Another year, another dining room makeover! This time, though, I am getting the look I truly want!
Last week I scored 4 matching Windsor chairs on Craig's List and found one solid oak Windsor chair in great shape at the dump. Now my dining room furniture is exactly the style I want it to be. Time to give all the mismatched furniture a makeover to get my dream dining room!
This is what my dining room looks like right now.
On the purchase list is this chandelier from Lowes which will complete the style that I am shooting for.
Here is the rest of the dining room:
And this is my dream dining room:
The walls will be painted in Almond Cream by Behr, the curtains which are the same colour as that paint shade will stay. The chairs are being painted matte black and the chandelier I'm buying will replace the cheapo one I found on Craig's List last year.
I'm still deciding what to do with the hutch and the table base. The table top will be sanded and stained darker. I love the turquoise hutch but wonder if maybe it's time for it to go black... or linen white ... or some other colour???
What do you think?
Have a happy week!
