Tomorrow's SUYL is Show us your favorite DIY project!!!! Plan to link up!
We have lived in our house for 11 years and everything has been pretty much the same since. I'm trying to make a few changes slowly. I decorated with a lot of red and green when we moved in and I'm trying to lighten up things and make it more neutral.
This is how our dining room has looked for a while. My in-laws gave us this table and chairs for a wedding present. I love the table and I LOVED the chairs but they have gotten worn over the years and I wasn't in love with the rooster pattern anymore.
Another view looking in. These are old and dark pictures.
I had framed a set of botanical prints on the wall.
So right at New Years, I found chairs I had been eyeing on sale at World Market so I bought four.
I had been wanting a settee and the ones I loved were all $600-$800 or up and then recently I found one on zulily for half that and ordered it and I LOVE it!!!
I bought new light gold colored frames and white mats at Hobby Lobby and re-framed the botanical prints. It really lightened them up!
We have to have work done on our dining room window at some point so I don't want to invest in anything on the windows just yet so I found some cheap curtains at T J Maxx that are working for now.
I'm loving my much lighter dining room!
Here are some similar chairs and settees I found.
