Before & After Dining Room

27 Sep

I wanted to share this dining room before & after because once again, simple changes have made a huge difference.  After we spotted Cole & Son’s Wood Wallpaper, we knew we had to have it! The existing paint color, Sherwin Williams Navajo White actually worked great with the wallpaper so no need to repaint the room.

New updated dining furniture, rug and mirrored buffet really glam this room up! My favorite change, the chrome and crystal chandelier!

Here are the before and afters!



Just incase you haven’t noticed, look at the newly stained hardwoods! They have gone from a dull yellow finish to a warm walnut finish. We had them hand scraped with the grain for added durability and texture!


The chandelier was more building standard and a little off scale for the size of the table.

AFTER: The chrome & crystal chandelier really opens up the space and compliments the shape of the table .

See this before & after featured on DESIGN REFUGE!!

    Hi Katie,
    The rug was a snag from my local TJ Maxx Homegoods!
