The dining room table has become obsolete in the past decade with many homes and apartments not even having a dedicated space for one. But, for those who have it or a table they themselves dedicate as a dining room, you know it can be a very special place for gathering. If you are looking for some simple ways to spruce up your table, here are some great design and DIY ideas.
Stain or Paint
Depending on what kind of table you have, a great way to make the table look like new again is to paint or stain it. Changing the color of the table will dramatically change the effect it has on the room, so it’s really worth your time.
Tablecloths and Runners
If you don’t want to go to such an extreme, pick out a great tablecloth that goes with your decor. If you still want to be able to show off your table a bit, choose a runner instead, which is a piece of cloth that goes down the middle of your table. That way you can have the best of both worlds!

I’m getting ready to say good bye to my fall decor. 🍂It’s a bit sad, like saying goodbye to Julie yesterday, but there are new fun things in store just around the corner!!👉 . . And, to be truthful the mums have already died and many of the pumpkins have already gone soft. Even though I’m still enjoying the crisp autumn feels….Starbucks is telling me it’s time for peppermint and cranberry bliss…so I guess it’s time! 😜❤️🤷♀️🎄 I won’t likely be posting new Christmas for a bit…the transition is slow and the house is a total mess! But I’m enjoying the process! Stay tuned!! ❤️🤷♀️🎄 . . And if you’re ready to join in the Christmas fun (no rush, but whenever YOU are ready) feel free to tag Julie @julie.thedesigntwins and me #thedesigntwinslovechristmas 🎄🎄Happy decorating y’all! 🎄🎄 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #falldecor #falltable #seasonaldecor #interior_and_living #interiordesignideas #buffalocheck #blackandwhite #buffaloplaid #checktablecloth #holidaytable #tabledecor #tablecloth #fallflowers #autumndecor #cottagestyledecor #cottagestyle #farmhousestyle #modernfarmhouse #modernfarmhousestyle #modernfarmhousedecor #bhgcelebrate #homedecoratingideas #orb #lightingfixture #farmhousesigns
Another way to change a table’s look is by changing the chairs! New chairs will bring a fresh look to your table and the room as a whole.

Wow! ✨ These statement ceiling lights are the ultimate glamorous focal points in this dining room! A beautiful constellation of three star ceiling lights in varying heights, I love the way it draws the eye upwards and creates stunning impact in this room. I’m also obsessed with the fabulous artwork and pink velvet dining chairs in this room which really ties the look together. A fabulous example of expressive creativity in the home. . . .
