I watch a lot of HGTV and Joanna and Chip Gaines are always giving their carpenter the task to build  fabulous farmhouse tables for the decor in their client’s homes they have remodeled.  This table isn’t quite as large as some of the ones you see on the show, but this is a great tutorial to use … Continue reading Make Your Very Own Quaint Farmhouse Table!
Now, I’m not saying that if you really love the hot tub life that this wouldn’t work for you. Me? I’m not really a hot tubbing kind of gal. Especially not in the middle of the house. The “spa room” wasn’t my speed and I knew I wanted to remove it. Much to the kids’ dismay, the ability to remodel this room was a make it or break it for me. Either the hot tub went or we didn’t buy the house. Thankfully, we made it happen and the story is quite remarkable!
Cotton or linen fibers, brilliant sparkling glass, pewter highlights, and articulated wooden spindles give a well-appointed room a hint of authentic vintage-inspired flair. The proper balance, when mixed with cross back chairs and chairs covered in stitched tapestry designs, “clash” together in a harmonious mix that will make any throwback design an updated treasure.
There are also a number of health and wellness related benefits that accompany opening up a kitchen into a dining room. For example, open concept kitchens generally create more natural light in the home, which helps to improve mood and productivity. Plus, the lack of walls will help facilitate more social interaction between family members, which can lead to better communication and relationships in the home.
DO use cohesive design elements. Just because you’re combining two rooms that were once “separate” doesn’t mean you can keep them completely design-independent of each other. The best designers will tell you to pick a few cohesive elements and integrate them in all spaces now connected by your open floor plan. For example, similar colored trimmings or accent colors throughout will create a connected aesthetic and prevent rooms from competing with each other.
A golden glow almost emanates from this luxury formal dining room design. The wooden dining table, upholstered brown dining chairs, and the arranged golden tabletop décor match the area rug, wood plank flooring, beige walls, and golden tray ceiling. The hanging chandelier tops it all off with its warm lighting. Visit our gallery featuring dining room lighting ideas to see a variety of light fixtures and styles.
This living room is adorned by beautifully varnished wooden furniture, stylish glass and metal mantle pieces, a beautiful glass chandelier, and a classic geometric pattern area rug. Its polished hardwood floor matches the white walls and wainscoting and the tray ceiling above. The traditional aesthetic and the well-placed fireplace makes this room extremely homey and welcoming.
Hello my friends! I’m excited to finally reveal our dining room remodel before and after photos! This was the first and largest project we tackled when we moved into our new home last March and yet it somehow flew under the radar on the blog! Apparently I’ve been too busy to remember to share it with you! However, it is here now so let’s get to some dining room remodel before and after shots!
After all of the major elements of the project were complete it was up to me to put it all back together! We painted the pine boards white to mimic shiplap and brighten the space. My husband replaced the dated outdoor sconces with these modern farmhouse sconces. Finally, the rest of the project was all about decorating and making the space a functional family dining room.
Liven up your space by featuring pretty prints on rugs, window treatments, pillows nad more. Block print dhurrie rugs can command a pretty penny. To get the look for less, use a pretty wall stencil to apply a pattern to a large piece of artist canvas or drop cloth with a foam stencil brush. For an 8' by 10' rug, you'll need about a quart of standard interior paint in a satin finish. Wash stencil every other use to keep paint from clumping and elaving unwanted marks on the rug. 
When the homeowners removed the structure's dropped ceilings and drywall, they discovered dramatic roof beams and charming beadboard. In the dining room, and throughout the residence, they sanded the pine floors and stained them a rich ebony. Here, they sit in midcentury Woodard chairs. A friend crafted the dining table out of wood salvaged from a bowling lane. The oversize light formerly illuminated a factory. The walls are painted High-Gloss White by Behr.
