Country Dining


Here I got an electrician to hang this fabulious light over the oak dining table to create a focal point I also put a dimmer switch on to try and create a great ambiance.

The cabinet on the back wall is a great storage solution for cuttlery lines and large serving dishes and with the glass fronted doors it makes for a great visual ilusion of more space.

I ripped up the old sisal which had turned yellow and laid this herringbone weave by Crucial Trading it took two days to lay with 4 men as they had a job to remove the sisal from the floor first as it is usually stuck down.

The black chairs and the black lampshades on the chrome lights all help to pull the look in and the silver stud detail on the dinning chairs brings the shine from chrome through from the lamps to antler chandelier and beyond. 

The walls are painted in F&B French Grey and the ceiling is Grey.

I dry brushed the beams giving that real country chic look I used a very watered down mix of two of Annie Sloane paints.

We have a link to u tube where you can watch me doing this.
