A Dining Room Story
‘Twas the day before Thanksgiving
and at the Carson place
was a busy Brittany panicking
because she had an empty dining space.
She had family arriving for dinner the next day
but she grew calmer knowing she could
make her dining room great.
So off to At Home, World Market, and Hobby Lobby she went
with a vision in mind and money to be spent.
She returned home with decor, furniture, and textiles galore,
one would have thought that she bought up the store.
(She didn’t though cause she had set a clear budget
and no matter how cute the item she would not go above it!)
She styled up her room with the help of her hubby.
At a quarter to midnight, she finished. Isn’t it lovely?
Wait! To truly appreciate this room’s transformation, I think it is important for me to share what the room looked like when we first purchased our new home.
It was a peachy brown dungeon. First item on the agenda, change the wall color and take down the dated chandelier!
We had the old chandelier removed and recessed lighting installed. We also had the room painted in a contrasting color scheme to give it a more modern feel. For months, this room has been an empty space because I was working on other rooms in my house. Here is the final product.

I love the outcome!! I plan to add some curtains to the window once I find some to compliment the space. If you have any suggestions for the color, pattern, or fabric type for the curtains let me know in the comments section below.
