A dining room upcycle

Yesterday I showed you this picture....

And I know you have been hanging in suspense ever since.  Well, we finally finished re-doing our dining room chairs that were given to us by my mother.  These have been in her house my entire life and she decided to part ways with them.

Never one to turn down free stuff, plus a chance to upcycle, I gladly took them off her hands.

Before and After:

I am hardcore in love.  Completing these chairs brought us so much closer to having the dining room complete.  Or at least to a place that I feel I can step back and live with it for a while.  Like I have said, my home will never be "done".....much to my husband's chagrin.

Here is what the dining room looked like with the previous owners....

And here it is today...

We installed the new chandilier a few weeks ago and I adore it.  The Wall sconces on either side of the mirror will soon be replaced.  I am thinking some wall shelf sconces with some blue willow china ginger jars maybe?  My mother has a great collection of them packed away for a rainy day. 

Here are some inspiration pictures to give you an idea of what I am talking about...

The Enchanted Home

And maybe a few jars displayed on our yellow buffet table as well?  I am very excited about the idea.  What do you think?

Happy first day of Spring,

  1. I love the chairs! The cobalt blue paint really shows the graceful shape nicely. The fabric you chose adds so much fun movement too.
