Dining Room and Breakfast Nook

Just like the living room, there isn’t much to show in the dining room right now.  The wall color is the same as the living room, Gobi Desert by Behr, and was already painted when we moved in.  The only thing we changed when we moved in was the light fixture.  There were Tiffany-style lights in this room, the foyer and the stairwell.  As a quick fix, we exchanged the lights with the corresponding lights from our old house during the move.  This chandelier is too small for the space, but I’m not ready to drop the money for a new one yet.  The dining set is the same one we bought off of Craigslist for our old house, a dark-stained teak set with concealed leaf that can make the table a square (which worked much better with the room shape at the old house).  The only thing I have added was an inexpensive jute rug to protect the floor.

Eventually I would like to replace the light fixture -I’m leaning towards this chandelier.  Also, a part of me would love to one day add coffers to the ceiling, something like this.

Here is what the real estate listing of this room looked like:

In the kitchen, we recently bought a table off of Craigslist for the breakfast nook.  I found the red industrial chairs on clearance at Target.  I wanted them as spare chairs to bring out if we host get-togethers, but since there were no chairs for the table we bought, I am using these for now.
