Dining Room Reveal

Sunday, February 26, 2017

My dining room is finally done!   It is a mix of old and new pieces with dark gray walls and white built-in corner cabinets.   

My wall color is called Kendall Charcoal and it is by Benjamin Moore.  Above is a recent before and after.  Below is a before and after of the wall color.  I also redid the floors throughout the house, you can read more about my paint colors and the floor redo by clicking the "Erica's House" tab to the right.  

As you can see from the pictures above, I originally tried a smaller chandelier and a small oval table.  The table was from my old house and it just ended up looking lost in the dining room.   The vintage window also looked lost on that large gray wall. 

The room also needed a rug.  I bought this distressed looking white rug from Wayfair, you can check it out {HERE}.

I had curtains made from fabric I picked out at The Fabric Mill.  It is hard to see in the photo but the fabric is a heavy matelasse style.

I purchased a larger chandelier from Horchow.  I liked it because it has a distressed look to it.  You can check out the chandelier (HERE).

My dining room table and chairs are from ARHAUS.  The runner is from Pottery Barn.

The bread bowl was a vintage find from the Country Living Fair.   If you have not attended a Country Living Fair you need to find one near you! So much fun.

The shelf below is actually architectural salvage.  I found it at an antique fair.  I accented the shelf with a faux wreath and some milk glass.

I collect milk glass.  Most of my collection, I inherited from my Grandmother.  I like to think that she is happy seeing some of her possessions so proudly displayed. 

The huge mirror below used to be gold! I purchased it from Vicki's Vintage through a local Facebook group called Vintage Chic.  Vicki, chalk painted the mirror for me and lightly distressed it.  I love the way it fills the whole wall.  The column in the corner is another piece of architectural salvage.  I purchased it at the Sagtikos Manor Antique Show.

The old house poem was a custom Etsy order from House of Belonging.  If you end up ordering from them, please tell them I sent you their way.  They were a pleasure to work with and the quality is amazing.

The vintage arched window below was moved above a vintage dresser that I converted to a buffet.  I simply took off the mirror.  The candle sticks below are from Decor Steals.  The white pitchers are from Target, click (HERE) to check out the large white one.   It is perfect for flowers and so affordable.
