Dining Room Makeover Reveal

FINALLY! I have a room reveal! This month, will be our two year anniversary in this house and I have yet to do a room reveal.  I’ve shared our cement floors and our mantel makeover and a few painted rooms here and there, but today I’m really excited to share my dining room makeover reveal. 

Here it is when we first moved in. Nice right?


And drumroll please…

Here it is AFTER!

It’s a little more modern with the cement floors and six inch trim.  We also went with a dark gray accent wall. Here’s the other side.


My husband and I went architectural salvage shopping and bought an old metal workbench with wheels for our table and we put glass on top. Please feel free to ignore the child safety bumpers on the corners. To balance the hardness of the metal, we added tufted upholstered chairs with a floral pattern. I was going for an industrial chic type of feel.

On top of the table as a centerpiece, I have a cake stand that my friend Loren from Pandora’s Craft Box made.  I put some antique books, burlap hydrangeas and a little ceramic quail I bought at Goodwill inside.


This is the view from out front door. We painted the column a bright white and added molding to the bottom to match the trim.

I also added a bar area for entertaining.

On the wall next to the dining room table I added some shelves and a fun folding table I bought at Home Goods. It’s a great area for extras when entertaining. I used it as a salad bar once!

That’s it! I hope you like it! It’s a very eclectic style that fits both my husband and my personalities. We love it and enjoy using and looking at it every day!

  1. So gorgeous!!! Saw this on google plus from Kelly Elko. I hope you don’t mind if I share on my FB page today. Love the cement floors. We have done this in my office and I love it! What a very cool dining room. Thank you for sharing. -Karen

  2. I am amazed by the transformation. Your work is phenomenal! It looks like something you would see on an HGTV show. The biggest thing I suggest to my clients is having fun with your spaces and use elements from your favorite sites, magazines and DIY websites for ideas.

    If you are thinking of reselling your home in the near future (12 – 18 months), then I usually suggest involving a real estate agent by asking for a walk through inspection. They have lots of ideas based on the return on investment for your market and know what will “pop” or not.

    Simply amazing work. I love your blog.

  3. Awesome job! Where did you get the dining chairs? I’ve been searching for almost a year now and haven’t found a chair like that…which is what I have wanted!
