I was going back through my blog and looking at the before and after pics, and realized a lot has changed since I did the inital “after” photo. I guess it proves Ryans point that nothing stays the same around here for long;) I hate that when he’s right!:) So, I thought I’d slowly update the blog pages and show you what we’ve “changed” around here!
Here is the photo I had on my before and after section on the blog..
That seems like ages ago! And almost everything has changed! Here is the current after…
I got a new dining table awhile back that I haven’t shared yet. Although I liked the makeover I gave to the dining table Ryan and I purchased when we were first married almost 10 years ago, I had my eye on this swoon worthy table for the last few years….ever since I used it in the cabin I made over. My friend ended up buying it for their house, used it for a year, and realized it wasn’t what she was looking for. I knew I’d never convince the hubby to buy a brand new table since there was nothing wrong with ours, but when the opportunity came to buy it from my friend, for almost half price, he was game. Add in the equation that I sold ours at Whimsy, and it was almost a wash. Score!
This dining table is from World Market and is called the Rustic Java Greyson Fixed Dining Table. I have never been disappointed with World Market quality and this table does NOT dissapoint! It is super heavy (trust me…I know:) and looks amazing in person..
The price (even full price) is quite amazing for the quality if you ask me! And the beautiful thing about this table is that it is 8″ narrower than our old table and a foot longer, so it fits the space better and makes the room look bigger:)
And my most recent purchase was a new rug for this room. If you look at the before picture you can tell my 8 year old ikea jute rug was falling apart. I found this one on RUGSUSA and fell in love. I got the 7’6″x9’6″ size and the fit is perfect.
It’s super chunky and quite soft actually. I was nervous about it being too busy, but I love how it warmed it up and added so much texture.
and here’s another before of changes..
Creating a space you love takes time..
but is oh so worth it:)
I finally feel like one room in my house is complete. For now:)
