The Dining Room Transformation

Dogwood house dining room in aqua

The dining room is my favorite room in the house. It is bright and airy with two windows that face north west, so it gets the lovely evening sun.

S. and I have put a lot of work into transforming this space. We painted the top half of the walls interesting aqua from Sherwin Williams and added faux wainscoting to the bottom half. You can read our post about how to do this DIY here. S. also put up an elaborate crown molding that he designed and installed himself -- that DIY post is here. The moldings help create architectural drama and interest, making the space feel formal.

With our small budget and my love of vintage and antique furnishings, everything in this room is also by and large thrifted or sourced from auctions and estate sales. The curtains are a gorgeous silk dupioni in an aqua, cream, and white plaid that I found thrifting. They were not the right size, so my lovely mother-in-law cut them down to fit our windows.

The mahogany Federal style table is an auction find from R.H. Lee Auctioneers out of S.C., and the white cane chairs I found at our local Karm store. The rattan bar cart is from Target, and I painted it a chic navy blue -- tutorial here.
