Guys, I am so excited today to share with you our dining room (finally) a project we’ve been working on with WEST ELM for awhile!! (I mean, I’ve wanted to work with them for like my whole life!) So to say I was excited about this would be an understatement!!
If you don’t know we live in a tiny, teeny, extra small (for six people) house in Southern California. It was quite old when we bought it, but we had it painted, replaced the wood floors + carpet and got new baseboards. Little by little we’ve updated each room over the last four years. Well, we finally got to the dining room part of the house. Since the day we moved in we wanted a new dining table, one that would seat our growing family, but with the awkward lay-out and really little space given no table fit or was big enough for all our people. Plus, I wanted something we could “live” on and I wouldn’t have to worry about the kids scratching or denting it.
Finally, we found it — A dining table that would be small enough, but fit 6 or more people, was modern, built really well and the the kids couldn’t ruin after one meal. haha. I can not say enough about this Emmerson Table + the price is completely reasonable. I absolutely love that it’s made from reclaimed wood and old shipping pallets (reminds me of my dad) that are already marked with scratches and stains, it has color variations and natural imperfections. (see I told you the kids couldn’t damage it). haha. West Elm thought of everyone because this table comes in THREE different sizes, so it will work for just about any dinning space! We decide to go with the Emmerson Bench as we knew the little people would love sitting all together + I knew I didn’t want all the same seating for the entire table. We added these modern white chairs (from Dot & Bo) and the white ceramic vases to lighten things up and soften the ruggedness from the table. I love how it turned out and have to admit I’m so glad waited this long to make sure we got the right table to fit the space. So tell me what is your favorite part about your house?!
