This is our dining room as a 'pre-before'. We haven't even begun to overhaul our dining room yet. I am imagining in the future possibly a bay window in place of the two windows, or perhaps even french doors out to a flagstone patio. I can also visualize some built in shelves to show off my collection of white serving pieces.
Here is the dining room still as a "current before" (i.e. We've spruced it up a little bit to make me happy, but it obviously doesn't even hold a candle to what I want it to look like as an end result.) I loved the colorful chairs that I had in there, but since re-doing my living room which opens up to the dining room, I had to put them in my new kitchen. They majorly clashed with the fabrics and colors in there and they look like they belong in their new home around the kitchen table.
This photo was taken during our Christmas Party.
And also for my husbands Birthday Brunch last year:
The little sideboard comes in handy, but I can't wait to really have built ins that will hold all my serving pieces.

Well hopefully within the next year or so I can update with some fabulous new "After" shots. But for now, hope you enjoyed the tour!
