Sometimes when you already know exactly how you want a space to look, it really hinders your ability to find the pieces to make that vision come true. That's kind of what's happening over here at the Maplewood Colonial, especially in the dining room. (Also looking for a money tree, that would help A LOT!)
My initial vision for the dining room was black chairs and a lighter oak/gray wash table. I've already compromised on the black chairs because the shape I liked best were sold out everywhere and well, budget. So instead of black chairs, we have white chairs - will I get ambitious and try to spray them black? TBD.
[Update: These very similar black Windsor Chairs are back in stock. Do I bite the bullet and buy them? Or have I lost my mind?]
I originally ordered this Basque Gray Wash Dining Table for the dining room, but ordered the 65" version and it was definitely too small. [side note: I've cut a million corners in my own project that I would never do in another project...this was one of them] So now I'm back on the hunt for the perfect dining table.
I've searched high and low, probably looking at nearly every table on the market right now. Here are some of the top contenders. Vote for your favorite in the comments, because I'm not sure if I can look at many more!
