Update Your Dining Room on a Budget: Top Picks for Every Price Point
Americans have been spending more time at home, and homes are doing double duty! Dining rooms transform into classrooms for virtual learning, dens masquerade as home gyms, and the path between the kitchen and the couch has never seen so much traffic! Can you relate?
Whether you're working from home, learning the ropes of your child's Zoom classroom, or simply trying to get through the next wave of the pandemic, you're likely spending a lot more time in your same old place, with your same old furniture.
If you're bored to death with your dining room, it may be time for an upgrade – one that won't break the bank. At Weekends Only, we've got you covered.
We’ve selected some of our top picks at different budgets for the dining room makeover you’re looking for:
Under-$200 Ideas for Updating Your Dining Room
Sometimes, all it takes is one change: a dining table that's a rustic rectangle instead of a plain-brown round. A bench instead of your grandmother's dining chairs. A new rug, a new lamp, or a new coat of paint for the wall.

Take a look at these inexpensive options, all of which you can find at Weekends Only.
