We have lived in our new house now for four months now. I posted my kitchen and my styled book shelves in our family room, but I haven’t really shared much else. Today, I want to share out industrial chic dining room (at least that’s what I call it!). My husband and I have managed to mix our two styles together. We have a lot of street art, museum and concert posters, salvaged pieces, and feminine pieces. Mixed all together, “industrial chic” seemed to be the appropriate name. You can see how I styled the dining room in our old home as well.
This was the dining room before we moved in.
The old dining room was much bigger so I had to move our eight-foot table against the wall. We can roll it out to fit another chair if we have a dinner party.
Our table is an old metal work bench that we bought at an architectural salvage store. We placed a large glass on top from our old table. I balanced the hardness of the metal with feminine floral upholstered chairs.
I have to admit, I hated the chandelier when we first looked at the house to purchase it. I didn’t think it was my style. BUT, after we moved our furniture in I actually love it!
This buffet table was our old media table. It works much better as a buffet and is very useful with all the storage space.
The mirrors on top I got for a steal. The large one was a broken clearance piece that I repaired. It was originally $120 and I got it for $8! Here is how I made it over. The gold metal one was a mirror I fell in love with at the Long Beach Antique Swap Meet.
I always change the knick-knacks on top of the buffet to fit the season or holiday. I also always change the centerpiece on the dining room table, but I do always keep this mirror as a tray I bought on sale at Michael for practically nothing! It was one of those sale of a sale plus a coupon type of thing.
Here are a few other pictures. Eventually we will paint and redo the floors but until then I hope you like it!
