My Plum & Sage Dining Room Makeover: Finished!

It's taken me a while to get a chance to write this follow-up post because this has been 
busy year for me! My work on my new jewelry instruction book is finished and the 
book is now in the design stages, so now that I am finished working on that, I can 
get back to blogging a little more often, Yay! 

Anyway, a while back I did a blog post about how I painted my dining room table and 
chairs black and recovered the seats with pretty new fabric in the colors that I had
 planned on redoing my entire dining room in: sage green and plum. The dining set was 
originally painted an ugly hunter green with burgundy seats - yuck - a look that 
screamed 1980's. I was thrilled with my newly redone table and chairs, but I still 
hadn't even painted the room! 

Well, it's finally finished! And aside from adding a few more things to the walls 
(that takes time!) I thought I would share with you my new look. I love this color combination because I think it compliments vintage style very well, but it still 
has a modern, contemporary look that is very stylish and current. The plum and 
sage are a hint Bohemian - maybe an unusual color choice for some, but its 
what I always wanted so I made it happen! Check it out!


This photo of the dining room was taken right when I purchased the house, 
before I even moved in...


My new look! I am in love with this color combination!

Here we have the awful green and behind it the sleek new black!

Here's a finished chair. Note the old wall color behind it. Yuck! 

My swanky new dining room! I got the area rug and plum sheers at Target!


What do you think?

I hope you have a great week 
Love, Laura
