We wanted a bigger table, so when we found this on Craig's List, we were sold. We sanded it down, and painted the table.
These 8 chairs were $25 a piece, a steal! The placemats and decorations are from IKEA. Chandelier and clock - $90 on eBay!
The room still felt like it needed something, so we got some free pallets and got started!
We used a nail gun to nail woods into the studs in the wall, and we're loving our new accent wall!
Our new dining room! I found a painting someone threw away and decided to hang it opposite the accent wall.
It took a few coats to get rid of the green, but look at the difference!
I love chalk paint - very little prep time, and the paint goes a long way. I prefer to thin it down a bit and apply an extra coat
I did not want a solid color. White was the best color to offset the grey and give the cabinet a light, clean and airy feel.
Those doors were time consuming, but totally worth it! Look at that gorgeous two-toned look!
I absolutely look complimentary fabrics and coloring. I'm loving how these chairs came out!
BEFORE: I was ready for a Farmhouse style change and I wanted something easy to install. Enter think brick veneer!
I used tile adhesive and let itset for 48 hours. I had to cut some of the bricks and used a wet tile saw.
After the adhesive was set I applied the grout in between the bricks with a grout bag. I smoothed with my fingers.
Using clamps and screws, we screwed the wood panels onto the front of the drawers.
Stained the panels to perfection using the golden oak stain from Minwax.
Here's another way how a quick DIY project can update your whole room!
I also added two more vertical pieces ( 1X4s) in the middle, using my trusted level for everything.
Using a jig saw, I measured and cut holes for the outlet covers.
Painting the panel before I added any vertical pieces made everything go so much quicker!
I decided to keep the ledge at 2 1/2" wide and it works perfectly.
We chose and underlayment from Home Depot and had them cut it there on the spot. Totally worth it!
Using a nail gun, we staggered the boards as we went, giving us a real shiplap look
We are so thrilled with our new dining room! Bright and airy, with that special Joanna Gaines touch!
