Dining Room Transformation Revealed

I’ve been so excited to show you my clients’ dining room…it’s finally finished! When Kerri and Tim asked me to help them with the makeover, they literally had a blank slate and just a table to start with. Below is a before shot of the room and the mood board we worked from.

Drumroll Please…..


I absolutely love this room and wish it were my own! A lot of blood, sweat and tears went into the making of it, but the end result was well worth it.

I think I’m the proudest of the fact that all of the furniture is second hand cast-offs I found while thrifting.



The dining table was a thrift find that Kerri and Tim purchased before hiring me to design the room. After refinishing it in a driftwood style, this solid wood table looks like a piece from Restoration Hardware.

I have to say my favorite element in the room would have to be these chairs. This is by far one of the most satisfying transformations I’ve done. Check out the before pic of these rickety little cane back chairs that were headed for the dumpster at my local thrift store.

After a good scrubbing and some heavy duty wood glue, these ugly ducklings got a muddled metallic finish. Then they got a major upholstery job and nail head trim to give them a high-end, modern edge. I knew they had star potential!

The china hutch was a must for Kerri as she wanted to display sentimental family heirlooms. Another thrift find, I knew the clean lines of this hutch would work perfectly with our design plan.

I refinished it in bright white, and Kerri and Tim added a modern gray fabric backboard to give it an even more custom feel.

Custom drapery and a gorgeous crystal chandelier really gave the room its finishing touches.


It was such a pleasure working with Kerri and Tim. Its so exciting to see a room come to life with second hand furniture transformed.

Happy Summer!!!
