Happy New Week. I have my dining room reveal for you today. After I took down all my Christmas decor I took it a step further and took everything out of the dining room!!!
So now with some fresh paint and a new decor look I will show you the new dining room.
|This was my dining room before. Basically cream and whites throughout. See that old chippy cabinet door with the candle chandelier hanging on it. You will see what Terry made that into later in this post.|
|Here is a wide shot of the after. I painted the walls Stone White. It is white with a hint of grey. I also added back my creams and whites and a lot of my architectural pieces I love.|
The best part of this re love of this room is that the only money I spent was on the paint and having my curtains made for this room. Everything else I had already. More about the curtain seamstress later.
|I think the best way to tour this new dining room is to go by sections. This is the back corner of my dining room that I put my reading chair. The beautiful curtains were made for me by Karen Harmon at Designer Stitching. If you do not sew like me and need any sewing please check her out on her Etsy shop. She is very reasonable and quick. Karen is a sewing angel.|
I got the fabric from Ikea to cover my chairs and I sent some to Karen to make these panels for me. Karen also made me a gorgeous bedspread that I will show soon.
|Remember these old porch posts that I framed the coffee bar with well.......|
|They now adorn my dining room window as a chippy header.|
|Hung my chippy white cage with love birds in front of this window. They look like they are looking out to the garden in the back.|
|Moved this old vintage mannequin I found at my fave store Vintage in Morris awhile back. Hung a chippy window behind her. She adds a little vintage whimsy to this room.|
|I put my chippy mantel back up on this wall where I use to have the coffee bar and shelves. Hung my old vintage angel on an old chippy window for the top of the mantel.|
|I love the simplicity and beauty my angel gives to the mantel area.|
|This is my other corner of the back dining room. This area is still a work in progress. I did hang back up my old door and the birdhouses. I am still tweaking this corner.|
|Kept my old blue skates out from my Christmas decor. Love the pop of light blue color the skates add for some winter decor.|
|It keeps that corner of the dining room light and brings in my love of the garden that is outside the french doors of this room.|
|Terry made me this old bench out of that old chippy cabinet door in the above before dining room picture. The old legs he had in the shed. Love that man and his use of tools lol!|
|I painted my chalkboard hanger white that was made out of an old headboard and rehung it back up over the bench.|
|More little love birds in this wreath on the door going out to the flower garden and deck area.|
|I love my flowers and deck in the summer months so it was fun to add the vintage garden pieces to my dining room decor. Right now those french doors lead to snow and freezing cold!!!!|
|Remember the cabinet I inherited from Terry's Nana. This is the piece re loved with some new paint and a new cabinet door. I was really close with Terry's grandmother so I treasure this piece and all the memories.|
|They hinged up nicely to the old side light windows I had already hanging in this space between the kitchen and dining room.|
|Whew!!!! last area. Are you still with me and not on picture over load lol! This is where my mantel use to be and now I have this old picket fence and old rusty garden bench here.|
