Dining Room Reveal!

Sharing is caring!

My dining room is done! What a project it was. It’s very simply decorated:  Shutters, curtains, table, and chairs.  My clock is actually in there too but I couldn’t fit it in the picture, it was kinda far away.

Isn’t is fun? It works well for little kids. NO carpet or rug under the table. I like the look of them but it is NOT practical with kids. Life is a million times easier with a wood floor in the dining room.  The chairs for the kids are wood and the chairs for me and Daddy are upholstered and soft.

I love this.  I was afraid of color last year and everything was white, black, and tan.  But this year my colors are green and aqua and it’s been so fun!  The challenge will be holiday decorating and making it work.  We’ll see, we’ll see…

I didn’t take a full BEFORE picture but here’s what it looked like…

I have lots of tutorials that go along with this post, although some have not been posted yet.  I’ll update this post once they are all up.

  1. I love how it turned out. The colors look so fun and I love the shutters.

  2. I *love* how the table and chairs turned out. I’m not usually a big fan of the distressed look I keep seeing on furniture everywhere, but your set looks so good. The ombre chairs were a total stroke of genius with their simple shapes. The table looks so much better white. Great job, Heidi!

  3. so fresh, fun and inviting! I agree, no rug under my kitchen table either. if i had one, there would probably be something growing on it:).

      Looking good yourself Michele! haha 🙂

  4. I’m seriously in love and SO inspired!! Thanks so much for the inspiration. I may just have to do this to my ugly dining chairs. SO perfect!

    I’ve pinned this!

    1. Heidi @ Honeybear Lane says:

      Thanks Emily! Great to inspire you. 🙂

  5. It’s all beautiful!! You did a wonderful job and the colors are great. There are lots of Christmas colors that will be beautiful!


    1. Heidi @ Honeybear Lane says:

      Thanks Pat! It’s Halloween that’s the real challenge…

  6. Are the shutters attached to anything? Are they functional in any way or simply decorative? I love this look.

    1. Heidi @ Honeybear Lane says:

      They are just leaning against the wall. I’ve toyed with the idea of putting hinges on them to keep them together but I like the fact that I can move them as I please. Thanks!

  7. LOVE IT. Those ombré chairs are perfection! And your painted table looks awesome white!

    1. Heidi @ Honeybear Lane says:

      Thanks Shelley!

  8. Looooove! Can you please come to my house and decorate it? Or at least invite me over for brunch? 😉

    1. Heidi @ Honeybear Lane says:

      Haha!! I’d love to! Come on over!

  9. I love.love.love your dining room and you have so inspired me! What pattern is the fabric on your chairs and where did you get it from?

    1. Heidi @ Honeybear Lane says:

      It’s the Verona main fabric by Riley Blake. Thanks!!

  10. I love your table makeover. I need to know the colors you used. This exact look is what I have had in my head for about a year now—going to make it happen soon . I found you through All Things Thrifty.

    1. Heidi @ Honeybear Lane says:

      Good luck! It’s a challenge! Thanks for stopping by!

    1. Heidi @ Honeybear Lane says:

      Glad you love it all! Thanks!

  11. Heidi, I love the table & color of the chairs, it’s beautiful! I also like the color of your dining room. Do you happen to remember what color you painted it? Thanks!

    1. Heidi @ Honeybear Lane says:

      I didn’t paint the walls actually! sorry!

    1. Heidi @ Honeybear Lane says:

      Thanks for visiting! I still love the colored chairs and they look good in any room, wherever they are.

  12. Your blog is just getting me today! Seriously, come decorate my house. For real … it needs some help. I spend all my time snapping photos of people and making art that when it comes to my own space, it’s a little bit of a wreck. You could say I’m that typical artist. I only think straight when my creative space is a mess, apparently.

    1. Heidi @ Honeybear Lane says:

      You are too sweet. Get those photos organized and you can make your decorating ideas come to life! 🙂 xoxo

  13. I love love love the pastel colored chairs…. Yo are so amazing!
    The white table….. Oh, I’m drooling again……

    hugs x

    1. Heidi @ Honeybear Lane says:

      Thank you!! You are so sweet 🙂

  14. I love it! Where did you find those shutters? And how tall are those! I want to make them for my own place!

    1. Heidi @ Honeybear Lane says:

      I got them at the Restore. Not sure how tall…they are probably 7 feet?

  15. That looks amazing! I love the colors you choose. I am in the process of painting my chairs!!
