Dining Room Before & After

Saying goodbye to my chandelier!  Do you remember how long it took to find the exact chandelier I wanted.  For over a year I searched for a vintage light fixture I could afford.  When I couldn’t, I looked to Lamps Plus.  Yay…I found one that looked vintage at a reasonable price.  I don’t know what my next house will look like but hopefully Lamps Plus will still offer this light option if it fits to the style of our new home.DSC_0387You just can’t appreciate the difference until you see what this space looked like before..Vertical blinds and builder grade lighting.  Pretty outdated and boring.  With the purple tint on the walls, the space seemed dark and dingy.Dining Room Before & After ~ Vintage Street Designs (1)

DSC_0389We bought and sold several dining room sets until we found what we loved.  All purchased from local auction houses.  The rug came from West Elm and the curtains are from Bed Bath & Beyond.  My dad made the hutch for me years ago and I continue to treasure it.

DSC_0475The old window was a gift from my brother.  It came out of the old farmhouse he now lives in.


DSC_0395I have sat on this window seat many times watching my husband take care of our pool.  He makes such a cute pool boy!DSC_0384I hope everything fits in the truck when it’s time to move!

    • Thank you so much Anne! The first night I had the chandy up I couldn’t make myself turn it off. It was so pretty. I went to our bedroom and had my husband turn it off. lol
