Home Decor:
Dining Room Update

9:00 AM

It has been quite awhile since I have shared our progress with redesigning our home. We completed our dining room setup back in February and I had held off on posting the update until I purchased the new furniture. Due to some unexpected projects around the house, I have decided to just go ahead and share our progress thus far and do another update once it is fully furnished. Click here if you missed the post about my original inspiration for my dining room.

Before doing the full reveal, here are a couple of before pictures. Getting rid of the beige walls was the most exciting project for me. I am still using the same dining room table set but other things have changed.

These pictures are from my children's party but you can see the room quite well. The original wall color was a yellowish beige on the top with a dark brown bottom, with a white trim. The flooring was a bit worn and scuffed up as well. I had some darker wine collection paintings on the wall. I also have my cat's tower and feeding area in a corner behind our table.

This is a better view of the flooring, it was the least scuffed up on this side but still had obvious wear.

Originally we were going to choose a pastel color to go in this room, as I had planned to paint the living room purple. I ended up changing that scheme and instead went for a nice lighter blue shade with an ivory trim.

On the left wall behind the table, I have a floral painting that I got from Ross. I do want to do more with this wall at some point but I do like the simple look it has now. We also covered up the bottom part of the wall with the same color, I didn't really feel the need for a contrast in this room.

For the outlet covers and light switch covers, I went with an antiqued copper coloring. I like the way it ties in my antique decor ideas that will pair with the new furniture.

The cat area is pretty much the same, I want to hang something on the wall behind it but for now I like keeping it more plain as the cats do play a lot in this area. As you can start to see the flooring, we did use a darker stain on it and patched up the scuff marks.

The dining room table is the same and I have a grey tablecloth that I do switch out seasonally. For the spring and summer, we pair it with dark blue place mats.

On the right side of the room, I have a wall sconce that ties in with the color palette I am going for. I also have an antique side table that I typically display fresh flowers or seasonal decor on.

The center of the room is where we have two large windows and our clock displayed. I do plan on buying dark grey curtains for these windows to complete the look.

We have high ceilings that flow throughout much of the upstairs. We do plan on removing this chandelier and replacing it with some barn style hanging lights.

Here is an overview of the completed look.

Lastly, a final comparison of the changes.
