10 Oct One Room Challenge: Week 2
Well, this first week of my dining room transformation has flown by, but I’m happy to report things are moving along and I’ve crossed a few “to do’s” off my list. If you’re joining me for the first time, you can see my original One Room Challenge post here . The first big project was refinishing our dining room table. It originally looked like this, all white and high gloss:
And this is the look I wanted:
I had to enlist the help of the Handy Husband to take the table top off and construct a new top using new boards that we distressed and stained. We loosely followed the instructions from Ana White’s blog
(I will give a detailed “How To” post at a later date). I painted the table base and legs SW Dover White, the same color as our kitchen island. Here’s a sneak peak of the new table…
My new rug is the Herringbone Jute Natural Fiber Rug from Ballard Designs
. They’re having a 15% sale on rugs through October 21st.
A small gray cabinet (from my kitchen) was brought in to put next to the mantle…
Blue curtains (that I already had) from Pottery Barn (no longer available) and new hardware now adorn the two windows.
Still deciding on paint colors for the walls so for now, that’s all folks!
