How Do I Overcome My Design Fears and Finally Decorate My Dining Room?

Q: I need major help with my dining room. It's a blank slate except for a table. I painted a dark wood table white and distressed it. Right now, I need chairs, a rug, and lighting. I feel completely overwhelmed with the choices and need to stay within a reasonable budget.

Ideally, chairs would be below $250 each MAX. Rug would be great under $1000 if possible. The room is 13x13 and has wainscoting. I'm willing to paint the walls. Right now, they are a pale gray. I'm suffering from analysis paralysis and am afraid to make a bad design mistake. Help me!!!!—Sent by Lisa with a Z
