The dining room isn’t finished yet, but it has come a long way since redoing our floors a few months ago. The new rug I ordered was delivered yesterday and it’s so much less depressing than the red one (see below). The big pieces are in place, but there’s a lot of styling left to do. As promised, here are a couple premature before and after photos.
I switched out our old Ikea chairs with the lucite ones to make the room look bigger, painted the mirror, brought in a bar cart I found on Craigslist and replaced the rug. It’s almost pretty enough to start eating in.
