Recently I shared with you how I was creating a makeshift dining space in our home that didn’t have an eat in kitchen or a dining room. I ended up making a few tweaks to make it feel even more like it was meant to be a dining space.
First I added this rug to help define the space. It’s smaller than I would normally go with under a table, but it’s the biggest size I could fit into this space. Otherwise it would have encroached onto the entry rug and into the living room.
Then I converted a can light to a pendant so that I could hang this drum light. Here you can see how I used the converter kit. *contains affiliate link* I think the big drum light really makes it feel like the table is supposed to be there, rather than having a randomly placed table in the living room.
Above the space I hung the “Put on Love” garden picket sign that I originally made for our master bedroom.
Even though it’s not an “eat in” kitchen, it’s pretty close! I also love finally have a real table to eat meals at!
I couldn’t resist sharing a shot of my mother’s day flowers in there too!
I think that this “dining room” goes to show that by thinking outside the box you can make any space your own. Rather than sacrificing having a table to eat at I just had to re-imagine and reinvent this space. Hopefully this gets your wheels turning on how you can make a new space functional in your house!
