now it waves to guests.I updated the chalkboard art (it’s all freehand, which you can probably tell since it looks it! The vintage metal stool at the bottom of the picture is for our young guests.Let’s recap: This room may have originally been the dining room, I’m not sure.One of those doors was a closet and the other led to the hallway that really just stored the huge hot water tank and a tiny washer and dryer.Stay tuned, because I’m planning it for even more rooms!Read more about my shiplap tutorial – the good, the bad, and the ugly.

I ordered mine from Decor Steals last year and luckily they were on sale again a few weeks ago so I was able to snag another.

Just like in my design board, adding the shiplap instantly gave that modern farmhouse dining room feel I was craving.

I first added shiplap in our laundry room and knew it had to go somewhere in the rest of our home.

After weeks of teasing you on Instagram, I’m finally back in my blogging groove and sharing our newest space today.

By the way, this is definitely my favorite room in the house now!
