Lately I’ve been really liking the look of decorating my dining room with benches instead of the normal “dining chairs”. I thought it would be a fun change using the distressed wood blue & mint green benches. Below is a photo I took of my dining room that still needs a little bit of work but its coming along. I still need to get blinds and maybe an area rug for underneath the dining table. These benches two end chairs I found at an awesome home and lifestyles boutique in Fairfax California called Beach House Style. And the dining table I found at a home consignment store in larkspur called, Peterson’s Consign and Design. Both of these stores are my top go to places when I want to decorate my home.


Here is where my inspiration come from, photos I gathered on my Pinterest page before making these purchases. I like to sometimes think about a design look before making the plunge of buying a piece.
