Whether or not I paint my dining table, I still need to style the space — and if there’s one thing I love it’s a dining table styled as a library table. Since I already use my dining table as my desk, I think it’s more than appropriate to consider styling that area as a fancy library space. I went ahead and collected some inspirational images so we’re all on the same page (pun intended).
Gorgeous, right? (Psst! There are lots more on my Library Table Pinterest Board!) Now I obviously don’t have a huge room filled with windows or bookcases, but I think my little table can get a similar look. The only problem is I don’t really have a bunch of extra books laying around…
I have one trillion magazines.
hoarding collection consists mainly of design-related titles, and since I’m OCD extremely organized they’re in chronological order, in mint condition, and in piles by publication, so I’m pretty sure I can get this library look by using what I have.
I can tell you don’t believe me. But look at this!
And then there’s THIS photo:
And now it’s time to play dress up with my dining table.
