Fireplace/Dining Room Reveal

So, remember how I told you we moved and I am so excited to show you some of the makeovers we've been working on in the new house in Tulsa? Well, we'll get to that. BUT, I owe you a few decor updates from our old house in OKC first. So, without further ado, here is a little makeover we did before selling our last house. We updated most rooms in the house but this was my favorite :)


I really don't know what to call this room of the house. Sometimes I call it "the fireplace room" because... well, duh. And I often call it the living room, but we have another living room right next to it so it's hard to differentiate. Any-who, today it is called the "fireplace/dining room" and it's probably the most decorated room in the house, besides the nursery (which really isn't a nursery anymore since I have a 2 year old!).

Let me remind you what we started with (see the entire before post with a floor plan):

Good bones for sure. But you can tell we just kind of plopped furniture down when we moved in and just kind of left it :)

Here is how that area looks now!

Ahhh so much better!

And a quick view of the dining room before:

And after:

I just love how the room turned out. Painting made the biggest difference for sure. It allowed the wainscoting on the bottom half of the wall to really stand out and painting the beams the same white as the ceiling helped the ceilings seem higher (side note... I'm not a fan of ceiling beams unless it's on a super high ceiling). A few new pieces and the room came together! This was definitely the room that we tended to gather in anytime we had company. It was just so cozy!

So here is rundown on where everything came from:

Paint color: Granite Dust by Valspar
Dining table: west elm
wishbone dining chairs: world market
green chairs: thrifted and painted (from this oooolllldd post)
chandelier: west elm (so hard to see in these photos but it's so pretty!)
console/cabinet: used to be a sink cabinet in my in-laws house... we had a top made from a leftover piece of granite from a friend's project so the whole thing was free!
graphic rug: my in-laws were downsizing so they gave it to us! (similar)
couch: Rowe (from a local store... used to live in our old guest room)
pouf: wayfair
chair: target
picture ledge: made by Eric, inspired by this one
photos/pictures: all made by/taken by us!
roman shade: blinds.com
ceiling light: hayneedle (similar)


  1. Oh my gosh! That wall color! Swoon. That is absolutely beautiful.

  2. This looks so good! I love how you put everything together!

  3. So great! I love that ledge as a way to do a gallery wall, and all of your cool furniture!

  4. It looks beautiful! I love the shelf above the sofa, nice touch with the framed photos on it. It really looks so pretty with that paint colour too :)

    Hope you had a great weekend :) With the heatwave starting we had a quiet one. So hot today too, ugh!
