my plates.

Like many rooms in my house, I have big plans for the dining room. You probably remember this project we did for the dining room chairs. I think I'm also planning to do some trim work, but I haven't 100% decided. Plus Chase says he isn't doing another project until the spring (I've worn him out this fall/winter).

I did need something for the main wall in there. I had seen this idea on Apartment Therapy or maybe the Martha Stewart design blog, but the plates they used were very modern. I really want a kind of old feel... okay change that to vintage it sounds better.
Most of these came from either Anthropologie or TJ Maxx Home Goods. I would like to add a few more, but I'm just going to wait for the perfect one!

Chase and I are torn on painting the table to match the chairs! What do you think? Leave it or paint it white?

i like the idea of the painted chairs and the wood tablecloth - evokes a real "vintage" i've built this room over time feel to me!

I like the table the way it is. I think the look of the table and chairs being different is really in and does look vintage. Love the plates though
