When Amanda moved into her new home several years ago, she did not have much furniture to furnish a larger area. Her dining room was on the 'back burner' for a while! First it served as a playroom for her girls, then as an office/music room. The problem with both was that it's the first room you see when entering her home. She loves Craig's List, so when she found an antique dining room suite for a steal, she sent me the link to get a second opinion. It was a great buy: 6 chairs, table, buffet, & china cabinet for $500!!
The next step was to paint the walls; she chose a vibrant red for the wall above the chair rail and gathered things from around her house that she wanted to use in the space like lamp bases and baskets....
Here's where I came in... She needed new fabric for the chairs, curtain panels, wall art, a centerpiece, lamp shades, ect.
Sadly, I don't have a "before" pic when the room served as a playroom or home office, but here's one before paint and accessories:
|The furniture is in great condition. The seats were covered in very outdated stripe...|

|I love these colorful plates from Target. I usually find all colors of cloth napkins at Pier 1, and I really liked this beaded napkin ring. The table runner is from Target too.|
