Dining Room Makeover

We’re back with another room redo from Kristy! This time she upgraded her out-of-date dining room with a fresh coat of paint and some new furniture and accessories – and it changed the whole vibe. From dark and drab to bright and beautiful, her dining room transformation is one for the books! Take a look at the redo below.

This is the dining room before – not bad, but it definitely needed a little love! A fresh coat of paint and some new, carefully curated furniture and accessories would make this a brand-new space. I couldn’t wait to get rid of the beat-up table and the decades-old curtains.

Step one: pick the paint color! This gorgeous green is “Eden” from Hearth and Hand with Magnolia.

Here you can see the room mid-transformation. The new green paint color is sleek and contemporary, and blends seamlessly with the other upgrades I’ve made in my home!

A new dining table set and light fixture took the old, dark feel of the room and turned it into a fresh, modern farmhouse vibe! The light wood table and neutral chairs are classy and sophisticated, and the open-frame pendant light is eye-catching without being overwhelming.

Another small change that made a huge difference was replacing the old valances with these gorgeous sheer curtains and new curtain rods! They make the room look soft and bright, allowing plenty of natural light in while still feeling cozy and warm. See how I made that beautiful floral arrangement here.

And the completed look!! This new rug helps to open up the space and add a little dimension. It also helps the room feel finished – it ties together all the pieces. You can grab the faux marble-topped side table here, and check out the dining table decor here.

Thanks for reading! Let us know what you think of Kristy’s dining room redo in the comments below xo.
