Rachel's Home Makeover..Part 2

I bet you thought we forgot!  Au contraire!  Ann and I have been quite busy working on the makeover of my living room/sunroom/dining room.  Here are just a few of the things we have been up to:

 - ordered new sofa for the new LR/Sunroom
 - had slipcovers made for the DR chairs
 - installed new wooden blinds in the LR/Sunroom and DR
 - new chest in the entry foyer
 - ordered new accent pillows for sofa
 - ordered new lamps for the sofa table
 - ordered new chandelier for foyer
 - ordered extra large lantern chandelier for the former DR, now library

If you recall, we made the original LR the DR (shown here), moved the LR to the sunroom (decorating that comes next), and made the old DR a library.  Here is a photo of the new slipcovers and new shades in the DR:

I just love the way the white linen slipcovers look.  They are so sheer (I used the linen curtain panels that I sell at the shop) that the light gives the chairs an ethereal look.  (Great job on the covers Karen!) The new blinds are a greyish wood tone as opposed to the brownish color of the old bamboo ones, which looks good with the grey curtains (again linen panels from the shop).  You can also glimpse the new chest in the foyer at the right of the photo.  And, best of all, most all of the items we used are available at Brocante Home!  The chairs are one-of-a-kind vintage from the shop.

The room looked like this before:

P.S. - Merci Beaucoup! to all who attended Sunday's Design Class, Furniture Painting.  We had a great attendance and I look forward to seeing some of their finished projects!

Au Revoir!  Rachel
