Dining Room Reveal

ok well, I finished the dining room! Of course there are still a few things that I may add in the future like crown moulding and maybe wainscoting but for now, I am happy with how it looks.

I was terrible about the pics in the dining room.  I forgot to take before pics!  I know that takes half of the fun out of  the reveal, sorry!  I did have these pics from a previous post. These are the cabinets that I  had in the dining room. They were red before. I added moulding to the doors, painted them white, and added wainscoting.

Here is what it looks like now!

The hutch was one of my "big" projects. I took off the doors to make it open. I used Annie Soans Chalk paint to paint it, This is Graphite. I thought it was going to be black but it is actually a little more gray. I love how it turned out. My milk glass collection really pops.

The scrabble letters add a bit of whimsy.

I added some vintage silver from a set that my Mom passed down to me.

A vignette I did with a shef and frame I also painted in the AS Graphite.

I love these bowls! Aren't they cute? I got them at Real Deals for 2.49

This is a vintage chandalier I purchased for 60.00 from Craigslist. I painted it black and made a white cord cover for it.  I think I might add some shades to it if I find some.

Here is my another big project. These were the red cabinets. I painted them white, added moulding, and the wainscoting. We also added new hardware to them.

And there you have it... I am done for now with the dining room.  The kitchen is coming soon! I would love to hear what you think so please leave a comment.
