CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE REFRESH: THE DINING ROOM REVEAL!


Oh happy day, the Dining Room is finished, and I have the blisters and hot glue gun burns to prove it!  If you follow me on Instagram you've walked through many of these projects with me, so without further adieu, here's the Dining Room reveal!



It's been so fun (and frantic!) to be a part of the Choose Your Own Adventure (3 week!) Refresh hosted by Jewel of Jeweled Interiors.  You all will be blown away by these 12 makeovers today, be sure to visit them all linked at the end of my post.

Today I'm primarily just going to share the "after' photos with you, because honestly... that's what you're here for, right?  Next week I'll share a follow up post with more details of what I did in the room.  



The room is a good blend of things I already had and a few new things. 







Some highlights of the changes-

I refinished the top of a vintage Thomasville table that I bought off of Craigslist.  The top has a gorgeous burl wood grain and I was excited about the potential to fit more people around this table because of the pedestal base.  I'm thrilled that we can easily fit 8 around the table now, and up to 10-12 if we add in the remaining leaf. 




I kept my vintage host chairs but repainted the frames (tips on that from last week's post).



Rather than the black and white trim around the back that was previously there, I made some new cording out of some leftover malachite fabric


Curtain Fabric  ||  Floral Fabric (expensive, but on sale!)  ||  Geometric Chair Fabric


The most dramatic change in the room is definitely the side chairs.  I just about worked my fingers off this week reupholstering them (remember these used to be in my Breakfast Nook, I stripped them down and painted the frames).  That staple gun and I got to be close friends!  The designer fabric samples that I bought worked out perfectly for the backs of the chairs. 


The other addition that really elevated our limited wall space was the pair of brass Garden City sconces from Hudson Valley Lighting.  The finish is absolutely perfect and they add the coziest glow in the evenings.  But even more than a night time glow, I love looking at them during the day.  They added some dimension, shape, and height that we needed flanking the china cabinet. 



I enlarged a couple of favorite family photos for the artwork but wanted something a tad different, so first I used the Waterlogue app on my phone to give them a watercolored look.  Last week I was debating on frames, however the bamboo pair won out and I stacked them with Blue Willow platters to add a little more bulk.











And since we all love a before and after, here's a reminder from just a few weeks ago.  Definitely nothing wrong with it, I just wanted to make some changes to better suit our family and there's always room for improvement, right?  ;) 



One more look at the room today with just a few dramatic changes!



As I mentioned, I'll be back early next week to share more details about the room, be sure to stop back by. 



We all want to give a huge round of thanks to our Adventure Refresh sponsors, 
our spaces would not be nearly as fabulous without them!  





I can hardly wait to check out everyone else's makeovers today too, don't miss them!

  9. All I can say is WOW! I love the geometric print on the chairs, but I was skeptical about how it would work with the other fabric. You have an eye, girl, because it looks fabulous.

  11. I totally disagree "ANONYMOUS". Have you seen the other rooms in Jennifer's house? This is what she loves to live with and she's done this perfectly to her style. We all have different tastes and should appreciate each others creativity!

  16. All I can say is WOW!!! I am so thrilled there are people that have no problem with bright, cheerful and dramatic colors in their decorating. My beige and green decor is so muted and boring. Maybe I can start a little at a time and add some colorful touches. You are just amazing!! Well done and more.

  30. Love this room refresh! I learn so much from each of your projects! One suggestion - I had trouble funding the place to comment the first time. I had to return again and search hard. The word bubble alongside the pinterest and other icons is very subtle. Might you want to highlight the place for comments more clearly? Just a thought! Thanks for your inspo!
