This year, I had the opportunity to work on several different room redesigns, from rooms in my own condo, to rooms for clients. I’ve enjoyed all of them, and loved the results in all of them, but I do have a favorite.
You might be surprised, but my favorite room from this past year is actually my breakfast room. I don’t have a picture of the whole shebang taken after the installation of the chandelier. In fact, the room still isn’t completely finished. I still have pillows to make, chairs to purchase and refinish/reupholster, some crown molding to install, and some decorative items to make/buy. But even in its unfinished state, it’s still my favorite.
Here’s what the breakfast room looked like when we bought the condo.
Here’s the progress I had made as of this past spring, with the new cabinets, banquette seating with upholstered back, valance, cubby holes, and new table.
Later in the year, I added the hand-painted family name sign that I had wanted to make:
And then just a couple of months ago, I finally added an apple green chandelier:
Just a few more details to go, and I can officially call this room “finished”, and then I can get some real, official “after” photos.
Addicted 2 Decorating is where I share my DIY and decorating journey as I remodel and decorate the 1948 fixer upper that my husband, Matt, and I bought in 2013. Matt has M.S. and is unable to do physical work, so I do the majority of the work on the house by myself. You can learn more about me here.
