We FINALLY finished painting the dining room this weekend. I love the color (Paris Green from Benjamin Moore).

(Sorry for the horrible photo quality…c/o my iPhone)


And we now have our classic dark wood Ikea table/chairs, but the room is still very empty looking.

We have hardly eaten in there, because last time we did, my boyfriend looked at me and said: “It’s so empty in here, it’s echoing.”

And it totally was.

So I’ve been scouring Etsy etc for anything to help make it feel more homey.

We have this ancient and disfunctional chandelier in there that desperately needs to be replaced. And I think I found the perfect new fixture:

I love it. Vintage, industrial looking…I think it would add a great feel.

And for a centerpiece?

I have been obsessing about these parchment lampshades from Dekoop.

Since they’re meant for wine glasses, I finally found the perfect set (via Etsy of course. Thanks to fullcirclehome):

Now I just need something for the walls…
