One Room Challenge - Dining Room Reveal

Well, it's a wrap. 
Not a total makeover but a good old-fashioned refresh.

To do list:

New lighting - purchased new lamps. Contemplated more modern chandy and sconces. Didn't get that far:)

New carpet - ordered but not in so I borrowed the chunky one from my family room. Totally works.  Most likely will like it better than the one I ordered.

New mirror- check.
Paint furniture - did that.
Bar cart? - borrowed from living room but its staying.
New art - yep. not sure if its staying... jury's still out.
Host chairs- ordered not here yet but did borrow these two Lee Industries chairs and they look fab:)

I installed the wall covering about 4 years ago but I wanted to paint below the chair rail the cool blue/minty green found in the background of the paper to wrap my room in that fabulous color. Probably should have painted crown and base boards???

And the star of the show... the window treatments. Thank god they made it and were hung last night.

Feel of the room that I was shooting for?
Pretty, classic and tailored yet bright and cheery!

So check it out below...

 

The pillows you see in this shoot were not fabricated for this space... they're actually for a client but they looked so good in here that I'll drop them to her tomorrow! Thanks L! xo
 
 
Window treatments are a two-step cornice box with lined panels made of 100% silk and trimmed in a 2 1/2 inch wide, bright orange trim.
This is the only delicate material in the room. I placed benches in front of the windows too keep dog noses and kid's hands at arms length.

Bar cart is Bungalow 5.
 
 
 My furniture was professionally painted in high-gloss revere pewter from Benjamin Moore. Tip: This is the perfect neutral  paint if you want to keep your room and furniture light and airy... looks much lighter on furniture than it does on walls and I LOVE it!!
 
 

 

 



 









This is what the room looked like before I started.... not horrible but unfinished.


And Now


 
By the way I love these window treatments so much I find myself staring at them constantly smiling inside:)


So there you have it!!

Thanks for reading!!

Thanks to my girlfriend Joanne Posse photography who took these pictures! LOVE her! And to Steph Shaw Designs for her advice and support and NB for the ice bucket! HA!

Check out the rest of the linking participants here! I'm heading over now:) Thanks to Linda at Calling it Home to compel me to finish this space~ xoxo

  20. Absolutely stunning! I have a very similar dinning room table that serves as our main dinning table in the kitchen, white antique legs and dark wood top. The buffet in all white in the BM Pewter color and the light blue and orange curtains make the biggest impact by adding light and an airy feel! I have a major blue color crush and you nailed it! Those chairs and of course the bar cart from Bungalow 5 is so chic! Too bad you can't keep the pillows. BRAVO on a job well done! It's been a pleasure participating in ORC with you this round!

  44. I love those white lamps! Great transformation! Would you mind sharing with me where you bought the bar cart? I know it was borrowed from another room but I am in the market for one. I ordered one for the ORC from One Kings Lane but they just notified me after several weeks of waiting for the back order that they can no longer ship it! Thanks!
