Home Preview // The Dining Room

I spent a good chunk of my time this weekend unpacking the last of my boxes from the move. With this being said, I'm nowhere complete with the house. But I thought I'd start giving previews of different parts of my new home.

This is my dining room.

I picked up this great vintage table from Jinxed. It has a metal top that is really phenomenal after some tough scrubbing. I repainted the base, but am considering painting it a dark, neutral green. The top is pastel yellow with green detailed painting.

The piano bench was a piece I picked up from a thrift store back in 2008 when I lived in Columbus, Ohio. It's one of my favorite pieces. The red chairs are Ikea (derp), the wooden crates are from Three Potato Four, and the old metal shipping and receiving signs were a couple of things I picked up from an abandoned building in Chicago.

My favorite part, though, are the giant maps. I bought them at the Tree Potato Four outpost about a month ago. I want to get frames for them, but due to their size, it's going to take some customer ordering. For now, they're hanging free on the wall. They're very tattered and have tons of character. I think I sort of have an obsession with maps...

I think at some point this little credenza was used to house a record player. The lids all lift up on the top and it has two separated sections. The bottom doors slide open as well. I'm definitely going to be painting and revamping this piece, but I'm not sure how just yet. I picked this up at Jinxed at well for a killer $36. I swear, I'm addicted to that store and their Instagram.

The Phrenology head is an old Urban Outfitters piece, plus my busted old leather Brooks bike seat, a Diana +, and this amazing GOB portrait. The Boyfriend snagged it for me as a housewarming gift and it is absolutely perfect.

Stay tuned for more previews!
