Dining Room Reveal

We moved into our new house in mid-January and we have been getting settled in ever since. The new house has a dining room in addition to the eat in kitchen. That left a new room to decorate and fill with furniture. Instead of buying a full dining set, we ended up buying the table and chairs separately.

We bought the table off of Craigslist....this is the "before" picture...from the ad on Craigslist. I am going to put a protective coat on it soon but I have left it alone other than that!

We bought 6 chairs at a local consignment shop called SUR Furniture. They have great pieces! Here are the chairs before...

We brought in the new furniture, and a china hutch given to us by the hubby's grandparents. This is what we had at this point.

We wanted to brighten the room up a we decided to paint the chairs and pie safe white and to recover the seats in a neutral gray. I bought gray fabric at the Raleigh Flea Market to recover the seats. I bought white milk paint at SUR Furniture.

Here is the finished dining room from a few different angles!

This room is quickly becoming a favorite! I can't wait to show you the rest of the house!


  1. Love this Katie!! Please come decorate my house!

  2. So lovely! I'll be right over for dinner! ;)

  3. Love this. The contrasts in color are great!!

  4. Love the table and chairs! What a transformation! Can't wait for the rest of the pics of the new house:)

  5. A lovely house and a homeowner with a thirst for good interior makes for a wonderful home! Your dining table looks lovely, and that mirror is to die for. Where did you get it? Hopefully, we'll get a peek of what you've done with the rest of the house soon, Katie. Thanks for sharing and all the best to you! :)
