Another project is finished in the dining room and that means I’m one step closer to a finished dining room…finally!
My grandpa gave this to my grandma for her birthday way back when so it has some meaning to the family. There was already enough dark wood in this room though so I used paint, new knobs and scrapbooking paper to update this piece of furniture to fit our house.
I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint for the first time ever and even though I feel like a DIY failure, my review for this paint is this – “Eh.” I’m not in love, over the moon with it as everyone else. It worked well and didn’t have an odor like most paints so there was a plus but it was just like most other paints I’ve used. Not really worth the expense of the paint!
The knobs are from Hobby Lobby and at the bottom of the two sections, I used navy and white scrapbooking paper to give some color and pattern to this piece. It feels so much more modern now.
Here is another look at the before and after. The added molding to the walls and the lighter color also help make this spot look much better. There are two lights inside the cabinet so at night it makes the dining room look so pretty and gives a nice glow to the room – love!
