Dark Giant Room

Our front room in the house is huge.  It is a combo living room ~ dining room.  Originally we had the dining table and chairs closes to the kitchen, but it was cramped.  So, I moved the dining table toward the front windows.  

Lots of dark wood antique pieces, dark antique oriental rugs, dark walnut stained wood floors and a red couch.  Get the picture?  If not see below.  Check out the red couch and dark floors here.

Solution One....chair covers changed.
 They went from brown to a light grey/green, depending on the light.

 Took me a couple hours and two and half yards of fabric.  Cutting Corners had their annual Janaury sale and it cost me $10 bucks to change out the covers.  

Next up... the dark curtains with heavy lining need to go too!

  1. Very pretty! It's amazing how one small change can make a world of difference!

  2. Wow, I can't believe you did all that for ten dollars! I keep saying I am going to change our dining room seat cushions, but I never quite get around to it... You've inspired me.

  3. Way to go Lori! The room might be a little dark but it's beautiful. Your furniture is beautiful and so classic. I love the shutters too. Can't wait to see what you do with the curtains. I've always admired your decorating. :)

  4. What a difference! Truly a fantastic job.

    Thank you so very much for joining Thoughts of Home on Thursday. Your presence really helped to make it very special. I hope you will return again and again.

    Have a wonderful weekend and Happy Valentine's Day!
