Per request, I am finally showing you my dining room reveal! It feels like we have been doing this project for a LONG time, but it's only been a few weeks. With the sanding, the painting, the fabric, and finding just the perfect items for the room, it took a while to get it just the way I wanted it. But it's D.O.N.E.
So, happy Friday, here is my shabby chic dining room makeover. Enjoy!
The after: It's simple, it makes the room feel bigger, it's refreshing.
List of things we did:
*Painted the chandeleir black and removed the lamp shades
*Removed the top half of the hutch. It was too big for this space and I didn't like the fact that it made it so much harder to see my beautiful antique pieces.
*Painted white shelves and put them where the top half of the hutch used to be.
*Painted the bottom half of the hutch a light blue. Spray painted the hinges and metal work a bronze color.
*Painted all of the chairs white (4 coats)
*Painted the dining room table white on the bottom - stained the top a dark, dark brown.
*Changed the fabric on the chair cushions to a nice light gray.
*Put up 100 year old shutters from the Richmond city area - true antiques!
The paint was bought at Sherwin Williams.
We used Rustoleum spray paint for the chandelier and the hutch hinges.
We bought the fabric from Fabric Unlimited.
We found the beautiful antique shutters at Caravati's Inc. Architectural Salvage. AMAZING place!!
I love that the room is so much brighter now and we still kept the room feeling formal. Our first meal in this room is going to be great - we love the changes and hope you do too!
Well - what do you think!?
