These past six weeks flew by at lightning speed, and it feels great to be at the finish line of the Spring 2016 One Room Challenge! Thank you so much to Linda at Calling It Home for spearheading this semi-annual design blogger event.
Six weeks ago, I set out to spice up our dining area, a "room" that is centrally located between our kitchen and family room. What I thought would be an easy and straightforward makeover posed quite a few challenges at nearly every turn. It felt like the One Room Challenges at times! :)
I'll dig into the design details later. Today's post will be all about one thing - the room transformation in photos! So come on in and take a look...
It was a dark and dated time capsule, just like the adjacent old kitchen which we also renovated. Our dining room (and home in general) has come such a long way over the past three years since we purchased our fixer upper!
The feature wall literally transformed how the room looks AND feels! It was the main component of the design plan, and it truly is the "star" of the room! The bold graphic wallpaper added the design "oomph" I had envisioned, and the wainscoting detail provided much-needed architectural dimension. I am so pleased with how it turned out, especially after all the challenges we faced having an uneven wall! It single-handedly elevated the room's design, and it also gave the dining area its own "identity" within the open concept great room.
Thank you all so much for following along with our dining room makeover! Your positive support and encouragement here on the blog and on Instagram has been truly appreciated. That's a wrap on the Spring 2016 One Room Challenge!!!
