Rustic Modern Dining Table

Dining Tables Picking out a new dining table is one of the most exciting experiences for families. That’s because the possibilities are endless. Imagining what your dining space will look like, adding artistic details and bringing them to life is an adventure where the journey is just as much fun as the destination. So whether you’re looking to bring something fresh into an existing dining room layout or want to create a completely new theme for your space, west elm’s distinctive dining tables open up a world of emotion. Look around, get inspired and create your own interior masterpiece. Here are some dining table decor ideas to help. It doesn’t take long to discover that your eyes know what they like. All of our tables have something special that sets them apart from the rest. They’re pure art. Reclaimed wood works in industrial designs and rustic layouts or for adding warmth to a room brimming with your favorite artwork. Use sconces or accent lighting to enhance paintings even more. Or focus on major elegance with marble or glass tabletops. If possible, choosing your dining table before adding other accent pieces is helpful. That’s because the table is what sets the tone for the rest of the dining room. It has a huge impact on the mood. Depending on the table, your room might feel intimate, modern, vintage or exotic. And once you know what table you want, it’s a lot easier to choose accessories that match – or contrast. When guests arrive, your table is where their eyes head first. It gives them an appetizer of the excitement to follow over the course of the evening. So where should you put your dining table? Every room is different, so that’s something only you can decide. Here are a couple things to keep in mind, though. First, try to position the table where it has the biggest visual impact. In a dedicated dining room, that’s usually in the middle of the room. That way, you have enough space for a buffet, glass cabinet or console table around the edge of the room, if you want. Also take into account any architectural highlights in the room. Does one wall have a large window with natural lighting? Position the table so it receives plenty of brightness during weekend breakfasts. If your dining room has a stone fireplace, make sure guests can enjoy the view and feel the warmth. If your room size allows, try to add 54 to 60 inches between the table and whatever surface is closest – either other furniture like a buffet table or the wall. That way, you can walk freely behind guests to serve dishes, and they’re able to seat themselves comfortably. If you’re designing a kitchen dining nook, you only need 24 to 30 inches to slide into your seat. Open-concept designs are gorgeous. They give you tons of room to play around with, and the result is relaxing and spacious. To create a soft border between your dining area and living room, use a large rug to unify the space. If possible, pick out an elegant rug that’s large enough to encompass your chairs too. A beautiful chandelier or pendant overhead also differentiates the room from its surroundings. Think outside the rectangle. Sometimes a round table is exactly what you’re looking for. They’re extremely versatile because they look great in almost any part of a room: in a corner, in the center or as a breakfast spot in an easily accessible location. If you have a cozy apartment, for example, a bistro table fits nicely in your bedroom, kitchen or living room, creating its own little dining room within a room. When you have guests over, let your counter or island serve as an extension of your dining table. Find chic bar and counter bar stools from west elm to ensure you always have extra seats available. Expandable tables also help in more compact spaces. Go about your daily routine with the table in its customary configuration. Then, when you invite friends over for a party, it’s easy to accommodate up to eight people for the special occasion. At other times, you can accessorize with a vase and flowers to brighten up your apartment even more. Read More

Join us on Instagram and Pinterest to keep up with our most recent projects and sneak peeks!Check out our new how-to videos on YouTube! Make sure to subscribe to our channel so you don’t miss any!With Thanksgiving just around the corner, our first thought is not what we are going to cook but what we are going to eat the food on! We designed this simple Rustic Modern Dining table that you can build with only 12 2x6x8 boards – that’s about $50 in lumber! Check out our How-To Youtube video, below, to see just how simple this bad boy is to build!As always we have the free printable plans for ya! Just click HERE to download and print them. Then, you can follow along with the step-by-step below!This right here is all the lumber you need! 12 – 2x6x8 boards!We used our Ridgid Table Saw to rip the round edges off and made each board 5″ in width. This is not a necessary step but it will create a very smooth table top with no ridges. If you don’t rip them, make the base about 4″ wider.Then, we made our cuts!Here are the legs.The table runnersand the supports and the leg runners.After all of our cuts had been made, we used our Kreg Jig K5 to drill 1 1/2″ pocket holes into the boards.(Refer to our printable plans for the pocket hole placement). You can see that we have our Kreg Jig set to drill 1 1/2″ pocket holes. You can find the Kreg Jig that we use HERE on Amazon and you can watch our How to use a Kreg Jig video HERE.We started by assembling both legs. We used wood glue and 2 1/2″ pocket hole screws.The leg runners will attach to the legs and be flush with the edges of the legs. Make sure that your pocket holes face out so that you won’t see them once the table is done.Now, you should have two legs that look like boxes
