Here is where we started (I've lost track of how many weeks ago)...
No longer the boring brown-on-brown-on-brown dungeon, I love how bright and happy this room feels now!
If you've been following the stages of this beer budget room makeover you'll remember it started with Phase One: Adding a Board and Batten Wall.
Then Phase Two: Painting the Dining Room Built-In China Cabinet.
Not being completely happy with how the Vintage Dining Room Suite looked in this space (which has since sold) we went on a thrift store hunt for Phase Three: A Thrift Store Duncan Phyfe Table Makeover.
One morning Mr. Frugalista decided to pop into a local thrift store while doing errands. When he sent me a picture of four chairs from his iPhone I had one of those "start the car - start the car" moments Phase Four: Thrift Store Duncan Phyfe Chairs.
Not being able to find more Duncan Phyfe chairs we built Phase Five: Thrift Store Headboard & Footboard Become A Beautiful Dining Bench.
In between phases of the makeover I took an inexpensive mirror I purchased at Wal-Mart and made An Ordinary Mirror Look Antiqued.
While I was at it I decided to give our Vintage Silverware Chest a chalk painted French makeover...
Putting it all together, the room now looks like this...
You can see how I painted the upholstery on the chair in the forefront From Burgundy to Red.
