Dining Room Makeover Part 3

Yipee! Jesse finished my our dining table! When we tore down the deck last summer, Jesse saved the cedar stringers and upcycled them into a beautiful table. He is so clever and handy! Cedar is a soft wood that dents easily so we might need to order piece of tempered glass for the top.

There are a few things I'd still like to do (vintage light fixture!), but with the completion of the upcycled table, I'm feeling pretty happy about the dining area. I think I need to give Jesse a break from all the projects, too!
I love the way the space looks, but it's also a big improvement in terms of functionality. Our old dining chairs were awkward with low seats so I always felt like a little kid sitting at a big table. The new chairs and table have a better seat height to table height relationship - if that makes sense? The new table is also a few inches narrower so the added room makes it much easier to access the chairs along the wall.

This rug was previously located in our office. It's not really working for me but I'm not sure what I do want, so I'll need to think on it for a while. I'm open to suggestions!
