Dining Room Rehab: Before and After

So I know you are dying to see the after pictures of the dining room, and I am so excited to show you them. I've tried to match as many of the angles of the before pictures to the after pictures as I could, so you could really see the transformation.

Before # 1, in which you can see how little we had to work with. :-)

After # 1. Ah, so much better.

Before # 2. To the left just a tad. Who can forget the tiled floor, and the cork walls in the living room? Oh, and that palm tree plant? I murdered it. It was hideous. :-)

After # 2.  Sooo much better.

Before # 3. Mini blinds are rocking the house!

After # 3. Light! Glorious light!

Before # 4. More blank walls. And a partial view of those shelves.

After # 4. Pictures. And paint. And no shelves. Hallelujah!

Before # 5. Many a noggin was cracked on that cabinet, let me tell you.

After # 5.  Ah. Serenity. My noggin is at peace.

And then just a few more afters, because they are just so stinking gorgeous. :-)

So what do you think? Was it worth all the blood, sweat and tears?  What is your favorite part? Is there something you just can't stand? I'd love to hear your thoughts and opinions, even if you don't like it. I'm a big girl! :-)

Wow! That's all I can say! I love it all. It's really a beautiful room, you've done beautifully

I think removing those cabs made the biggest difference. The painted wall, trimmed out opening and stenciling above really balances the window now. It looks wonderful and I like the display of photos you chose for the dining room wall.

Very good makeover. That room looks ready for quite a few dinner parties.

It looks amazing! I love the wall color and the floor! And that little desk just pops with that wall! It's gorgeous!

What a fabulous makeover this is. I'm left almost speechless. My favorite part is the removal of the cabinet and those nasty shelves. LOL. Now the window opening wall is perfect. The stenciling sets it off.

Your paint color is a beautiful choice with the crown molding!
