A run down

For the dining room I painted the harvest table and chairs two shades of cream they were 80's honey pine , I added a candelabra instead of electric fixture , recovered the chairs and added nail heads for style, I also added wall sconces to add ambient light for dinners , to start off I added recessed panelling to the walls painted white to give the house an older more character home feel as opposed to brand new suburban house feel.

Here I added mouldings to the staircase and painted white and black , as well as I added a berber runner. I painted this table blue and distressed it , and recently painted the wicker chair that was yellow this crisp black .
To the floating shelf I added old salvaged brackets I found at an antique market and cleaned up with a fresh coat of paint and added a pair of mirrors to reflect light and fill the enormous space of this double height room , it is one of the family's favourite spots to hang out , and floods with light in the afternoon.
