Dining Room Transformation!

This week we finally finished the dining room!!!! (With the exception of a rug and some artwork.) I love how the colors turned out together!

This is how the room was designed before we bought the house:

Although I really liked their decor, I had my heart set on mixing & matching a dark table with white chairs. So we started out with J's great aunt's table, which I love because it's a family antique and it's beautiful! Then, I prowled Craigslist for about a month and finally found the dining chairs that had just the style I was looking for. So the next phase looked like this:

I thought I was going to paint the chairs myself, but after realizing what a huge project this would be (and the fact that I have NO artsy-knack) I found a lady in town (The Dumpster Diva) who painted & distressed them for me. I DID recover the cushions on my own with the help of J's measuring and a very powerful staple gun. To finish the room off, we found an awesome rustic chandelier! And here's the final product:

I LOVE how it turned out! It was so nice to see my vision come together!!! Now on to the Living room!
