We finally finished the dining room enough to post it on the blog.
Here are the before pictures that Albert took while we were touring the house before we bought it. The furniture is the previous home owner's. The walls are sage and red. We painted the red wall first (I was excited to change it) on the 4th of July, which took many coats of paint.
We sold the pendant light on Craigslist since it wasn't really our style.
We used the same paint as we used in the living room, Nimbus Grey from Benjamin Moore. I bought the table cloth on clearance at Target. We got the table and chairs on Craigslist and recovered the chairs ourselves with material we bought on sale at Hancock Fabrics. Albert replaced the pendant light with one we bought at Home Depot.
The pictures are from IKEA, the same ones we had when we first got married. Albert received the cabinet from an old co-worker before we were married and I bought the bookends from Pier 1 Imports.
We bought the curtains on clearance from Target and the dish on the table is from Sam's Club.
