Redo Your Entire Dining Room With $1500

Flipping through the decor magazines and scrolling the pages of Domaine can sometimes feel like false hope; we understand. All those beautiful interiors cost a pretty penny, and it can feel impossible to ever afford to be able to fully decorate a room. But, we're here to tell you, friends, that it is possible. With a budget of $1500, we designed a complete -- and fabulous -- dining room. It's chic, relatively cheap, and totally doable.
w3 To start off, you need a great light. It's worth spending a little more of the budget for a good one. We love the soft illumination this Pagoda Pendant provides, as well as it's chic black trim.  Pagoda Pendant, $275, Furbish Studio
w6 The table is the main piece in the dining room, so it makes sense to spend the most on it. Something rustic, like this Bayfield Table is perfect for casual entertaining. The more wear and tear it gets, the better. Bayfield Rectangle Dining Table, $475, Living Spaces
+ $475
w2 A host chair at each end of the table will add a sense of formality to the space. We chose all black seating for the room, in a variety of styles, to keep things unified. Almsta Chair, $99, Ikea
+ $198 (For Two)
w4 Large scale art will fill your empty walls instantly. At three feet by four feet, this piece gives you big bang for your buck. Check out all of Debbie Carlos shop for more awesome options. Orchid Leaves by Stephen Eichhorn, $75, Debbie Carlos
+ $75
w7 Continuing the collection of black seating, we chose three metal stools in the style of Tolix. A grouping of three will balance out one side of the table. Smoke Arlo Stool, $45, World Market
+ $135 (For Three)
w1 For a touch of texture and pattern, keep this striped runner on the table. Linens always make a room feel more cozy, and this is no exception. Cabin Stripe Runner, $34, West Elm
+ $34
m9 The final side of the table will house this black turned-leg bench. Perfect for squeezing in extra guests when they turn up unexpectedly. Torrance Turned Leg Bench, $250, Pier 1 Imports
