Windsor Project - The Dining Room

As promised, another Windsor Project reveal has arrived! After months (I think it really has been that long...) of teasers with quite a few photos of these glorious chandeliers on Instagram and Facebook, it's time to dive into the details. For the record, you can blame the long wait on that hutch back there. There was a hutch fiasco.

Anyway, here's another look at the chandeliers, because they really are glorious. 


And a close up. 


These beauties are from Overstock. Not what you expected, right? While light fixtures are often something we would say goes into the splurge bucket, especially for an open concept dining room where they are center stage, it's not a black and white rule. Don't automatically skip over the budget-friendly sources.

Back to the chandeliers. They are the perfect compliment to the breathtaking dining room table. They make a serious statement without overpowering the room.


The table is custom. It's made of reclaimed wood and it's enormous. We spent a lot of time considering all sorts of equally enormous captain chairs for the table heads. In the end, we loved the simplicity and clean lines of a full table of matching chairs. Especially these chairs. They are a modern take on a classic Parson shape. The nail heads bring a touch of elegance and tradition. And the size is the right amount of substantial to fit the table and the space.


And here's the hutch. Oh, the hutch. Without boring you with the details, it was backordered. And, yes, worth the wait. It's glass front doors are perfect for displaying your favorite/obligatory china set or displaying all your fun HomeGoods finds. 


This console table is maybe our favorite part of this room. (I know...but, those chandeliers!!!) Here's why: we DIY'd/customized it to fit the space and style. We added the casters to give it a more height and more interest. And, we accessorized it to our hearts content, which is always so. much. fun. Oh, and the mirror! It's got that glam feel, which plays off the chandeliers, but doesn't stretch too far into the fancy realm to feel out of place.


And, here's how we accessorized the extra large bay window.


We filled the lanterns with some simple remote control LED candles and the vases with faux eucalpytus for a neutral, any time of year, feel. But, both the lanterns and vases are perfect vessels for holiday decor. The lanterns can be filled with acorns or cranberries or LED string lights as the seasons change. And the eucalyptus can be traded for dried wheat in the fall or glittery branches in the winter and dried lavender in the spring.

And that's that! Thanks for waiting so long for these photos. Again, blame it on the hutch! That beautiful, back-ordered hutch. Sources for all these treasures are below.
