Dining Room Makeover Reveal

Several weeks ago I gave some details on a couple room remodels we were getting ready to work on. With a few weeks and some hard work we now have one of the rooms finished. As for the other room... we haven't even started. I could choose to be disappointed or I could just be happy we have made some progress!

Today I am going to do the first room reveal, our dining room. 

Before I get started I want to say that a little paint can go a LONG way. The only thing that was changed in this make over was the paint color and the decorative items.

Let's see what you think of the difference.

Before
After

Before

After

See what I mean?

For paint we chose Behr's "Wheat Bread". it is pretty much the best color of graige ever.



Russell built the mirrors for Mothers Day. We used cheap door mirrors from Walmart and he made them new bulkier frames.


I made some Chevron Arrows from a pallet I had lying around. They aren't perfect but I love them.


And I accidentally found this print at Hobby Lobby while picking up some hardware for the mirrors. If you have seen the rest of our house you know that this picture ties in perfectly.


The new colors coupled with the addition of the mirrors make this space feel much larger and more welcoming. It also flows better with the rest of the house.

Less focus on putting the color on the walls more focus on adding a few splashes of it here and there throughout our home.


I am loving the new dining room. 
My only regret is not doing it sooner.

I can't wait to tackle the school room next.

Have you done any remodeling lately?

    L.O.V.E.!!! Come do my dining room. Any my living room. And my bedroom, too. Please. :)
    We are still trying to finish M2's room. I can't wait for that to be done. Then maybe I can start to think about tackling other rooms.

  6. I love love love the makeover! I am dying over your chevron pallets. You are so talented, really. You can do so much and I love that a piece of your work can be displayed in your home.

    We are going to do a similar canvas project like you had in your dining room before the makeover. I've found some pins and plan to give it a try myself. It will either be really good or horribly bad. I'll be sure to let you know which!

  20. Me too this color is just perfect for this space and our house you should totally check it out. One of my good friends loved it so much she used it in her kitchen :). Those arrows were so easy to make. The hardest part was ripping the pallet apart, like all pallet projects.
