Here is what it looked like when we toured it!
Yes, the homeowners painted all the trim green 😖
That light fixture was super 1980s… and who doesn’t love carpet in their formal dining room!?
However, I did love the built-in cabinet! Classic craftsman! And the dining room opens up into the living room to make for easy entertaining.
The first change was paint! The new wall color is “Silvermist” by Sherwin Williams.
We painted the built-in and trim white.
We tore out the carpet to find these hardwoods underneath- but it was just not in our budget to refinish them.
We changed out the light fixture. Props to my husband who picked this one out from Lowe’s.
Our dining table is from Pier 1. I got a great deal on it- around $500. It was on sale, plus I got more off for having a Pier 1 card and it was my birthday month!
The chairs and bench I bought off Wayfair. I especially love the bench!
I got this hutch off Facebook Marketplace for $75! At first I struggled styling it, but then I shopped around my house for the look below:
I’m really happy with how it turned out now! I especially love how the pinks pop against the wall color and how they jive with the copper mugs from my buddies over at Copper Cure!
My absolute favorite piece is the pink clock from Michaels!
In all, this room may have been my favorite update. I think it’s the most dramatic and honestly, the dining room is maybe my favorite in the house because of all the memories we’ve made in it from dinners to craft time.
