Dining Room - TA-DA!

Whew! Finally! It turned out great! The light fixture replaced a ceriling fan circa 1980 and it is beautiful. Best part is that Jamie's mom gave it to us so it was f~r~e~e! We also got new curtains and curtain rods.

Dining table, new light fixture, new curtains, and one plant i am desperately trying not to kill!

Side table (with phone and catch-all basket)

Another view of room .

I can't tell you how upset I am at myself for waiting so long to get it done. That door you see in the third picture has been unfinished since we moved in, almost 4 years ago! Sad really.

This make-over was totally budget friendly too!

Paint & supplies -$25.00
Light Fixture - $4.00 (for hardware to install it)
Window Treatments - $19.00
2 placemats - $5.00
Plant & Planter - $15.00

Total: $69.00 and a little bit of sweat equity!
