The Dining Room Makeover

Back in February we finally finished our dining room


Before, it had been painted dark green. The color itself wasn't too bad, but they used an ultra high gloss paint and  used a paintbrush to paint the ENTIRE wall. So you could see every brush stroke and it just looked messy.


It looked like this for about a year and a half before we bought furniture. 




The table we made ourselves, we found this neat wood at lowes and used the legs from another table and stained it. Although now we're not sure if it matches the dining room or not..



That basket had been there for months, and they never paid attention to it until I sat on the floor to take this picture. Now they go in it all the time!

I'm so glad I finally have a place to store and show off all my cute teas and teacups.

  5. Your dining room sure looks amazing now. You've done a wonderful job painting & decorating. Of course, the kitties are the best accessories and really give the room that homey, lived in look.

  6. The room looks fantastic! The colours you chose for the walls are just beautiful, and look much lovelier than the green they were before. I imagine it really brightens the room up too!
