Before and After Of A Lounge & Dining Room
–Submitted By A Sense Of Design
The sandstone on the fireplace had smoke stains (as did the wall above it). I scrubbed both with sugar soap and then used a sealer with a stain block to make sure the stain didn’t bleed though the paint. I had decided to paint the fireplace to give a bit more life…it is not style I would have chosen but for now it will do!
Same view of the room, much easier on the eye. I made plain cream curtains (I wanted linen but the cost ruled that out – maybe later) and put in new metal rods, replacing the dated pelmet boxes.
You can just see the new french doors on the right hand of this picture. There was no easy access to the deck outside so I had the window replaced with the doors…it was one of the best things I have done.
My new cushions from Etsy shop Milk and Cookies.
A sitting area near the french doors, with my Buddah painting behind. My room has a slight Asian influence. I like the combination of classic and Asian styling. With our proximity to Asia it seems to be a natural choice.
I love this transformation! The mouldings are fantastic! Great job!!
Love it! I love your dining room table! It is exactly what I am looking for! Is it antique and you probably redid it!
You brought wonderful life and style back into the home!
