I’ve been telling you guys for quite some time that I was working on modernizing my kitchen. I guess I picked one of the most popular kitchen tables out there, because when I went to order it, I realized it was majorly on backorder. But it’s the table I’ve been eyeing for over a year, and no other was going to compare… so I set in for the wait.
The table (and new chairs) have finally arrived, and we’re in LUV with the outcome! Over the last year or so, I’ve been slowly transitioning a lot of my home from rustic to more modern. Don’t get me wrong… I LUV to incorporate both styles, but as the farmhouse craze continues, my desire to do things a little differently has kicked in. So, the girl who thought she’d never be a “modern” furniture kinda gal has transitioned to the dark side. And lately, the more modern the better. Maybe it’s the clean lines. Maybe it’s the unique styles. Whatever it is, I’m LUV’ing incorporating modern designs into my transitional spaces. Without further ado… my modern kitchen update…
You may remember I had a farmhouse table in this area. It was a rustic barnwood-look tabletop and I painted the turn legs (with Annie Sloan chalkpaint). You can find the old table here. I decided to go with a round table this time, with hope that it would open the space a little more. Which it has. Plus, I LUV the feel of family sitting around a round table.
I’ve wanted a marble top table for as long as I can remember, but the desire intensified when we renovated the kitchen and put in a marble backsplash. I’m so smitten with the look of this table, without having the maintenance of a real marble table. (If you’d prefer real marble, this table does come in a version with a real marble top.)
The next task at order was to order new lighting. Since I was so happy with the lighting in my dining room, I decided to go back to my favorite lighting source who had just happened to release these new bucket lights, and immediately I knew they were for me. I also added a new runner, and the entire space felt new.
I hope you enjoy the updates and they inspire you in some way! Let me know… what do you think?
