I fell in love with this dining room space from West Elm. The only problem...the West Elm price tag.
So here is my version.
Let's not go in order:
Table: I have a table similar to this one, but in maple (Good ol' Craigslist $30). How about a sanding and a coat of espresso brown?
White Chairs: I have these chairs in green (Again Good ol'Craigslist $15 for 2). How about white spray paint?
The chandelier: I actually found the West Elm chandelier on Craigslist for $65...except I got no response from the seller! Grr, I hate it when that happens! So here is this one from Ikea for $30. Again, I found this one on craigslist for $10 and AGAIN, seller didn't respond!
Maple Foldable Chairs: All together...Good ol' Craigslist $20 for 2. I don't think I need 4 chairs for my size table, so I might just leave these as is and put them away in the closet.
Plant: Ikea has great plants starting at $0.99, My only problem is keeping them alive! No green thumb here!
Plates: Got plates at Dollar Store! Awesome!
Silverware: From Target at $12.99. I have the white set.
Still Need: Rug, Wall Decor.
Ok, ok, since I know my bf is very likely going to read this....No, I am not crazy. I am not buying anything ... yet. If you notice, I already have most of this stuff so relax (for now).
I just previewed this...and "my version" is really nothing like the West Elm picture... oh well. I still like it.
