Our Dining Room Makeover

Hello everyone! I FINALLY am getting around to putting together this post to show you all our Dining Room makeover ~ Originally it had pink carpet and pink and white striped wallpaper. Now it has a more Shabby Chic look, which I love so much better! We removed the carpet to expose the original hardwood flooring; sanded it...sanded it again...and yet again, lol, then finally put down the stain and poly. Removed the pink and white striped wallpaper, and put up a Beadboard style wallpaper. We also sold the Oak dining room table, and had this fabulous farmhouse table custom made. The top is made from VERY old large barnwood planks. I painted it with Annie Sloan's Old white, but did a rub finish for the top so that you could still see some of the wood grain showing thru.








This sweet vintage cabinet was a Goodwill find for only $8. It was painted a cute baby blue, but I chose to paint it this fab pink color.



This very old farmer's wood caddy was found in an old fallen down barn by my husband, which he brought to me, and I gave it a makeover with Annie Sloan's Chalk paint in the Antoinette color.


I hope you enjoyed the photos of our dining room makeover!
Until next time sweet friends!
