Updating your dining room doesn't have to cost a fortune. Right? Right!
I've been wanting to update my dining room and living room for a while now. So I've been making slow but sure changes.
I also didn't want to spend a fortune doing it. Because as you might have already guessed my tastes change like the wind!
So I put a lot of thought into it. And thought what bothered me so much about this room? I still loved my dining room table, it has a beautiful base and I do love the dark wood.
But what was it that bugged me about it?
Then it dawned on me! Too Matchy-matchy, even though I like the dark wood there was too much of it, pretty boring are some of the thoughts that came to mind.
And when I look back at my blog pics I don't have a lot of shots of this room.
Here's a before look:
Here's what it looks like now after a weekend of updating
I love how light and bright it is now!
By just changing out the chairs and the curtains and adding a few new accessories, it gives the whole dining room a different look!
I added plates in a navy/white pattern to both sides of the mirror. I bought these years ago at an antique store and I've always loved them. The pattern is "Blue Onion"
I thought they tied in nicely with my new navy/white benches that I just got from a recent Target haul that I mentioned here
I'm thrilled with how it all turned out!
What do you think?
Projects that still need to be done:
New crown mold
New art work for both sides of the french doors
Something new for the corner with the chair
Possibly paint the shelf in the dining room
I would love you're input on this one:
Leave the shelf as is/Or paint it a creamy white!
Leave me a comment I read them all and love them all!
Thanks for stopping by!
