A shabby farmhouse dining room makeover

 Welcome  home! Been spending alot of time breathing in Spring, planting, painting, cleaning and even wallpapering. Speaking of wallpaper I am so happy to see it going back up on walls! If you ask me it makes a finishing touch statement to any room. And so many options and so many manufacturer's.  You can spend as little or as much as you will.  

So my dining room does not have a window and that is a minus for me but the open floor plan with the living room that has 2 large windows sheds a bit of light. So I wanted to bring some fun and bright colors to the room that is often full of family dinners, birthday celebrations and holiday meals. 

I have put together a list of what I have done to the room to take it out of dull. 

Painted the walls a grannysmith Green

Papered the backsplash a vintage brick leftover from the kitchen backsplash. 

Papered the countertop

Painted the table and chair tops a vintage green

Added some fun decor including a cow art print that I purchased through a Walmart vendor for about 10$

The large mirror and vintage wooden seat/garden bench was given to me by our very wonderful neighbor.

Welcome! Please come on in ....right through the doors

The potterybarn copper tray was a thriftstore find for about 4$ I shined it up and removed some of the tarnish using some lemon slices and salt

The paper on the counter was just too dark so I gave it a whitewash and a coat of water-based poly
This rooster is also a thrift find
Lucky I had a glass frame for this little guy

Mirrors can give a room an instant feeling of space

This very old bench is built like a solid shi* house as my gram would say. There is an opening on the top for easy handling place for all the garden tools and a seat as well!

I just painted a worn lick of paint to be cohesive with the table.

Thankyou so  much for stopping in!

                                         Happy decorating!
