Before/After Dining Room…

I wasn’t planning on a room reveal but since we had such a productive weekend, I figured what the hell…

This poor girl has had so many makeovers she’s unrecognizable from where she once started…

My triple pinch french pleat (these drapes were almost the death of me!!) using this tutorial…still need to be hemmed, trying to figure how much pooling I want…

This mirror was originally gold…painted black then Rub n’ Buff (ed) back to gold…

The lamps got a coat of white lacquer paint so they now match…the shades were trimmed out with orange twill ribbon…still need to add a little more color  to that side of the room…

Although I haven’t gotten my needlepoint art exactly the way I want,  I figured I’d hang them as is for now…

Lots of little things still to be done, but I think it’s a hell of a start…

That is one damn productive weekend! It is fabulous from top to bottom!! You need to make yourself a pin to wear around that says 'I made triple pinch french pleat drapes' cuz that is a serious accomplishment!!! And your slipcovers, and the lamps...I could go on and on. Three cheers to you girlfriend!!
