Modern Dining Room Makeover Reveal
Welcome to my dining room makeover reveal. For this makeover, I really wanted my dining room to have the same vibes as my living room, staircase and kitchen. I think I accomplished that.
Dining Room: Before
Week 1 : Before Pics and the Plans
Week 3: Coordinating Rugs in Open Floor Plans
Week 4: MCM Inspired IKEA Besta Hack
Week 5: Didn’t happen. I was too exhausted from setting up my shop.
The ceiling stencil didn’t happen.

Despite the bright colors in the mood board, the room is a very relaxing and tranquil feeling. I’m keeping it pretty simple because I desperately need a peaceful environment right now.
I’ve been too busy to actually enjoy it, but it sure does make me happy when I walk through it, even if the rest of the house is trashed.
The table was a lucky vintage find at a thrift store. It was the kind of find that you swipe up before anyone else sees it. I bought a set of chairs from my friend, Cassie, and then bought another set to match.
The chandelier was found at an antique market in Sicily. I love it so much. The roses are hand-sculpted and have imperfect fingerprints in them.
Table (similar) | Chairs | Rug
The curtains were dyed and trimmed out to match my living room curtains. I love the bit of softness they add to the room.
I added cabinets to the room surrounding the French doors. Shelves will be eventually be added so that my dreams of a library can be fulfilled. For now, the cabinets add so much extra storage.
I painted the cabinets to blend in with the walls. This helps my small room from feeling smaller. The box on top is my solution to the never-ending paper problem.
I repainted my china cabinet and sold it. It was replaced with an IKEA besta hack. This cabinet holds a ton of board games. In the winter, we hibernate and play games a lot.
The wallpaper panel was my solution to needing a piece of art crazy enough to compliment my cabinet.
I used a hoarded roll of the Opalhouse paper. This was the perfect use for 1 roll of paper. We love looking at the design and seeing weird, unintended designs.
I love how the chairs fit around the table. So far, my card game-playing son has no objections to the table, so I’m happy.
I never thought I would be a rug-in-the-dining-room type of person, but it adds so much warmth to the room. Gracie is also a fan.
Doesn’t everyone’s dog match their rooms?
I’m so happy with my new dining room makeover, even if it isn’t finished 100% to completion.

Big thanks to HANDy Paint company for providing me with products to paint with. I have a few weeks off in December and there are a few walls that I’m thinking about painting at that time.

AMAZING room, Emy! Love the color palette. And that IKEA hack chest will always be one of my favs. You did a great job, my friend. Now time to enjoy! ~~ Susie from The Chelsea Project
Thanks Susie! I love how your room turned out too!
Wow Emy, I love it! Those chairs are so sleek and hot :). The black just grounds the space and balances it out. I love the pretty pops of color you added…the artwork, buffet (amazing!), the rug, and the lovely vase. Great job! I know you and family will enjoy it.
Thanks Delia! The chairs are surprisingly comfy!
Oh Emy, this room has so much character…so fun! I love all the changes you made to this space (although “before” photo was great too). The sideboard looks amazing (great idea with paint) and your doggie looks so relaxed in this newly transformed room. Enjoy! Xoxo, Tee
Thanks Tee! My doggie approves. Even if she can no longer sit under our chairs while we eat. 😉
Love all of this gorgeous color! Enjoy your beautiful space and congratulations on completing the One Room Challenge!
Thanks Libbie! The One Room Challenge is always worth the effort. 🙂
You have blown me away! I love the way you painted the mirror and the dresser to match. I adore the eclectic mix here! Stunning! You should be so proud!
Thanks Jewel! I painted the mirror years ago and I love the tone on tone look.
Emy you nailed it, way to go girlfriend! I love your black chairs and tulip table!!
Thanks Tina! I love your room too!! <3
Looks SOOOO good Emy!! Love love love it! Those chairs, that table – ALL THE THINGS. So well done friend!
Thanks Susie! So glad to have “met” you during this challenge.
I love the modern flare you have captured in your dining room. Plus it really feels like you have created so much more space with the less is more approach on furniture. The room looks larger and flows nicely for your dinner guests. Beautiful job Emy I am always so inspired by your colorful designs.
Thanks Jen! I love how spacious the room feels now!
I love that you have a game cabinet! We have TONS of games too. Also those black chairs look SO good in here! Congrats on surviving this short six weeks!
We love our games in the winter when we have to hibernate. On snow days, we play games all day long. It’s my favorite.
Its a beautiful and unique space. I love the curtains you dyed. Sooo cool!
I can always count on you to use bold color in a beautiful way, Emy. This makeover is wonderful. I love your design choices.
Also, a fun side note is that I had very similar chairs in my Barbie townhouse when I was a kid. Ha!
Thanks Stacy! I always aspire to Barbie’s dreamhouse. 😉 Kidding/not kidding.
Emy- everything looks great! Love all of the furniture, and the wallpaper art.
Thanks Jackie! It feels very “me” now.
love love love love it! I’m definitely having a moment with that blue you chose, and your dresser DIY is fabulous!
Thanks Ariel! I’m looking forward to sitting in there are stuffing my face this week. 🙂
