Dining Room Reveal

I have to tell you hubs was pretty proud of himself after all your sweet comments about his table. When I came home from work he had a smile on his face and reminded me how lucky I was to have him! :) Ok, ladies... enough of the flattery. He's starting to get a big head over here. :) I tease... he is wonderful!

Ok, on to the dining room. If you missed hubs building our table go {here} first.

Now let me remind you of the before...

And now....





This is how it normally looks. Sort of going for the "less is more" look right now, but I'm on the look out for a centerpiece I love. I also have some ideas for the back wall but it's proving hard to find, so we'll see.




But for now we are getting lots of use out of our dining room!




I got bored with my make shift centerpiece so decided to get out the wedding china and set up for a dinner party!  


Want to come? ;)









Hope everyone is having a great week!

  19. Wow, gorgeous room. I think nailhead trim is like a French manicure for any upholstered chair: classic and elegant. Can our dining rooms be friends?

  26. This is absolutely and completely amazing...I'm starting to sound like a broken record, I need to just record something that says "It doesn't even look like the same room! I can't believe you guys did this yourselves! I love it!"...because I know there will be much more of the same amazingness to come! Have fun in Charleston, that condo looks amazeballs!

  30. Did you replace the base molding or did you just paint the existing stuff white? I currently have stained wood trim throughout and the hubs thinks it would be a sin to paint it, but white just looks so much more refreshing.

  41. Your entire home is amazing. There are SO many beautiful homes to see, but I feel like your home is one I could enjoy every room. The fact that you did so much yourselves and probably with a limited budget makes it the more wonderful. Also, I am wondering along with so many...where did you find the chairs with the nailheads?

    ReplyDelete
  42. One of the reasons why I like visiting your blog so much is because it has become a daily reference I can use in order to learn new nice stuff. It's like a curiosities box that surprises you over and over again.

  43. I love it. Just found your blog and I noticed that your dining room chairs are very similar to mine. They are such a nice style, love the nailheads, and super comfy!

  45. Love, love, LOVE what you guys did with your house! I'm going to follow your whitewashing tips and will apply it to the ugly yellow wood paneling in my daughter's room.
