Hey Friends! I’m so glad that you are here. Thank you so much for stopping by.
I’m so excited to share our dining room makeover with you.
I have always dreamed of having a wonderful dining room with a table big enough to fit a large family. When we bought our home, I loved the bones of the house, but we had a lot of remodeling to do to the entire house to make it work for us.
This is the “before” picture of the dining room. The only word that I can come up with to describe this picture is, YIKES! It needed so. much. work.
This was our starting point. The wall was between our kitchen and dining room and had a built in cabinet that jutted into the room another two feet. It really cut off the dining room and living rooms from the rest of the living spaces and made the rooms feel small and compartmentalized.
We removed the wall, built-in cabinet, lighting and flooring. This really opened up the rooms beautifully.
I love how open the rooms are now. I can not only seat ten people around my table without having to move anything around, but I have extra room to bring in another table to seat an extra six people. That’s sixteen people at my dining room table. Nothing makes me happier than to have my table full of family and friends.
I absolutely love French Country Decor, so I chose to use vintage brick set in a herringbone pattern for the flooring. I added plantation shutters with green velvet drapes on the windows. I also changed out all of the lighting in the house with vintage lighting. I thoroughly enjoy the age that was added to a very plain 1980’s home.
This is one of my very favorite things about the dining room remodel. I grew up with this sideboard, so it means home and stability to me. My mom recently passed away and she gave me the sideboard. I couldn’t be happier and it fits so nicely next to the table.
I hope that you enjoyed the tour of the dining room remodel. There are other posts of the Kitchen Remodel and Living Room Remodel on my website and more to come.
Blessings to you,
