Adding Style to the Dining Room: Final Reveal!

If you have been following along since the beginning,  you know that my CSIL has been DIY-ing her way to a dining room with sass and style.

Remember what it looked like when she bought the house?
(Wide angle lenses really make a room look large, this is actually a very compact space!)


Therese did a couple of updates soon after moving in by adding the light fixture and making the 
built-ins more functional with the panel coverings, 
but the space lacked the kind of style that reflects who she truly is.

But no more!!!! 

A Craigslist dining set and some lively Duralee fabrics got the ball rolling and now the room is an eclectic and inviting space that reflects Therese's style and personality.

after the initial fix up...



And now! 


My CSIL completed this project in record time. We joke that the reason we get along and work so well together is because I am the idea person and she is the do-er. While I am still thinking through how something will come together, she is already on it.

Like the Craigslist chairs, which she re-did to perfection....


And the gorgeous reupholstery job she did on the World Market host chairs:


 Then there are the cornice board window treatments...



And the accessorizing...



Did I mention that she painted the room twice?



The pale pink wasn't doing it for her...


As usual for us, this was an amazing collaboration, all done long distance by combining my vision and her incredible talents with results that exceed expectation! 


Great job Therese, when is the party???
