Whether you are hosting a small, intimate meal or a crazy family get-together, you can make sure that your dining room is looking its very best for the festive season with one of these easy and affordable dining room make-over ideas. None of them cost the earth and all of them are relatively easy ways to make your dining room feel totally fresh, new and updated.

Paint Or Stain Dining Tables and/or Chairs

One of the easiest ways to make a big impact is to change your dining table. But why buy a new one? Rather than spending all that money, why not think about ways to make that table beautiful. Perhaps the easiest way to change your table is to paint it. Love Restored can help you out with the range of Annie Sloan Chalk Paints and other Annie Sloan products, which will make your table and chairs look fantastic.

Give Old Tables A New Lease of Life With A New Reclaimed Plank Top

Another way to enliven an old or cheap-looking table is to give it a more rustic, sturdy and attractive top. You can do this simply by creating a new table top on top of the old one using reclaimed wood flooring or other scrap wood. Carefully sanded and waxed, this new wood top will look very expensive but will have cost you very little.

Re-upholster Dining Chairs and Refresh Window Dressings

If you are happy with your table and chairs, you can still refresh and update your dining room while leaving them as they are. You could change (or perhaps even paint) the fabric on your chairs and curtains to make them entirely different and change the feel and look of the whole room. Annie Sloan chalk paints stocked by Love Restored can be used on fabrics as well as on wood and a range of other materials.

Table Runner and Centrepiece 

Even paying attention to small details like how your table is dressed can make a big difference to the feel of the room. Before Christmas, why not spend some time designing a making a new table runner for your table from scrap fabric, perhaps painting it to match other things around about? A centrepiece can also be home made. How about a vase of winter evergreens and berries from your garden? Or a display of cool, white driftwood and shells for a chic, more minimalist look?
