Dining Room Redo

We closed on our house a few weeks ago so I’ve finally decided the take the plunge and start revamping my dining room (as a start). We actually don’t use the dining a whole bunch because we typically eat in the breakfast room, but it’s the first room you see when coming in the house.

We rented this house for a year before we purchased, so when we first moved in my aunt came and helped me update the accessories and chairs, but now I’m ready to take it a step further. This dining table was Robby’s in his bachelor pad so I think we’re due!

Here’s the current table, and part of the problem is the awkward height…which you may be able to see from this photo.
diningrm_12.03.14I really love a round table, but I can’t decide if I can make it work in this room. I think I’m going to seek some professional advice. Here is one that I love, it has kind of a rustic feel to it.
