Dining Room Reveal

Nov 17, 2014

I'm so excited to finally be sharing the dining room today! Although we've had it painted for a while now, I wanted to wait until the dining room chairs were re-upholstered before sharing the room.

I initially thought that I could do the chairs myself, I mean how hard could it be? (ha!) But once we realized that the seat foam needed to be replaced and that the fabric section of the chair back would definitely pose some challenging obstacles, we opted to get them done professionally. They took less than a week to do and they turned out perfectly. We stuck with a neutral cream for the front of the chair, and, for something a little different, we chose a damask patterned fabric for the backs.

As soon as we bought the house, I knew that I wanted a black wall in the dining room. I'd seen a lot of rooms with black walls on Pinterest and loved the crisp contrast of black and white. They're also classic timeless colours which can transition with changing decor. Even though I was convinced that this would look fabulous, I was faced with a lot of objection. Everyone thought it would look out of place and make the room extremely dark. In the end, I'm glad I stuck to my guns. Once it was all complete with curtains and a new light fixture, all my opposers were big fans and loved the end result. Just goes to show that even in decorating, patience and perseverance pays off!

All done & just in time for Christmas!  I'll be sharing some festive tablescape ideas in the next few weeks.
