I posted awhile back that I was wanting to do a mini makeover on my dining room. I had never really liked it before. The decor needed a little update.
Here is my *new* French Country Dining Room!
Here are the before pics in case you don’t remember …
This corner shelf was a wedding present from my mom. I had seen it in a little shop and fell in love, but my small college budget couldn’t afford it. My mom knew how much I loved old barn wood and surprised me with it after I got engaged. It was the first piece of furniture my husband and I owned :)
I filled the corner shelf with things I love.
Oh my word I love this mirror! I bought it at Home Goods for only $24.00! It started out a distressed black. But I thought It would look better sprayed Heirloom White. I attached barn wood to my wall and then hung the mirror on the old wood. I love to mix old and new.
I am so happy with how it turned out. I wish I had a wide angle lens so I could get back even further. It goes so well with the kitchen right across from it. The curtains have made a huge difference too. I had blinds before and was nervous to take them down because they functioned so well. But I LOVE the filtered light from the curtains and the privacy. We open them a lot too. I am so happy with them I am taking the blinds down in my family room, too, and putting up these same curtains. They are from IKEA and are called LENDA.
