Dining Room Reveal

Well, it's time.

It's taken me about two months to finish this redo. It's cost me less than $200 to redo about 4 rooms in my house, this one room cost me about $125 or so, including the paint and supplies.

Where to begin?? Ok...before...


After!


A closer look at the table...


One of these...


Became this, after some spray paint and stenciling...




This ugly Craigslist find...



Became this!!



The top of the table is stained. We had planned to do the same with the dresser, until we started realizing that while the dresser is wood, the top green layer was actually veneer. So I ended up painting it with a 98 cent tube of acrylic paint and some polyuerithane. It worked really well!


This window...









Became this...


These curtains..


Were replaced with these...


Not burlap, but still similar and just as cheap.

And I finally found a place for my beautiful wreath made of coffee filters...








I am just so happy with it. I could have just bought new furniture (well, I couldn't have, really.) But I wouldn't have been as proud of it. The dining table has character and a history. I am so proud of how that dresser turned out. I put blood and sweat into my new room and I couldn't be happier!
