Clean lines and a sense of openness is always a winning combination for a morning or day room, especially at meal times when the sun is up and shining. With cross back and soft button-tufted parson’s chairs around a butcher-block table with a center rail, this room features a sentimental wall hanging surrounded by an open two-piece L-shaped scroll frame.
Smaller spaces such as this one, when laid out and styled intelligently, can still be made to be good examples of dining room design. This coastal style dining room employs wooden floorboards, bleached lumber and wood for the dining table and chairs, as well as carved wood for the side tables in the room. A navy color palette of white wainscoting and molding on blue wallpaper also really sets the tone for the space.

Does your dining room need some serious decor assistance? I have seen so many lovely dining room decor ideas lately and quickly came to realize my own was downright dull. With only a table and chairs and your run of the mill hardware store lighting, my dining room was functional but far from pretty. Searching far and wide on Pinterest for some ideas, I quickly realized the best ones were almost all DIY! With the rustic farmhouse look being oh so popular, I knew I was really in luck. I found step by step tutorials for shelving, tables, centerpieces and wall accents, chairs, clocks and curious, plus a few other fun ideas I just had to share with you. If you are looking for some do it yourself ideas that will fit almost any budget or some crafty ways to express your creativity in your dining room, these awesome projects are perfect!
Would you have ever known a hot tub used to be sunken in the floor where our dining room table sits? This transformation made our home into a space I enjoy daily. Being able to see out our large picture windows in both the dining room and living room was only made possible by removing the wall to transform the space into an open concept. I can’t imagine it any other way now.

A shadowbox filled with small mugs and tiny bottles provides a lovely backdrop in this character-driven eat-in living area. Flour boards, crates, cloche bells, tin buckets, and glass jars make excellent décor items for the refinished cabinet top, and an old dough mixer completes the look when filled with metal or glass plant holders filled with lush green plants.
Liven up your space by featuring pretty prints on rugs, window treatments, pillows nad more. Block print dhurrie rugs can command a pretty penny. To get the look for less, use a pretty wall stencil to apply a pattern to a large piece of artist canvas or drop cloth with a foam stencil brush. For an 8' by 10' rug, you'll need about a quart of standard interior paint in a satin finish. Wash stencil every other use to keep paint from clumping and elaving unwanted marks on the rug.
