Dining Room "Reveal"

I feel kind of silly calling this a "reveal," since in actuality it's been done for awhile, but I have gotten a few emails about my dining room and I wanted to show a before and after.  Here is where we started - I had started to despise the dark color in this room, and the furniture, while pretty, was just really not my taste anymore (it was a hand-me-down set from my parents that they owned in the '80s).

Here is the after - much lighter and brighter!

 (I have NO idea why the wall outside this room looks aqua - it is not at all!  It is a very neutral beige-y color.)

 My grandmother's chandelier - LOVE it so much....

Simple window treatment - inexpensive sheers ordered online, hung with drapery clips and some hook things I found on clearance at Calico Corners.  I love the way these turned out.

Here it is at night, with candles lit.  So warm and calming.

I hesitate to share things like this because 1) I don't want anyone to think that I think my decorating is so spectacular, and 2) because I am never finished with any room, so there is never any "final" reveal - haha!  I just thought I'd share since a few people have asked to see more of this room. 

Thanks for looking!

WOW - amazing transformation!!! I love the lighter color! It's so funny - my living room was almost exactly that color and then I painted it and the lighter color is almost the same as your lighter color. No wonder I love it so much!!

I shared this on my TT&J FB page and linked to you :)
