This finishing touches came in the spring, with a new rug (which I diligently saved up to purchase), an up-cycled light from the Habitat Re-store and some decor accessories including toss pillows I sewed myself.

It took several months of hard work and patient saving, but I am so happy about our dining room makeover. It's exactly what I had envisioned and it's so nice to have a beautiful and inviting space for family meals.
There are more photos and a couple more posts about the makeover process over on my blog, I hope you stop by to take a look. Have a wonderful day!
