One Room Challenge – Dining Room Makeover: Our Plan

We’ve decided to join the One Room Challenge for Spring 2018 and we are really excited!

If you haven’t heard of the One Room Challenge before it’s an event where designers and bloggers come together and each makeover one room in their home over six weeks – and share the entire process. There are 20 designers participating and hundreds of bloggers, including us, so you’re sure to find lots of inspiration.

We’ve already been working on plans for our dining room makeover so we thought we’d join the challenge and share the journey as our project unfolds over the next six weeks. The challenge starts now!

Our Dining Room Today

Our dining room has already come a long way since we moved into our home almost nine years ago. It used to have brick floors, dark wood paneling and outdated (even medieval looking!) fixtures.

Today our dining room is much improved. We replaced the floor with vinyl wood flooring, all the walls have been painted a cream, and we have updated fixtures and furniture. We even gave our Pottery Barn farmhouse table a makeover last year.

Fun fact: that giant mirror is something Justin bought himself as a sophomore in high school (nearly twenty years ago!) when he and his mom gave his childhood bedroom a “grown up” makeover.

It’s a peaceful dining room, but also a little boring and needs something that makes us just smile.

We consider our whole home a work of art, so we want every room to be a beautiful and fun with creative and maybe unexpected design. Our dining room is one of the first things you see when you walk in our front door so we want to want to make sure that what you experience sets the tone for the rest of our home.

The Plan

We have some fun plans for our dining room! Our style is a blend of modern, farmhouse and minimalism. We love bright whites with pops of color. We don’t want to give too much away right now, but there’s going to be a lot of sanding, painting, and staining. We’re throwing in a few new furniture pieces (in some unconventional places) and some new artwork I’ll be painting. It’s going to be fun and a lot of work.

We created a mood boards that show the vision of how we want our dining room to look. This design direction definitely makes us happy. We hope we can pull it off well!

This makeover will be spilling out a bit past the wall of our dining room to include the interior of our entryway. Our front door is just an arm’s reach away from the dining room table so we’re planning to update the door to vibe well with the rest of the changes.

We’re excited to start this makeover challenge and be inspired by some other talented designers and bloggers at the same time! Check out at all the other guest participating in the Spring 2018 One Room Challenge. This event happens twice a year so you can see the final outcomes of the ORC from previous years like the most recent one in Fall 2017. We’ve really enjoyed scrolling through those!
