About This Space

Yay, my dining room was picked by HGTV for their "Dining Rooms on a Budget: Our 10 Favorites From Rate My
Space if the link doesn't work, it should work if you copy and paste it into the browser.
But since my post I have been working on changing the room a little, off course still on a budget. The paint changed from beige to grey, a new indoor/outdoor rug from Home Decorators, spray painted the urn white and some new DIY curtains with hardware from West Elm.

I have been seriously obsessed with horizontal striped curtains and after doing some research I decided to paint them.

love them and might make some more for my living room.

I bought the all-glass table at an estate auction for $25. The 1940s oil painting and the buffet mirror are also from different auctions each for $60. I would love to have button tufted chairs but I have 2 small children and 4 cats - so wicker it is for now, because it is super durable, I'm considering spray painting them one day.
I put up the crown molding myself.
I bought the light fixture in Germany. It is a replica of a designer chandelier which you can purchase at for about $2000 and zgallery is selling a replica for about $350. I purchased mine for about $80.
