the easiest dining room update


Happy Friday and long weekend friends!   
I'm working with a fun client who has some beautiful pieces of furniture she still loves
 but wants a budget friendly refresh. We're starting in her dining room, one of my
favorite ways to add some personality is to replace the chairs on one side of the dining
 table with a bench. In fact, a zillion years ago my first real dining room table was glass and 
brass with upholstered box cushion benches on each side, (similar to the last photo) oh how
 I loved it! Anyway, she's on board with the idea, but with so many great style options we're
 still narrowing it down. Do you have a favorite?

with your family or friends!

Oh I love that last one with the metal legs, so perfect next to the chunkier table! I love our bench, we pull it up for extra seating when we have guests and doesn't take up a lot of space. Great way to update your client's dining room!

So pretty. I love the style and comfort of the 2nd and the last. I also love the comfort of leaning back, so I guess I would go for an upholstered bench with a back. Happy Labor Day!

They are all great! The first one is interesting in that it combines so many different styles and elements.

Really love that last one with the metal legs. It's exactly what I want for mine :)

I'm all for a comfy bench with padded seat and a back so people linger longer at the table!

Love the bench idea! We have eight children and when they are all home at one time, it's impossible to squeeze four chairs to a side but I think the bench would work and I love the look! Love your blog!

I love the bench idea but only if it has a back. I would hate to be seated on a backless bench. Too uncomfortable.

I did this with mine and haven't changed it since then!
