One Room Challenge: Dining Room Final Reveal

Full Disclaimer: Thank you to Destination Lighting, Minted, and VivaTerra for providing products for this post. As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own. Thank you for supporting brands that support Cornflake Dreams.

It's the final week of the One Room Challenge! I'm so excited to finally share photos of our finished dining room! It's one of my favorite rooms in the house. Here's a quick reminder of what the room looked like before:
I knew right away that I wanted to remove the carpeting, columns (why?!!), crystal light chandelier, and install new hardwood floors and paint the room. I shared more information about the paint color I chose and our dark hardwood floors in this post.

And now for the "AFTER" photos:
Adding the Capri Waves Print in a Brushed Silver Frame from Minted added so much personality to the room. I love it and I'm glad we went with something abstract.
 I found the prettiest watercolor Navy Grid Napkins on Instagram (Yao Cheng has so many beautiful things in her shop and everything is made in the USA! I was such a fan of the Grid Napkins I also bought a set of Honey Berry Napkins to put on our side table. And now I have my eye on this tea towel.) Anyways I kept the table setting simple with our white dinner plates, navy placemats over Chilewich Silver Placemats. And a Hurricane Vase with a  Pillar Candle as the table centerpiece. 
Our Silver Delta ChairsGray Cushions and Shayne Drop-Leaf Table fit perfectly in the room with the Oversized Pendant Drum Light I blogged about in week four.
I managed to sneak in two Paris prints in my favorite Brushed Silver 5x7 Frames on the wall we normally store Violet's highchair.
Cookbooks: Charleston Receipts RepeatsLove and Lemons + Cravings 

I needed something to balance out the dining room table and the rest of the room so I was really excited to find the perfect buffet/side table on Destination Lighting. I was tempted to go full on blogger and use it as a bar cart, but my husband and I don't really drink so it'd be the saddest bar cart ever. I decided to use it to display some of my favorite things. I bought a lemon post card in Paris on our honeymoon (almost five years ago!) so I'm happy I finally got it in a frame. The larger lemon print was a wedding gift. I love my new Balloon Vase from VivaTerra -- the vase one-of-a-kind and made out of eco-friendly recycled glass. It's the perfect vase for faux blossom stems. (I initially filled it with silver dollar eucalyptus stems from Trader Joe's but after a day they looked rough!)
I'm so happy with how our dining room turned out and I had so much fun participating in the One Room Challenge! See other makeovers HERE!

  15. Wow, what a transformation! Now about that white table, do the legs get in the way of searching? I found one on C&B I like, but this PB price right now is better!

    1. Oops, not searching...sitting? Do they get in the way of the chair/sitting space?

    2. Thanks Bri! The table is an oval so two of the sides are a little closer to the center of the table than the others. My husband is taller than me so he sits on the roomier side -- I don't have an issue with my leg space even though I'm closer to the center of the table. I hope that helps!
