Dining Room Make Over Reveal

Pin It
BEFORE
We've lived in our home for ten years. When we built it, it was decorated in a very traditional, very formal, style. As my style has evolved and I've expanded my various collections, I decided that I wanted a more casual, more "farm girl french", style. I wasn't sure how I was going to accomplish this with just paint and a few accessories, but this is where I ended up.  They say that "a picture is worth a thousand words." With that said, I'll let the photos do the "talking".

One of my girlfriends saw it for the first time and said "Oh my gosh! It feels so much more like YOU!"  Thank you, Sadie. I take that as a compliment!
