This lovely dining room makeover has made the blog rounds a bit — you may have seen it on Poppytalk last week — but it was too beautiful a transformation not to share. Abbey and her husband purchased this 1800s farmhouse in upstate NY a mere four weeks ago, and already they are hard at work turning it into a cozy, vintage-style space with tons of light and character. I love the copper details, including the vintage light fixture she found for $7 (!) and the circle of stamped pennies on the wall. If this is what Abbey can accomplish in just four weeks, I can’t wait to see how the rest of the house turns out! Great job, Abbey!
Today’s before & after comes from Sherry Quam Taylor. Her home was built in 1903 and after demolishing and gutting the entire first floor, she and her husband felt like they finally had a space that felt like their own. In addition to new Tudor archways and crown moulding, Sherry and her husband made over their dining room from top to bottom, including new wallpaper from Osbourne & Little, dark chocolate floors and important family mementos like a vintage mirror that belonged to Sherry’s grandparents. I love the way they updated this space and am so thrilled she shared it with us today. Thanks, Sherry!
We’ve all been there. Faced with a room that desperately needs an update, but a wallet that desperately needs a fill-up. Redesigning a room doesn’t come cheap, especially when factoring in all-new furniture and fixtures. Oftentimes, one might find themselves ogling over home goods in shop catalogues, but opting to wait a little longer on the renovation because of their ultimate price tag. When Felicia Brickey of Little Brick Home encountered this issue with her kitchen, however, she was undeterred. Instead of handing over an arm and a leg for big-bucks designer furnishings, she opted to get the same look through the DIY route, furnishing the room with a mixture of self-made creations and budget finds. The results, achieved for a little shy of $400, are even better than the pricy alternative. The space went from drab and ordinary to elegant and charming. Check out all of the pictures plus links to the DIYs and product sources after the jump!
