It feels like just yesterday that our number 2 toned dining room was getting it first batch of cover up. It still amazes me that this brown trim was an actual decision that someone made years ago.
Painting the trim in this house, as you all have heard me blab about, was so time-consuming. With each layer, we were aching to put down our paint brushes. Coat by coat, the crisp white trim and the transformation that was beginning pushed us to keep stroking along.
Once the painting portion of the project was complete, this room quickly turned into a storage room for us. Biggest mistake! We cleared it out once, to put together our new farm-house table and host Owen’s birthday, and that was the last time we saw the floors of that room.
We kicked our butts into gear this past weekend and decided enough was enough!
The newest additions to this room made all of the difference –
We sold our old high top dining room table, and put it towards a farm-house table I was stalking for months to go on sale. Adding the matching bench, Ikea white chairs to mix it up and tossing in a new rug + lighting and this dining room has gone from drab to fab in a weekend!
This dining room is turning out exactly as I had envisioned. Light, bright + enough seating for a crowd!
Like how I still have the sticker on the mirror? Still feeling that one out – on my “Do I want to return this?” list.
I love this rug ^^ we purchased the same one in blue for our living room (I’ll be sharing later this week). The black and white in this rug was a perfect balance to ground the space. Adding just enough pattern to add interest to what right now is still a fairly empty space.
Let’s give ya one more before and after, shall I?
Cheers to getting off our butts this weekend and tackling this space! It sure is too pretty to let go to waste!
