Dining room make-over

  • I wanted to break down all of the changes that took place to transform this dining room from bare and dated , to a classically beachy style.
    • The most obvious change is the colour of the table and chairs , I hesitated painting this set for a long time , it was given to me by my mother and it was a very good quality piece . This was a very country flavoured piece , I would never go out today and pick a piece with this finish , "honey pine" so paint it I did , I now cherish this piece as one of my best makeovers .
    • the chairs fabric is also changed , as well I added upholstery tacs to the seats,for more style.
    • Recessed panelling which is my favourite style of wall trimming.
    • Paint colour , reflecting pool by CIL
    • the swinging door was added a charming feature.
    • the wall accessories
    • the two decorative brackets around the window area
    • the striped rug Dash and Albert
    • the ribbon added to the leading edges of the draped
    • new curtain rod
    • new window casings
    • wall sconce lamps

    Lots of work but not lots of cost still equalling lots of style.
