The Weekly Room

dining room sourced from craigslist

I’m a little dining room focused right now so I put together a sweet dining space from Craigslist this week. Then I found that fabulous blue settee and had to add it in to the room. A pale pink paint or a floral wallpaper (or both, why not) create a feminine space, while the farmhouse table and touches of grey and red keep the room from going full on girly. This idea board is the most tempting one I’ve done, if I had space for either the table or the settee I think one of them would come live with me, despite their almost retail price tags.

I’m curious, would you mix styles like this?

The Weekly Room is a series in which I challenge myself to create an idea board from furniture found entirely on Craigslist. All furnishings must be in good condition and only one IKEA item is allowed per board. Unless otherwise specified, furnishings in the Weekly Room can be found in the Chicago Craigslist. All sources are on the Pinterest board, the pins for which are updated weekly as well. If you have a room or city you’d like me to try, let me know.

    Love them both! I would not have thought of mixing the styles, but when I see it, I like it. And if anyone could pull it off, you could ;) I would actually prefer a more weathered table. Am searching for chairs right now for our big square farmhouse table and love that settee. Might have to settle for benches though ;)
