The dining room in our house isn’t that big, but it feels like a big space because of it’s openness. st I thought it was a lot smaller when we first looked at it because it was so cluttered. And I didn’t even know it had a window!
Here are the before pictures.
|there was so much stuff in here that they couldn’t even fit the table in properly! and that cabinet on the right is hiding a gorgeous window.|
The major change we did was to paint the walls brown. I was so glad that David agreed to this because I think it’s a major improvement over the nice, but boring beige walls. We also put very little furniture in the room to keep it feeling light and open.
|as you can see, all we have in here is our table and chairs and a plant|
|this is the window I didn’t know we had until we moved in. we put David’s avocado plant here because it gets lots of natural light (yes, avocado! he grew it from seed).|
I’m really pleased with our dining room now. I think the brown paint is really classy, but cozy. And it picks up the dark knots in the wood paneling as seen in the above picture. I especially love my big Morning Glory sign! You can read it’s “story” here.
The next then&now I’ll post is our main bathroom…check back soon!
