Dining Room 2.0

March 4, 2013

Happy Monday! How was your weekend? Mine was jam-packed with projects I can't wait to share with you!

Today's project involves our dining room. I showed you a sneak peek of the changes last Friday:

And am back today to show you the rest of the room today:

I LOVE it! Absolutely love it :)

You saw the frame we built for our crystal print on Friday:

We installed the IKEA Maskros pendant on Friday night along with switching out the Ikat rug:

For the Nate Berkus one that was in our living room:

The pendant casts the coolest shadows on the walls and ceiling at night :)

Dare I say this room is done?! I think so! For this week at least ;)

The room has come a long way since we moved in but I'm 100% happy with it now!

Here's what it looked like back in January:

It's a little more neutral and a lot less "cheerful" than before but I really think that's "me." Well, maybe not me per se but my style of room.

It was hard to pinpoint but something about the previous rug/mirror combo kind of threw me off. As soon as we switched out the mirror for the print, I knew we were onto something and then when Nate was thrown into the mix? I put a fork in the room :)

What do you think of the changes?

  1. I love it!! The pendant is slap yo' grandama, awesome! And I ♥ your Nate rug! I say put a fork in it!!

  2. Love, love, love it too, but I think I mentioned several time how much I love the Maskros and I think you can't go wrong with it. I like the dining room better with this combo too.

  3. Ooo, very nice. I really love the framed print! I still love your old rug but I get the whole "love it but not my style" thing. The new rug is VERY pretty!

  4. It looks SO GOOD! That light is fantastic!

  5. Thanks Geesha! I forgot to mention that we still need drapes for the room but that's one of those finishing touches that can wait a little while :)

    Thanks Julia! I like it too and am so happy I went with the Maskros!

    Thanks Michelle and Amy! :)

  6. Love the changes...and that Nate rug is soooo swoon-worthy!

  7. Thanks Gabbi! The 8 x 10 version of that rug is on clearance for $143 and the 5 x 8 version is on clearance for $45! If you like it, but it now before it's too late!

  8. Love the new rug and lighting fixture! I wish I could pull off the Maskros in our house-- it's just so cool and fun.

  9. Thanks Chelsea! I'm sure you know this already but IKEA sells a smaller version of the Maskros that you might be able to pull off! I think it's only 19" whereas my big guy is 32" :)

  10. I love your dining room. So much! And that rug is such a good deal right now, I want to buy one but I can't imagine a room it works in. Boo. :(

  11. Oh no! There's also has a blue/green version and a black version of the rug. They might work better in a room than the gold!

  12. The before looked like most people's "after," so it'd be hard to go wrong, but that ginormous pendant totally made my heart skip a beat. LOVE it in that room!
