Dining Room Before and After

Monday, March 20, 2017

Our dining room is done (minus new flooring/rug)! We just got the chandelier in the mail over the weekend and installed it on Sunday. M worked his hiney off installing the board and batten and I helped a smidge caulking and painting it. It was tedious but we are so pleased with the results. It updates and brightens that room a ton and it's the first room you see when you walk in the front door so I'm happy it looks good. Here is the finished product...

chandelier: shades of light, baskets: target, table: made by M, chairs: yard sale, curtains: BBB, runner: target

And before...

I love how the board and batten molding gives the room more character and texture. Slowly but surely we are turning our track home into something more personal. It's something M and I enjoy doing together which makes it more fun. Happy Monday!


  1. Such a nice update! Love the batten board and new chandy!

  2. It looks amazing!! It's crazy how something small can make a big difference :)

  3. Love the board and batten. I want to do that or beadboard or shiplap in my dining room. It's a dark blue, not quite navy and it needs to be lightened up to balance it. :) Great job! It made such a difference.


I love reading what you have to say! Leave a comment...it makes my day!
