So here's the before shots-
Look at all that rusty orange. And that countertop has a lovely tinge of orange to it too-it's much worse than the picture suggests.
I DIY'ed these countertops (more on that to come)-
gave the cupboards a fresh coat of paint & hardware-
and experimented with stripes, creating a focal wall that can be seen from the hallway and dining room. It's possibly my favourite part.
The rest of the walls were painted a beautiful gray called Stone Harbor by Benjamin Moore.
Light fixtures need to go up as do two mirrors (painted white)-one of which I found at a garage sale last weekend! Can't wait to show that puppy off.
Also, waiting in the wings for a few updates is the dining room. I'm thinking of re-covering the chairs, sewing a runner for the table and I've got a few ideas up my sleeve for a centerpiece section for the table. That being said, this is it's current condition.
Yep. So, dining room's on the back burner for now.
Stay tuned for more progress!
