Dining Area Reveal

I am happy to say that our dining area finished!!  I am so happy with the outcome! I still find myself staring every time I walk through.  🙂  Isn’t that the best feeling!

If you have been following along you know that it all started by creating a clean slate per say with white walls.  I lived with that for several weeks, digesting it more or less.  (I really do like color, but sometimes you just need to wipe it clean to get a new perspective on the space.)  Then I started adding color back in.  First with the gallery wall and last with some sewing projects. Here is how it looks now.


It’s hard to believe that in the 12 years we have lived here we have never had drapes on this window.  The fabric I ordered from fabric.com – it is a premier prints cotton duck fabric and I love it.  This was my first time to order from them and I was very pleased. Quick delivery and excellent product.  This fabric was a great weight for window treatments.

I love pom-pom trim and couldn’t resist adding it to the drapes.

I will share a tutorial on how I made the drapes soon.  I tried a new method that was so easy.  The table got a little love in the form of monogrammed placements, custom made by me.

Let me just say, sometimes I get a grand idea in my head about what I want something to look like, thinking it’s going to be easy, and then it takes me a week to complete.  Ya, that was these placemats.  But, I love the result.

The kitchen also got a few custom touches of color.

More pom-pom fringe and some gingham for a little more fun.

Towel from IKEA made into a hanging towel. Using this easy to follow pattern that I found here.

Dollar Tree oven mitts embellished with rick-rack (actually from the scrapbook clearance isle).


I managed to include all of my faves in these projects – orange, pom-poms, gingham, and rick-rack!!  

Just in case you’re new here.  This is where we started in the dining room.


And the after again.

Oh!!  I totally forgot to mention the new chandelier!!  If you follow me on Instagram you saw this lovely craigslist score that my hubby found – new, in the box, $25.  Yes, that’s right!!  

It now looks like a dining area rather than an eat-in area. LOVE!!  Now I am off to clean some house and get back to work on my One Room Challenge.  Exciting things are happening there too!  Can’t wait to share :).

  1. How wonderful! It's always such a smile-maker to have a project in mind, and FINALLY see it to completion, isn't it? (It takes me way too long to get to the end sometimes!). You did a lovely job, and I love the creative touches you added with the custom oven mitts and place mats!

  2. Your dining room looks so fresh and clean! I love that you have orange as an accent color–it adds so much life into the room. What a cool blessing that you found the perfect chandelier for a great price. I get so excited about finds like that!

  3. Oh my, Denise! The white paint looks so bright and fresh and those panels and kitchen treatment are such a fun dose of happy!! The lively color, pom-pom trim…LOVE!! So excited for you that you were able to switch out the ceiling fan for a pretty chandelier!! Enjoy!!
