Disclaimer: I was gifted products by Safavieh Furniture but this post is written 100% with my opinions and views.
We moved into our house two years ago. We still haven’t been able to decorate as we want to fully so we are slowly doing room by room. The year we bought the house we had just gotten married so we had so many expenses we couldn’t afford to start remodeling right away. Our home has amazing bones but it has definitely been a fixer upper. We put at least 30-40K in within the first two weeks of moving in to update it. It was purchased in a short sale so the previous owners hadn’t been in the house for so long, it was really unkept.
There are still a few things left in the kitchen I wanna do. Mainly the backsplash along the counters and I want to paint our kitchen cabinets. (Gonna do a post on that too because I am gonna paint them myself and do my own backsplash)
I knew I wanted a rustic kitchen from the get go. Our dining room is very formal and glam so I needed to warm up the kitchen. I’m a very eclectic person when it comes to designing. I don’t like things to match and I like to have a little of everything. For example, my kitchen is rustic, my living area is kinda bohemian and my dining room is very glam. To pull the rustic look for the kitchen, I wanted a farmhouse table. I had a vision in my head of a farmhouse table with benches and these big tufted linen chairs on the end to tie it in with the rest of my home.
I had the benches built locally and I plan on staining them a deeper color. I just needed to find the perfect chairs to fit my vision. I hate when you have a vision in mind but it doesn’t turn out like you envisioned. Luckily, I found these reasonable chairs at Safavieh. I received them in the mail and they were super easy to put together. (It’s just the legs that need to be attached) I have sat in them daily and I’m so obsessed. The tufted chairs are a taupe color with gold studs along the back. They fit perfectly with the table. The legs are an espresso color that I intend to stain the benches.
I have also included photos of my table and wall decor that I hope you guys enjoy. I love the homey feel of this kitchen now.
