I’m going to officially call our dining room done! (And unofficially add…for now.) It’s not fun for me to be done, done.
Since I’m calling it done, I want to give you a tour and share my shopping sources. *this post contains affiliate links.
If you’ll remember back to this situation.
I tried to strip the wallpaper but the floral design underneath had to have been the age of the house….maybe it was printed on the sheetrock. It wasn’t coming off. I did a skim coat of wall mud then primed over everything. I painted the whole room Sherwin Williams “useful grey”.
I painted the paneling and the baseboards in hopes of making the room look as big and streamlined as possible.
Art to Frames was kind enough to supply the framed piece. It’s a print I bought and downloaded from etsy. You can find it here. Funny enough, I must love it because after I ordered it, I realized I had pinned it over on Pinterest a long time ago.
It was my fault since I shouldn’t have submitted the order the way I did but the leaf got cut off by the mat. It was covered up. Instead of printing another and hoping to make it look as good as Art to Frames did, I just drew the leaf over the mat on both sides. That’s a little 3-dimension fanciness for you.
I found the sconces (also found here) at a Habitat for Humanity Restore in the town over from us. It was 50% off day! $2.50 each! woo woo. These are supposed to be patio lights and technically they hang like this.
Since I had already painted the chandelier black, I chose to paint these krylon fusion metallic gold so things wouldn’t look too matchy matchy. Here’s a picture of it.
I couldn’t find a link but this color isn’t yellow. It’s nice and muted. I love them. They’re casual. I like how they work with the shades of the chandelier. They add a nice detail without being too much.
I refinished the dining table last fall. You can read all about that process here. The chairs came with the table. It’s a set my husband has had since his bachelor days.
I gave them a few coats of ‘vintage blue’ and now they are a nice break from what could be too much wood tone.
I love the rug I got for the space.
See what I mean? It’s more vibrant in the picture. While the reds, golds and bluey greys are totally accurate, there is a lot more creamy white than the picture shows.
I do wish it was more like the picture because busy-ness under a table equals a better ability to hide stains from dinner…
I still love it so much.
The bench was actually our coffee table at our last house.
I sprayed the legs black and while it could stand to be a few inches longer, I love that we’re getting to use it here. It was my great, great Aunt Ruby’s. Having a dining bench opens up the room and the girls can slide in and out. No banging of big, clunky chairs.
The wicker piece was my nightstand. It’s a great added bit of storage in here. It holds our napkins, the girls utensils and pens and pencils for when they’re doing work at the table.
Someday floors will be replaced and things might change when we redo the kitchen but we love it!
