Modern Dining Room Makeover

I’d like to thank At Home for sponsoring this makeover. As always, opinions are all mine! LOVE this dining room makeover! The details are simple but perfect - and inexpensive!Hey hey! I could not be more excited to share this makeover with you guys today. I’ve wanted to do a dining room makeover for EVER but it wasn’t at the top of my priority list (master bathroom!) so it was just hanging out with absolutely no personality. Well, no more! I have been working on making all the rooms in my house feel like they are ‘my style’ and look nice, without spending a lot of money, and this one is finally fitting in!

I knew I wanted to change out the light fixture first and foremost, but I had a small budget for this space. Luckily, I found a really perfect drum lamp shade at At Home and I knew it was time. The lamp shade cost $25 and I got a pendant light kit at the hardware store for $30. It was so easy for my husband to install, he did it in about 20 minutes on his lunch break!

I also have been looking for the perfect rug for this space for about 2 years. Everything I’ve tried has either not been the right color, or not been ‘toddler-proof.’ Yeah… rugs under where kids eat? This is complicated! I ended up giving myself these parameters:

  1. Be braided or tightly woven.
  2. Have a busy pattern so stains won’t stand out.
  3. Not too dark, my table is dark gray & I don’t want the room to feel moody, but not too light, because, food.
  4. Not too expensive – I wanted to keep it under $150.

After searching high and low and trying multiple and then just taking them back, I found this one at At Home and for a 5×8 it was only $50! Not to mention, it’s my signature color!!! I have to say, I feel like I hit the jackpot with this one. I’m loving the added brightness to the room, and it’s very good quality.

As you may have noticed from other makeovers, I LOVE mid-century modern style and this starburst wall decor is my FAVE. I actually bought two of these because I loved it so much and couldn’t decide where to put just one. I love the playfulness it adds to the room while still feeling grown-up.

I also picked up some smaller table accessories because I have always wanted to have kind of a go-to table scape that I can use all year-round.LOVE this dining room makeover! The details are simple but perfect - and inexpensive!

I am always and forever going to love white dishes. I found some simple silver chargers at At Home, and some pink napkins and amazing geometric vases, and it all came together. Everything was so inexpensive, and it really feels high-end up in here. Simple and sophisticated, for the win!

I’m so happy to finally have this put together! I want to add some window treatments next… the blinds alone are not doing it for me. But one thing at a time, right!?
