Dining Room Makeover

I love the design and creative process that takes place when decorating our home and can’t wait to share it with all of you throughout Within the Grove.  I have never had an agenda or any idea as to what I will be doing within a blank space of our home until that creative moment strikes. 

Let me introduce you to an area where my creativeness has blossomed : our dining room.  This happens to be one of my favorite spaces within our home.  This area started as a blank canvas when we bought our home last June.

Modern Dining RoomI am sure you can guess my favorite part of the dining room: the bold stenciled wall.  I can’t express enough how much I love it! I often get asked why I didn’t just do wallpaper.  I love the creative process it took to paint this wall and using wallpaper would have been to quick and simple with what I was looking for.

Stenciled Wall

With a stencil I bought from Cute Stencils, a gallon a paint, a mini paint roller, and my sanity this wall was created.  From start to finish it was 18 hours worth of work.  Was it worth it?  You tell me.  I certainly think so!

This quirky moose head was given to me by my mother.  She stumbled upon it at a local Homegoods and immediately thought of me.  I wonder why?  It also goes great with the buffet I found at Goodwill.  Yes, a steal of a deal!

I am proud the most of our dining room farmhouse table and bench.  It was the first piece added to our dining room.  This farmhouse table is one of a kind.  Both pieces were handcrafted by my very talented husband.  I leave the building to him and he leaves the painting and staining to me.  We make quite the duo when focused.
