A Quick Look Back
Remember this? This was our dining room before the ORC began. I was over the blue accent wall, mismatched curtains, and farmhouse light fixture and couldn’t wait to get started!
Updated Mood Board
You may see my original mood board HERE. As the weeks progressed, my vision evolved. Most notably, I decided not to hang oversized artwork in the center of the wall. With the board and batten accent wall and chandelier, I felt that it would look too busy. Instead, I decided on two smaller pieces of art stacked on the left side to balance the window. I also changed the chairs from my original plan and think these ones are even prettier and more practical for our family.
Coastal Dining Room Reveal!
And without further ado, here are my reveal photos!
Swapping out the light fixture in this space made such a difference! This beauty is the Tabitha Chandelier by Mitzi. I love the brass finish and fluted glass shades; it is both modern and classic, and makes a statement while remaining light and airy. It is the jewelry of our dining room and I cannot stop looking at it!
Replacing these bins and restyling our cube organizer made such a difference! See my Pretty Toy Storage update for details and lots of great finds for playroom organization.
Perhaps the biggest change in this space was the addition of our Board and Batten Accent Wall. Check out that post for my inspiration, plans, and the pretty beige paint color that adds subtle contrast here. The Aged Stone Vase is actually an inexpensive vase that I spray painted and “weathered” to make it look vintage!
These two beautiful frames are from Frame It Easy. They are the Granby Frame in gold, and the Derby Frame in wheat. Apart from offering beautiful frames, Frame It Easy allows you to upload digital artwork for printing, which is what I did! You may find the artwork I used HERE and HERE.
Before & Afters
Here are a few side by side comparisons so you can see how far we have come:
Our coastal dining room makeover turned out even better than I imagined! I do not think any room in our home will ever be one hundred percent complete, but this space now evokes the casual, coastal style that I love and brings me joy.
