The dining room was also in desperate need of some help. The walls were also faux finished and the room was just dark and dingy. We knew we wanted molding of some sort and we ended up deciding on bead board, which we though would add a lot of cottage charm. We installed wallpaper on the top portion of the wall which gave the room the elegance it deserved as a dining room. Because we really dig the industrial farmhouse dining room look, we installed two industrial outdoor light fixtures on the wall that we purchased from Lowes. We also made a DIY chandelier like this one from west elm, but only for $10 by using an old lampshade and a lamp kit from Lowes. I purchased the buffet from an antique store and painted it a coral shade of red to coordinate with the couch that is in the adjoining living room and we made the shelves by staining pieces of wood from Lowes and attaching them to the wall with brackets from hobby lobby. Like our living room, all of the accessories are from a variety of discounted home stores including TJ Max, HomeGoods, Tuesday Morning, Target, and even Wal-Mart. We also found a lot of great things at resale and antique shops.

This room was definitely the most challenging room of the house and where we took on the most projects. Our goal was to create a light and airy space that was welcoming and inviting to people. our ceilings are pretty low so we wanted to make them feel taller by keeping the room relatively neutral. We installed bead board 60 inches high and put up wallpaper with some guidance from my wonderful mother-in-law. Griffin’s pretty sure that he can hang wallpaper for a living now.
Now for the lighting…because I am really digging the industrial farmhouse look, we installed two industrial style sconces on the wall. We also made a DIY chandelier like this one from west elm, but only for $10 by using an old lampshade and a lamp kit from Lowes.
the buffet table was another DIY project we took on. when we purchased it, it looked like this.

We had intended on painting it white, but when we decided to put up white bead board I decided that would be too boring white. when we went to look at paint colors, I saw a can in the oops section that matched our sofa exactly. as soon as i saw that pretty coral color I knew we had to get it. I love the way it turned out.

I made some shelves for the wall by getting three pieces of pine wood from Lowes at $10 a pop and some wood stain. I found the metal brackets at hobby lobby for 50% off, and paid $2.50 a piece for them. quite the savings compared to the ones at Lowes. All of the accessories on the shelves I already had. also, we did painter’s drop clothes for the window treatments again. Shocking I know. To see more about using painters drop clothes for window treatments, take a look here.

So without further adieu, here is the before…


and here are the afters…
