I apologize for the lack of posts. I've been focusing on other things and taking sort of a break for a short while.
So, what's going on with the makeovers? I'm looking for a light for my dining room that will go well with my sun-room/family room. The sun-room and dining room are very open to each other. I want something organic (not in the green sense of the word), something made from wood, or bamboo, etc.. . So far, everything is either far too expensive, the wrong stain of wood, or too small, ugh!
It's easy when you have unlimited money to put a beautiful design together.
Putting a room together on a super tiny budget is quite the challenge, though, if you want it to look right and not like a cheap room. It's Ok if it is cheap, just not OK if it looks cheap. It takes a lot of research!
Your rug is a big part of the budget. Choosing unwisely by grabbing a rug that is too small for the room and dining area can really chop up the look of your room by stopping your eye short. I don't want my room to look choppy so having a rug that is an 8' by 10' is a must for me.
I have my old dining table, that needs some work, that is going to have to do. Reusing my dining table helps keep expenses down greatly. It's a counter height, or rather was. To make it more comfortable, we sawed off several inches of the legs to make it normal seating height. *This is a very simple diy for those of you with counter-height dining tables that are sick of them but on a budget or just not wanting to get rid of a perfectly good table.
Here are some items I put together for a possibility for my dining room:
(Clarice dining Chairs, Domino Book of Decorating, Sabrina Wall Sconce, Pottery Barn Heathered Jute Rug, Visage Wall Mirror, Sweet Sorona Pillows).

|I purchased these already|
|This mirror represents the color of wood I'd like in the room.|
