I wanted to share with you our new and improved dining room. I wanted a clean, old south, farmhouse feel to it. Nothing in here is new, except the curtains. This was my first attempt at sewing my own window coverings. I just couldn't find the exact material I wanted in a package so I knew I had to resort to buying my own material and making them. The wall color is actually a gray. It's hard to tell in some of the pictures. The first one is the closest. It is from Wal-Mart called Prehistoric Stonehenge.
This was also our first attempt at crown molding. Ummm...let's just say Michael and I still love each other...
The hydrangea wreath is made from dried flowers I picked while in North Carolina. I little souvenir I preserved from the trip. The white plates are all from resale and thrift stores.
This is the same mirror I had hanging up but it was red and gold and didn't go with my new decor...so I painted it. Surprise, surprise.
Same thing with the table. Painted the bottom half.
So with just a little paint, some new curtains, and some new flowers a dining room is changed and updated. I'm sorry I don't have any before pictures. Yes, I'm kicking myself.
Have a great week.
