For the past few weeks I have been helping a sweet friend update her dining room. The difference is quite dramatic.
The photo on the left shows the before shot: chocolate brown walls, brown hardwood floors, and brown wood furniture. The furniture was on loan from her grandmother until she could find something that she wanted to buy. All of the new furniture, with the exception of the settee, was purchased second hand and repainted. The chairs were a lovely brown with floral upholstery.
Chair seats and joints were numbered to make re—assembly easier.
All loose joints were glued and clamped to dry.
Everything was given a fresh coat (or five) of paint and glaze.
We decided to add a dark edge to provide an added detail to the table top.
Because we could not find a suitable used settee, we purchased a new one and painted it to match the chairs.
I happened to run across a pair of lamps for the buffet.
I really like the crackle finish.
This little tea caddy shaped box was painted and glazed in the dark accent color.
Thankfully, everyone involved in the project was pleased with the results! Thanks, NP, for giving me artistic liberty!
I’ll be joining Metamorphosis Monday at Between Naps on the Porch and Wow Us Wednesday at Savvy Southern Style.
I've had several emails regarding the new color of the walls. It is Svelte Sage by Sherwin Williams.
