Before And After Dining Room!

Saturday, February 21, 2015

If you've been following along you know that the new dining room is finally complete! My last post I showed you the after pictures, but I hadn't added any accessories to it and I wanted to put all the before and after pictures in one post. 

If you remember way back when, this is what this room looked like…


I'm not sure if I've ever mentioned this before but this room was our master bedroom when we first bought this house back in 1987! Then it became our sons room, and then when he moved out an office! Whew! I'm tired just thinking about it! But the way I figure it it's been cheaper than moving. And we've always loved our house, so it's worked for us!

And now here it is…


It's crazy to see how far this room has come and to save you time from having to scroll through so many progress pictures I made a collage for your viewing pleasure!

Remember it had a door to the hallway that we closed up. And it already had the double french doors opening to the living room, so a dining room made sense.

We added the built ins and board and batten and painted the walls Benjamin Moore's Hale Navy. The blue and white combo is so classic, I love it!

I decided on painting the bead board in back of the built ins navy as well and I'm so happy I did! The room has a coastal feel so I added a couple pieces of coral and a basket of antique Japanese floats. I found the vintage glass bottles and dust pan that I filled with succulents from The Magnolia Market. You know that amazing show Fixer Upper! That's right! They have an online shop! 

 I plan on keeping the decor to a minimum so it doesn't start to look too crazy jumbled! I'm sure they will change as often as I change my clothes, but for now I love them just the way they are!

The chandelier is from Overstock and it's a real statement piece! Everyone that comes into the room loves it!

Little boxwood wreaths and candles are added to the iron scale.

The farm table is from World Market and is large enough for 6-8 people. I'm so excited to try it out hopefully soon!

My favorite spot by far is this space between the built ins. It gets great sunlight and I'm sure it will always have fresh flowers or plants on it! I'm searching for a beautiful terrarium to place in this spot.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look around!

Don't forget to pin this to your projects board!

Dining Room Is Done!

Tuesday, February 10, 2015

Hi there! I feel like it's been a while since I've written a post! We've been so busy getting the new dining room done, that it's kind of consumed everything else!

So after many weekends of remodeling, I can say that it's…Done!! Although it's not styled yet, I just couldn't wait any longer to share with you!

I'll be back probably next week with more pictures of accessories and what not!

But for now, enjoy!

I told my husband last night after he got the lights installed on the built ins that it is now my favorite room in the house!

He worked so hard on this room, and did an incredible job on every little detail, from demolition to trim work, to painting, electrical and everything else in between! He's the best! And I think we make a great team because it goes from my head to his hands! And we have fun doing it!

I took my inspiration for the built ins from Sarah of Thrifty Decor Chick and I couldn't be happier with them. I know some people questioned painting the bead board in back navy but I think they turned out incredible, and really made the built ins POP! Sometimes you have to think outside the box!

This is a great view that the head of the table has looking into the living room.

So there you have it! I'll be back next week with a fully accessorized room with full resources and of course before pictures to compare just how far this room has come!

Enjoy your day!
