Ooh friends, I am so, so excited to show you the before and after of our dining room makeover! As you can see from my dining room style post here I went with a Navy accent wall (Hale Navy HC-154 from Benjamin Moore) with white, gold, and textured accents. The other wall and the rest of the main living is painted with the lovely Classic Gray OC-23 and because we like a challenge we also are painting ALLL of the trim, doors, windows, and cabinets the perfect white, which is also Benjamin Moore – White Dove OC-17, Satin Impervo.
Although I am waiting to get the perfect Jute rug and saving up some money to splurge on a gold sputnik chandelier here, I’m in love with that mid-century mod style with hints of natural elements (greenery, wood, etc). The bookcase and bins/baskets are all from Ikea and the Eames rocker is from my wedding registry. I luckily received the table as hand-me-down from my sister (I believe she picked up at a garage sale), and scored the awesome chairs from a friend for free! I’m planning on recovering the chairs and possibly staining them darker, as well as cleaning up the base of the table.
For the gold accents, I spray painted my ikea double curtain rod (see the photos at bottom) as well as created the wall art display with gold wire and clips. I also do plan on doing board and batten on the wall in the future..as it’s simply beautiful!
I couldn’t decide what I wanted to put above our bookshelf, so I purchased a 24×36 frame (hobby lobby 1/2 off for $32) and hand painted a quote on it (with marker paint pens). I haven’t yet decided if I’m leaving it there, hence why it is not up on the wall..I might put it in our bedroom :)
Below are a couple before and after (with iphone photo quality)..but it give you an idea of our little makeover! (and seriously…how amazing would a new chandelier be! My husband thinks the one is just fine, but I feel otherwise).
