Dining Room

Back to Operation Dining Room.  I definitely got side tracked with the living room.  While waiting the 4 days it took to get the drapes back from the seamstress we jumped into the living room.  So then the poor drapes sat on our dining room table for a month.

Finally, they're up.  I bought four 96" Woodland drapery panels from West Elm and had them hemmed to 91" so that I could hang them floor to ceiling and fill the side walls with fabric.  

The before (crazy color combination with sparkles, awful floors, silly light fixture)

The during (dark and stuffy):

Done!  I like that the drapes hung higher and wider on a beefier rod (snicker snicker) makes the room feel bigger and fresher.

Pretty, fluid pattern.

Next up is to reupholster the dining room chairs with a fresher fabric but I'm thinking I shouldn't bother until the boys are older.  Who am I kidding, boys will always be walking messes :)
