The Final Reveal Of Our Dining Room Makeover

I'm thrilled to show you the final reveal of our dining room makeover today. At last this room is finished. I chuckle as I write that because is anything really ever finished when you're a DIYer? In this post, we'll recap each phase of the makeover with links to each of the DIY projects.

The final reveal of our Dining Room Makeover

Here is where we started (I've lost track of how many weeks ago)...

Dining Room Before A

No longer the boring brown-on-brown dungeon, the white and lime green completely changed the energy of this space. The room looks and feels so much bigger too.

If you've been following the stages of this budget-friendly room makeover you'll remember it started with Phase One, installing a Board and Batten Wall.

In Phase Two we Painted the Dining Room Built-In China Cabinet.

We gave the original pedestal table and brown leather parsons chairs to our daughter when she moved out and replaced it with the vintage art deco dining set that I gave a makeover (pictured above).

But then in Phase Three, we found another table we liked more 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 I had one of those IKEA commercials "start the car - start the car" moments. In Phase Four we did the Thrift Store Duncan Phyfe Chair Set makeover.

Not being able to find more Duncan Phyfe chairs, in Phase Five we built a Thrift Store Headboard & Footboard Dining Bench

Another project I did for the dining room was Antique An Inexpensive Floor Mirror.

While I was at it I painted our Vintage Silverware Chest white with some French Country flair.
