It’s week four of the home series and this week we are looking at the dining room!

For some people the dining room is only used on special occasions and for others it’s used every day! They say eating dinner together as a family is one of the most important bonding times you can have, which is why we can’t wait to create the perfect room.

We’ve got together some of our favourite ideas for creating DIY pieces for the dining room, from homemade centrepieces, to drinks trolleys and upcycled dining tables. There’s plenty of creative ideas you can use to create the perfect room!

Here’s some of our favourite ideas for you to try:

Drinks Trolley

Sugar and Cloth



We love these vintage style drinks trolleys for the dining room! They can be used for anything, whether it’s for making cocktails or serving afternoon tea. They can be easily upcycled with metallic paint or stripped back to create a distressed style.

Dining Table Upcycling

Pops of Colour Interiors.


Wanting to freshen up your dining table or stumbled across an old one in a charity shop? Then upcycling is perfect for you! Grab a sander and some of your favourite chalk paints to create the perfect table. We also love the idea of adding patterns through stencilling, it’s perfect for creating an eye-catching piece.

Centre Piece

Every dining table needs a centre piece! We love the below ideas for creating your own, especially the pom pom flowers.





Plain napkins can easily be made amazing by using stencilling or stamping! Make your favourite die design into a stamp or stencil and apply with fabric paint for some exciting new napkin designs.
