For the most part, our dining room has been complete for the last few months, with the exception of some minor details … like stuff to hang on the walls. But after a few shopping trips I feel like the dirty deed is finally done. Here’s the dining room the way she looks today …
The walls were changed from Sage Green to Steam White by Valspar.
You can see the old dining room in a Christmas post here.
I found the script bamboo mat at a local boutique.
The china cabinet was given a fresh coat of semi-gloss white and the glass doors were stenciled on a whim.
You can read about the cabinet stencil project here.
I found the dry sink at Amazing Grace Antiques, just a few blocks from my house.
The shelf above the dry sink has become my rack for drying flowers.
The flowers drying in this pic are from my daughter Stephanie’s wedding a couple weeks ago.
I pulled them out of the bouquets before they could wilt.
The pillow on the right that says “Farm” is by Stacey at A Sort of Fairytale Girl.
Most of the mirrors are from Carter’s Cottage, which is where I get Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.
I love my little mirror collection! I have another collection of mirrors in the family room.
The old Victorian light fixture was gold and I painted it white.
I’m still thinking about replacing it. Can’t make up my mind.
Here’s the room from the other angle. The Windsor chairs are painted Graphite, with dark wax.
The smaller chairs from a flea market wear Duck Egg Blue with clear wax – all are Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.
The tabletop is painted Old White ASCP while its legs are Duck Egg Blue.
An old bookcase is tucked into the corner opposite the china cabinet.
In my opinion, a dining table should have fresh flowers on it.
These were picked from nearby fields and placed inside Ball jars.
Inexpensive and easy to do!
I found the old drawer at the flea market for just $5.
The vendor had a bunch of these drawers. I should have bought more than just one.
A little burlap tucked inside adds a little texture and softness.
The dining room is all ready for dinner, but now I’m too tired to cook.
Think I’ll go for a walk with hubby instead and enjoy a glass of wine.
