Dining Room Makeover Reveal

Friday, 5 October 2012

Hello Strangers! Thank you so much for hanging in with me the past few weeks! With school starting and having surgery, it's been slow going in the furniture biz!

My dining room makeover started about 6 months ago. And it's been done for 2 months, but of course I just took pictures this week. I don't have any true before pictures of my previous dining room, but these pictures give you an idea. Pretty blah and boring...and not calming at all.

This is my uncle with my older 2 boys about 20 months ago. Photobucket Photobucket
This is the huge hutch that took up 1/3 of the room

First thing we did was paint the room. The yellow was pretty hideous. Yellow rooms certainly have their place, but it was not right in this room. Second, I was over the matchy furniture and I was VERY over the huge hutch. I put it on Craigs List along with the 4 side chairs. The chairs sold almost immediately. The buffet was a wanted item...but the top/hutch not so much. So I ended up selling the buffet to one person and giving away the top of the hutch. Darn thing was so heavy that I was glad to be rid of it.

I ordered 4 of these chairs to mix up the matchy furniture...on clearance at target.com!

I also got my parents old buffet to replace the beast...you can see that post here.

Before I get too wordy, here is the reveal!
