Spring 2016 One Room Challenge Dining Room Makeover {Week Five: Final Peek}

We are in the home stretch of the Spring 2016 One Room Challenge.  Time is ticking to next week's room reveal!!!

CAD INTERIORS dining room makeover one room challenge ceiling light fixture lighting

My seemingly "jack-of-all-trades" hubby installed and wired a new electrical junction box to get the new light fixture centered above the table.  He even maneuvered his way through the crawl space, adding a reinforcement bracket to ensure the fixture would hold!  His DIY skills have really expanded with all the home improvement projects in our beloved fixer upper! :)

CAD INTERIORS dining room makeover one room challenge flooring area rug natural fiber

Because of my indecisiveness, I ordered the rug last minute - as in Monday.  Now I'm holding my breath that it arrives in time for photographs.  I had my eye on some Persian/Turkish rugs, but my practical nature kept going back to natural fiber?!  Since this is a dining room, the durability (and price point) of a natural jute rug won out at least for now.  I do love the texture it provides, and with two growing boys, I won't be concerned if something spills.  BUT I made sure to get one that was jazzed up a bit! :) #loveanimalprints

Lastly, I would really like to thank YOU for following along with this makeover.  I truly appreciate the time you spend here, and I've loved hearing your feedback along the way.  Your comments have been so encouraging and supportive.  This week started off extra special.  I found out that the DIY project that gave us a run for our time was featured on the House Beautiful website!  We have had a few hiccups in our dining room makeover, so the recognition was a nice surprise in this One Room Challenge experience. :)
