Friday was the Final Reveal of my client’s dining room! Talk about a fun day…showing up with a truck load of new furniture they had never seen and a complete redesign for this lovely couple!First things first, we started with a beautiful new chandelier as the centerpiece of the room. I had picked this out especially for them at Market in LasVegas a couple of weeks ago.Next, the dining room table moved into place. I chose a two-tone finish using CeCe Caldwell’s Vintage White and Young Kansas Wheat. If you missed any of the earlier posts, the homeowners plan to use this space for entertaining and playing games. They have another dining area for eating and really wanted this space to function in a different way.
The chairs turned out beautifully with their newly upholstered cushy seats.Closeup
Love this fabric, a perfect match to their already installed drapes.You can’t have a game room without storage right? Here’s the link to all the finishing details of this dramatic makeover. Jeanene, my client, had already been shopping for accessories and had so many beautiful things for me to decorate with. I just brought along a few treasures to mix in with hers. My only contribution to this gorgeous vignette is the vase sitting on a couple of vintage books. If I can save my clients money by using existing items they already own, all the better!Before
The goal was to open up the room. With a little rearranging of the furniture, I was able to accomplish just that! The table has a large leaf that can be added when entertaining. The rocking chairs can easily be turned as needed for visiting during large gatherings.The living room before photo.After…they really wanted to display their beautiful stained glass fireplace screen so it could be enjoyed by all. I had the guys center the trunk under the window and place the screen on top. Now the sun shines through and the beauty of the stained glass really sparkles.This wall sconce is something I brought along in my basket full of goodies. It really plays up well next to their very pretty rustic mirror.I went shopping in other rooms of the house to pick out items for display.I was also commissioned to reupholster this vintage chair that sits at the built-in desk in their kitchen. Oh là là, so pretty!And the final piece ~ I painted the top to this old sewing machine stand using CeCe’s Virginia Chestnut, Vintage White and Young Kansas Wheat. Sealed it with a mixture of Clear Wax and Aging Cream. This was placed in their family room as another place for their wonderful neighbors to enjoy a cup of coffee when they stop by for a visit.
The entire makeover was complete by 1:00pm and my hubs and I were taken out for lunch by Jeanene and her husband, Dick. They took us to a wonderful Chinese Restaurant we had never been to before (and will definitely be back to). It was so sweet of them and we’re happy to have made new friends!
Hope you enjoyed the tour. Until next time…
