Dining Room - Before & After

This is my dining room before I had any furniture in it. It is really boring and not very interesting.

This is what my dining room looks like now. It is still a work in progress, but furniture is better than no furniture.

Notice the great chairs. They used to look like this. But I didn't like the color...

So, I convinced my Mom and Reuben to help me sand them all down (Dad helped too). Here they are in action. Don't you just love all of the dust particles in the air?

I had to leave for Georgia before they were finished so Mom and Andrea spent the next week finishing them for me. They look beautiful!!! Thanks Mom & Andrea!

Andrea and my Mom spent so much time on them and I love the chairs that much more. They help remind me daily of how much I am loved. I think everyone should have a physical reminder that they are loved in their home, especially when they are thousands of miles from home.

Now I just have to recover the seats and they will be perfect! Any suggestions on what color/design I should use for the seats?

Love the color! What other colors are you going to have in the room. That is what usually helps me pick out fabric. Good luck!
