When decorating my dining room I originally went the formal route. I had my grandmother’s dining room set which included a table, chairs, buffet and china closet. Everything was mahagony. Everything was a set and everything was not the look my husband and I wanted. I also did not like the feeling that I was living in my grandmother’s house . Because I wasn’t willing to get rid of the set or paint it, I decided to do a little switcheroo. I brought my bookcase that my Dad built and put it in the dining room. The book shelf is navy so it breaks up all the mahagony wood and adds a more casual vibe to the dining room. I love it.
