Lots of dining rooms on Instagram serve distressed vintage realness, the theme we’d all love to have but aren’t brave enough to execute. A good way to achieve this look (if you’re not confident enough to do a complete overhaul) is to take inspiration from this and implement one feature at a time. Start by replacing your chairs with metal ones similar to this image (maybe add a cushion for comfort), and if you like them, next replace your dining room table and so on.
You’ll find after a couple of months that your dining space looks completely different!

Bringing that childlike glee and comfort to your dining room will instantly put your guests at ease. Likewise, sharing a bench melts away any isolation or barriers allowing for free-flowing conversation at dinner parties!
