Today, I decided to talk about a room that doesn’t get a lot of attention here on my blog…our dining room.
I’m not exactly sure why, but over the last 7.5 years, I’ve shared various other rooms in the house and you’ve seen glimpses of the dining room in the background of photos, but today, it’s the star of the post!
When we built our house (it was finished in May 2014), we went heavier and darker all over, but in the recent year or two, we’ve lightened things up including this room here. I tried to find a good “before” pic, but the only ones I could find were from a holiday party in 2018. Nevertheless, you get the idea.
This was our dining room before…
And now, here is our dining room today…
We still have our original table and chairs (we just recovered the chairs), but we replaced the rug, the window treatments, the art, the chandelier, the sconces and we painted the room (Sherwin Williams’ Moderate White, of course! The trim is Antique White.)
A lighter, brighter and fresher dining room 🙂 .
Now, what I really want to point out to you is this art here…
…my mom told me about a place called Urban Garden Prints where you can order one of their many prints in a variety of colors, patterns and sizes. I loved this bird trio, but there are seriously so many more to chose from! After my prints arrived, I just took them to Hobby Lobby to be framed. It was super simple!
Do you use your dining room? I will say that now that we have revamped ours, we use it SO MUCH MORE! Andrew eats breakfast in there every morning, we often eat lunch or dinner in there…I don’t know? All of a sudden, it’s become a popular spot in our house.
Okay, if you missed our other recently added/renovated rooms, they’re right here…

I’m sorry I didn’t do a great job sourcing things, but when I went back to look, I couldn’t find the chandelier or the rug online anymore. The chandelier is from Restoration Hardware and the rug is from Pottery Barn.
Happy Thursday! See you guys tomorrow! xx
