Happy New Year to you all!
I’m back with more details and pictures of our formal living room turned dining room. We got the room pulled together just in time to host a really fun Christmas dinner at our house.
It was lovely all dressed up for the holiday.
And a far cry from where it stood only a few days prior.
And here’s a few more pictures of what it looks like now.
The two bookcases will be emptied once the office bookcases are complete. I’m toying with the idea of having Steve add doors to the bottom and top of them to turn them into china cabinets. I have no idea if that’s even doable, but I would like 2 matching cabinets opposite each other in here. The one we have now is an old Ikea one I painted and has several chips (despite sanding and priming, the paint didn’t adhere very well to the laminate).
Also, it wasn’t until I looked at these pictures that I realized how off center the rug is. Looks like it can be moved a good foot toward the back wall. Amazing what you see in pictures that isn’t obvious in person!
Anyway, I am thrilled with the end result and so pleased to have this room put together.
Wall color: Benjamin Moore Coastal Fog
Light fixture: Hampton Bay Barcelona Chandelier
Upholstered dining chairs: Ikea Hendriksdal (I don’t think the armchair version is available anymore)
Sconces: Ikea Rodd Wall Lamp (spray painted gold and cord painted to match the walls)
Curtain fabric: Essential Stripe in Hickory
Chair Pillow Fabric: Braemore Fern Fabric
Bookcases and china cabinet are all old Ikea pieces purchased for our first apartment 7 years ago.
The rest was either passed down to us or purchased at an estate sale, antique market, or thrift store.
Not too shabby for such a hodge podge!
