Onto the house though...the chairs came! I may or may not have hulked open the box before Nate got home (which was not easy as it was taller and wider than I am) I open them up...and SWOONED.
The petina totally rocks. It's uneven and grungy and just oozing in sex.
That's right. I said my chairs ooze sex. You can take it anyway you'd like. That's just what the chairs told me to say.
So after I hulked and set them up... I made the magic happen.
May I announce, the dining room.
And here is how it interacts with the other side of the room...
And there we have it! The yellows are the same (same gallon of paint and everything) With the light coming in through the big window makes it hard to photograph them correctly.
I have just a few things left to do, I need to add length to the big white curtains, make some pillows as well as potentially hang up more art. I think that'll happen in time. I am a little burned out on the space. However, as our first room makeover comes to a close, we feel a big sense of pride and renewed energy.
It's kind of funny how one second you're like "That's it! I'm too tired!" then you walk out of the room, come back in and suddenly it's like, "OKAY! WHAT NOW?!"
I think the best thing is how many projects of this we did on our own. For first time clickers, here is the total list of things we did.
-Refinished a Fraternity House table (there's a million posts as it almost killed me, so we'll call it this one for funsies...)
-Demolished and reworked the bookshelves. (1, 2)
-Added a pallet focal wall behind the swivel TV mount we installed.
-Created pallet wall art for the dining room
-Upcycled a chandelier
And probably a jillion other things that I probably can't think of. Not to mention how much money we saved by doing it all ourselves...
What do you guys think?
