Before and After: Project Classic Living {The Dining Room}

Hope you all had a great weekend! My Mother’s Day was wonderful, being spoiled by my kids and husband. They are amazing! We had my mom over for dinner on the grill. It was absolute perfection! I am back today, with another before and after to show. Today, it’s all about the dining room. To catch up on all things Project Classic Living, visit HERE. For this space, we kept all of the existing furnishings. In time, we will replace the wood end chairs with light, upholstered pieces and also add a bar cart. The main change in this room was with the paint! We added a deep color to the back of the built ins, allowing the white kitchenware to shine. We also lightened up the walls, added art, accessories and new window treatments and lighting. And don’t miss that new pink ceiling! I just imagine my clients having a dinner party, with the lights dimmed. Everyone will have a glow to their face! As always, the amazing after photos are by Sarah Heppell. Enjoy!

Thanks for stopping by! I love the brass accents with the drapery fabric color and with that pink ceiling!! Up tomorrow, the before and after pictures of the nursery.


  1. What a gorgeous transformation! The room is so bright and cheery now. I love the chandelier as well. I have the same one in my kitchen in a different finish. Great job!

  2. Forgot to ask…do you happen to know the width of the table? We are replacing ours which is a little too narrow. We keep bumping our heads on the chandelier but the table in your photo looks like there is enough space. Thanks!

    • Thank you so much, Shelley! I bet this chandelier looks beautiful in the other finish!! The width of this dining table is 48″ and the length is 72″ I hope this helps! :)
