Finalllly – after two weeks of staring at a stick note on my fridge that says ‘post the dining room before pics’, I have sat down to do it! Life has a way of getting crazy at the MOST inopportune moments, doesn’t it?!?
Below is the realtor picture that I first fell in love with! I know what you’re probably wondering that the heck I was thinking, but I loved the window trim, the original hardwoods and the abundance of light in this sweet little room.
Here are some quick snapshots I shot on my iPhone when I came to see the house for the first time:
Below you can see the color of the floors before they were refinished. Under the dining table was pretty damaged.
The patching and painting process:
These chairs I purchased secondhand from a friend of my mothers. I will post the after pics of them along with the rest of the dining room. Mmmmm 90’s plastic fruit, now we’re talkin’! All jokes aside, I still love this classic frame of these chairs. Rather than refinishing to a crisp white, as I originally intended, I ended up just cleaning them and touching up the paint because I decided I liked the warmth and wear of the cream.
I will link the after pics here when I post them!
with grace & salt, kirsten
