Happy Friday, dear readers! It’s time for the dining room makeover reveal!
I’d intended to start with Amy’s bedroom this summer, and do the dining room later, but as it was extremely hot last week and Amy’s room is upstairs, we decided to paint downstairs where it’s cooler. (I’m happy to report that we’ve spent this week painting Amy’s room.)
The above photo shows what the dining room originally looked like when we bought this house…
I chose a pretty blue green for the walls. The color is called Drizzle. It’s a soothing color for our climate which is technically a desert.
Because Bing Bang Boomerang, the wonderful seller I bought my barkcloth from, sent me a little extra fabric, I had enough to cover the seat on my vintage telephone table, and make a valance for a window that previously had glass shelves hung in front of it . My husband also replaced the traditional light switch with a vintage push button switch too, for an extra touch of vintage authenticity.
I am so grateful for Amy’s help-she is such a hard worker, and I’m hoping to post pictures of her room very soon!
Have a wonderful weekend!!
