Dining Room Redo

One room we didn't paint when first moving in was the dining room. So, we decorated around the color which was fine until we redid the kitchen a few months ago. The kitchen flows right into the dining room and between the wall color and decor - it didn't match one bit! So Clay gave me the green light to let this be my next project! Check out a couple before pictures of the room...
I knew I wanted the paint color to be neutral so the first thing I did was decide on a fabric to recover the dining room chairs with and use the same for curtains. Luckily, that part was unusally easy! I found this sweet print from World Market for $34.99 a panel. I snagged 4 - 2 for the window and 2 for the chairs.

So one night Clay was out of town, I busted out the screw driver and took off all 6 cushions, loaded up my car and fabric and went to my parents! My mom covered all the cushions and even had enough fabric left to make napkins and a runner - can't wait for those. The chairs look amazing! Thanks madre!
8 screws per chair - this took FOREVER!


We used Tattered Sail by Olympic from Lowe's on the walls. I purchased the three large frames from IKEA and had some wedding pictures blown up to fit. So here we are! I still need to pick up a few things for the a centerpiece for the table, but there's no rush on that now.
What do you think? I love how much brighter it is now and the room flows so well with the kitchen.

Next project, the nursery!
