Does your dining room look like it survived an epic Kool-Aid flood?  If the answer is yes, then it’s probably time for some updatin’.  Brighten things up like Annie did with classic paneling and a neutral color scheme that won’t leave you craving a tall glass of Purplesaurus Rex.  (Actually, I think it’s more of a Black Cherry, but that flavor isn’t nearly as catchy).

  1. Eh, I find the new look really boring.

  2. I like how they painted the inset a different color — really sets it off!

  3. Seriously Katie? Would you walk into someone’s home and say that? Of course not. Not all opinions need to be shared.

  4. I saw the after and it was refreshing to know that people still like the look of wood! It’s a great spin on a classic and the little and simple details make it really elegant and festive!

  5. I think the new look looks fresh and clean. I think painting the nook a different colour, and adding a eye-catching dresser livens up the room. Otherwise it might have looked a little cold and uninteresting. Well done!!

  6. I love it!

    And as for the first rude comment from Katie…perhaps you would like to share your dining room with us if you can do better?

    Nice makeover, love the fabric on the chairs!

  8. I think its really pretty and that a lot of work went into this room!

    And I find the first comment…boring. :)

  9. Hi,Nice collection. I like dinning room furniture . thanks for sharing with us

  10. I would agree Kate on one aspect: the color. I just think maybe she was too blunt, LOL. I love bright, yet soothin blues and greens, personally, but not everyone has my taste. Lol. The dining room AFTER is still gorgeous and outranks mine in terms of style! I love the inset sideboard and the color contrast! And the b&b is fabulous!

  11. Not everyone has to like the after. It’s OK to have that opinion. BUT, I will say Katie, even if you think it’s boring, you can at least agree that it’s a definite improvement over the “before”, right?

  14. I LOVE her decision to leave the window bare! When no privacy is needed, a window shouldn’t be hidden behind drapes!

  15. LOVE THIS!!!

  16. Perhaps I was a trifle blunt. I tend to have that problem on occasion.

    Not everyone needs to have the same opinion, and this room is sorely lacking color. The inset painted a different color is a nice decision, as is the wainscoting and bare window, although I do like the cranberry color – I just wouldn’t have executed in in quite that manner.

    I just don’t see much personality in this room – it looks staged for sale, not for living in.

  17. I think I know what it is that makes it look bare other than the window–I just noticed that there aren’t any frilly-frilly things, like wall hangings and such, or even a sideboard or something. THAT’S what it is! Still, it’s a big improvement over that cranberry color!! :)

    I LOVE it too!! The details on the judges molding are just fantastic.

    Maybe Katie would like to post pics of her work. Probably nothing to brag about. How rude she is.
