Before: (I keep asking myself what was I thinking? with all the dark colors!)
The table is a craigslist find that is exactly what I wanted! (The chair is from our former kitchen table that we had when we rented.)
Be watching for a little tutorial on the quick & easy way I hung these plates!
These Ralph Lauren pillows were a bit of a splurge but I used hard earned cash I made from 2nd shooting a wedding! ;) To me, it was worth it. I looooooove them and if I would have gotten cheap pillows, it would have looked chincy. I wanted good, feather pillows and these are nice and durable which is important for this space since people will be sitting against/on them!
My hubby did such a great job on building the banquette!! I will show more details later but they open up and have storage inside (which I desperately need!) I made the cushions. They aren't perfect but they will do!
Just for fun, a few more after pics (of the. same. thing.)
I'm not really thrilled with how our chandelier looks in the space now, but I will leave it for now. Maybe I will find a great deal on one sometime in the future.
I LOVE it! The space is so much brighter and more casual.
p.s. I am linking up!
