Beautiful Friends, I am so excited to be able to declare another room done!!
Remember what our dining room looked like in my Hot Mess Tour I shared when we first moved in?
And remember how my hubby thought the water cooler was going to get to stay there?
Well not only is the room done, but I repainted my entire dining set, and decorated the room for Christmas!
Welcome to my Christmas dining room!
I ‘ve included a few affiliate links so you can find the products I use.
Pay no attention to the uneven garland on the hutch. 😉
This space got new paint and new floors! The paint is Behr’s Campfire Ash and the floors are engineered hardwood made by Style Selections from Lowes. I believe this color is Barrel Hickory.
I ordered a new rug for the dining room on Black Friday that is a bit bigger. This one will move to my office.
And looky here…no water cooler. 🙂
My DIY chalk paint works great in it. I do make a fresh batch to put in the sprayer since it is a bit thinner when it is first made.
The sprayer made this task so much easier! After sanding and waxing, I recovered the chair pads just like I did the first time. (See that HERE.) Then to help protect them I sprayed them with Scotchgard…
And wouldn’t you know, just like the first time I did this a few years ago, a bird came along and shackydoodled on my brand new chair pad! I took a picture for you…
Your day is now complete. You’re welcome.
They did turn out pretty though:
See how easy it is to add piping to your chairs HERE.
I just lightly sanded the chairs this time so that yellowy color underneath didn’t show too much:
I painted the base of the table as well.
I painted this basket in the Spring and filled it with pink Roses. (See that HERE.) It worked well to hold this greenery that I found at Pier One after Christmas several years ago:
The furry runner is new this year. I found that at HomeGoods.
My hutch just has garland up top and a few sprays of greenery…
These little cuties were a gift from my Sister last year and look right at home with all my white dishes:
I added beaded garland to the greenery up top for a little fun…
And to match my tree!
This was my Mom’s tree. She decided to get a smaller one this year and offered this to me. I snatched it right up!
We have a real tree in our living room that holds all of our family ornaments, so this one can stay pretty! Most of the decorations are from my old tree that I used to have in our bedroom. I picked the ornaments up for 25¢ a piece after Christmas one year so I grabbed a bunch of them. I added the beaded garland and a box of gold balls from Target this year.
How do you like my tree skirt?
I borrowed my fur throw from the little sofa in my office. It works great! It is actually a faux sheepskin rug that I picked up at HomeGoods a couple of months back. I threw it on that small sofa to sweep one day and I loved it there so it stayed.
I also found these red poinsettias at Walmart. I love the pops of red and these are really pretty close up…
You can’t see up the stairwell, but it has also been painted. Remember I was deciding how I should go about getting that finished? I ended up hiring it out. A guy came over to give me a quote, and I was only asking for the stairwell to the top of the stairs. He threw in the upstairs hall for free so I went for it. He and his crew did a great job, and I am so happy it is finally done!
I also picked these lanterns up at HomeGoods this year…
I’ll be able to use them after the holidays.
I hope you enjoyed my dining room set makeover/room reveal/Christmas dining room!
