Excuse the lack of updates, I've felt as though I've been run over by a mack truck this last month. Last we spoke of the dining room makeover, I had showed some items I was purchasing or had purchased for the dining room. The green jute edged pillows were a big element in my design and unfortunately they had to go bu-bye. They were a little too, well, unsightly green in person and entirely too big for the chairs that I bought them for.
Green, however, is still a big element in the house's overall design. I'm very excited for how I'm going to try and bring it into the dining room. Figuring out how to implement it on a budget will decide if we go that route. Want a hint? Watercolor....that's all I'll say for now.
Progress but not finished:
|That door is an eyesore! I can't wait to update it as well!|
|The chairs are from Restoration Hardware. I believe the difference in their design for this popular chair is that it's unfinished raw wood. The rug is sea grass from Home Depot. It was so much cheaper than the Pottery Barn I was considering.|
|The coral chandie is from Ballard Designs. I chose globe lights so that it didn't look too traditional in here.|
Now, I just need to incorporate paint, moldings, a new door, a host and hostess chair, some art, and let's not forget finish the sun room!
