I recently finished my very FIRST decorating gig, and am still pinching myself that someone allowed me to bring my ideas into their home!  My sweet clients recently knocked out a wall in their home to create a GORGEOUS new kitchen.  Let’s admire their kitchen for just a moment….

WOW, right? So, after completing this remodel they felt like they wanted to “refresh” the rest of the living spaces in their home…and that’s where I came in! They have been kind enough to allow me to share, so today I am going to be sharing the dining room makeover!

DINING ROOM BEFORE

DINING ROOM AFTER:

The gold and crystal chandelier was replaced with a traditional, but updated silver fixture.  All the dining room table and chairs are the same, but upholstered chairs with nail head details (a favorite of my client’s) were added to each end.  You can find her chairs here and similar here and here.  The rug also made a HUGE difference in this space, and is indoor/outdoor so it lays flatter and will clean easily.

The buffet and hutch are the same but were painted by The Rustic Door Texas, a super talented husband and wife team.  If you are local, be sure to check out their amazing pieces here! We changed out the hardware with leftover hardware from the kitchen remodel.  You can find similar pulls here.

The hutch was empty before, so I styled it with my client’s family china, glassware, pitchers, platters and created levels with cake stands.  You can find budget-friendly pitchers, cake stands and platters at Home Goods and Marshalls to fill space alongside your upscale pieces!  Online you can order pitchers here,  here , and here.  Cake stands here and here.  Platters here.

The table scape makes the room brighter and more polished.  I found the runner here, available in three colors at World Market …one of my favorite stores!  Natural fiber chargers can be found here.  The Tabacco baskets on the wall are from Hobby Lobby in their new farmhouse section.

  This simple dinnerware set for six can be found here and I added these bowls for a pop of color.

These black and white botanical prints can be purchased here as an instant download and printed at your local print shop.  Frames and mats are from Aaron’s Brothers framing.  Adding curtains also made the space more light and airy!

We moved out the chest that was here and replaced it with this upholstered storage bench with nail head details.  Bench, throw and pillows are from Home Goods, but similar benches can be sound here and here.

All these little changes helped transform this dining room into a lighter and brighter space!  I hope my clients will enjoy family dinners and holidays in this room for years to come!  Also, in my mission to use Crisp Collective to give back, a portion of what I was paid for this job will be donated to Habitat for Humanity…adding new life to an existing space and doing a small part to help create a NEW space for families in need…win/win!  I am thankful for the opportunity, and am thankful to you for checking it out!
