When Griffin bought this new home back in 2010, it was builder-grade beige as far as the eye could see. Over the course of four years, she transformed the blah space into a room that accommodates toddler play by day, and family sit down dinners by night.

Griffin chose a Danish Modern dining set to up the Mid-Century appeal, while practical baskets in the buffet conceal toy storage clutter. The builder-grade nickle and frosted glass chandelier was covered with a large DIY burlap and plexiglass drum shade (an $18 DIY). To add something unexpected , the octagonal tray ceiling was painted navy which really highlights that cool architectural detail.

Griffin says, "The final solution has allowed the needs of our toddler to collide quite seamlessly with my desire to have a semi-formal, but livable, dining space."
