Dining Room Storage


The wall in our dining room is abnormally long because we have an open floor plan, and I’ve struggled on how to fill such a large space. I decided to use a longer credenza than what came with our dining set and add shelves above it. The previous owner had painted it black, but we already have a lot of dark pieces in the space, so I decided to go navy and paint the hardware gold.

The shelves I stained a light walnut by using mineral spirits to lighten the stain. I paired them with these simple brackets that I painted gold to match the credenza’s gold hardware.

I used minimal decor with little color to create a simple clean look. I couldn’t find the any art that I thought was quite right, so I chose a framed chalkboard that I can customize myself. I’m planning on adding “COFFEE. Then Adulting” to it, but I’m not sold. Any ideas of fun signs you’ve seen?
