It's Sew Sunday - Dining Room Make-Over

Our dining room could use a little love...It's small, not technically a room, and has white chairs that have been sat on for quite awhile now - so to call them white is quite a stretch.  We needed an updated look big time!

Here are some of the before photos:

This long maroon curtain has been following me around since I moved to Seattle!  The wall art is old and from Target.  It hung on the wall in my first college apartment.  We love our little thrift store blue chair (off to the right in the photos) - so when we decided to change up the room's look, I kept this color in the back of my mind.

So dC and I found this great dusty blue Chevron print fabric and I was in chair love!  We simply removed the old seat using a screwdriver and stapled the new fabric on and cut the excess off.
I sewed some new curtains to match and it just brightened up the whole room! 

Sewing curtains is not much more than straight lines and  A LOT of ironing.  I love my new machine, so it's a pleasure to sit there while I sew yard after yard! 
The silver plates and Stencil Wall Art lighten up an otherwise empty wall!  I am really pleased with how it turned out!  What do it yourself projects do you have going on? 


  1. love that chevron in that color! i have an ottoman in my living room just like it!

    1. I love it too! Honestly would make things in every color all over the house if it wasn't an overkill ;)
