dining room makeover details

by Angela on July 25, 2012

Yesterday I was finally able to get some better pictures of my dining room. I have been experimenting with my camera and actually starting to have some fun with the whole picture taking progress.  So, I thought I would share the new photos and give you guys all the details about what’s in this room.
The table was custom made by moi.  It is an antique base with a zinc top.  If you want the details on how to make one yourself, here is the post.

The bistro chairs I found at Kirkland’s, but there a ton of options for this style of chair.

I found the wicker chargers at World Market and the rest of the accessories are mostly vintage finds (my favorite!). I custom fitted the wine racks out of an existing rack that didn’t sell at Horton’s.  You can find a picture of what it started out as here.  I will also plan on doing a semi-tutorial next week.

The chandelier I found at Habitat ReStore about a year ago and I think it adds just a touch of elegance to an otherwise more primitive room.

The shelves above the buffet, I made from a pair of old corbels.  I attached them to piece a scrap wood to give them more stability before putting them on the wall.

I’m really happy how this room is coming along.  The walls need to be re-painted and I would like to add some molding but that will come with time.  The room is fully functional and I will just enjoy it the way it is for a while! ;)  {Could be a few weeks or a year…you never know with me!} chairs: similar versions here & here

Shut Up you got those chairs at Kirklands?! Fabulous. Still drooling. I love it all Angela! The table, the cart, the whole space is great. Fantastic job!

Thanks, Sarah!! I couldn’t believe how inexpensive the chairs where and it was like fate…they had exactly 6. It’s one of those things that you don’t think twice about OR call your husband! ;)
