My dining room has been done for a while, but I haven’t had time to take photos, upload them, and all that jazz. Anyway, now I am ready! So when I first bought the house, the dining room was a very very olive green color. I may have liked a shade of this color had it been a nice one, but after seeing this color I knew instantly I was going to cover it! Here is what the dining room looked like before:
Not to mention that there were a hundred holes in the wall from things that were hanging on the wall. It took some time to patch and sand, but it got done…..
I liked that it was a nice neutral color, and knew it would look nice against my dark espresso colored furniture. I re-used the curtains from my old house, because I loved them. They are a damask pattern with earth-tones running through it. I purchased the coolest chandelier from an Etsy dealer. It is so rustic, it looks like it spent the last 100 years in the ground.
I picked up a truly adorable sign at Vintage Thymes in Norwood, and I hung it above the dining room doorway.
Since I don’t have a ton of kitchen cabinet space, and I packed my side server pretty well… I had no place to put my wine glasses, martini shaker, ice bucket, wine etc…. I had been on the hunt for a while for a nice cabinet to use for this, but I didn’t want anything huge or bulky. On a whim, I found a cabinet at some warehouse! Randomly… but it worked out in my favor!!!
I may paint it at a later date, but it serves its purpose for now. I was able to put all my wine glasses away, and put my martini shaker and ice bucket on top. It needed a little something, and I had just the thing! I had gone to paint night with my mother a while back, and painted my own version of “Chat Noir.” I knew I would use it in the house eventually, but didn’t know where. Instead of using the colors red, yellow, and black in the traditional print, I chose to use blues, creams, black, and white. The colors work well with my color scheme. I put it on top of the wine bar as a finishing touch.
All that’s left to do? Have a feast fit for a king and fill my wine cabinet with lots of yummy wine!
