Making it Yours 13C: Möckelby Dining Table

Time for the last of three looks around IKEA’s new Möckelby dining table! The first let wallpaper be the star with everything else playing supporting roles. The second room had plenty of pink and gold, with neon for wit. And now, nothing says “welcome, we’re glad you’re here” like four busts of bald women — distressed and aged for that extra special touch. They go perfectly with the $80 length of dyed-blue rope. (Get a pair and hang them like sconces! I’m joking, but I’m also not. It would look awesome.)

Don’t worry. I tempered the crazy by including more traditional silverware, because gold or a more modern shape would just be too much.

Do you have a favorite from this edition of Making it Yours? I’m torn between the first two, I think. All of that pink is very ‘me’ but that wallpaper is SO good.

    I clicked on your link, and I’m curious if this table could fit 8 chairs around it? It says it seats up to 6. They show 3 on each side, but I wonder if a chair would fit on each end, or if we’d be knocking knees on wood. May seem like a silly question, but my nearest Ikea is 4 hours away. I love all of your pics, but especially the pinks!

    I also want to add that I think a table of this size and simplicity calls for an eclectic mix of chairs.

    Hard to say which is my favorite! Except for the bald ladies, probably the blue & black scheme would win. (I’d just look for my own version of whacky to replace the ladies :-) The MiYs sure are fun!
