Shabby Chic Dining Room

My dining room came together more perfectly than I could have imagined. I absolutely love this space!

The table and chairs is one of the few pieces I actually bought for my apartment. It was redone by a sweet friend in Florence, SC, who has quite a knack for all things crafty! Thank you, Susan Weber! I recovered the seat cushions with a French toile type fabric from Hobby Lobby. The crystal candle holders in the center were a $12 Ross find months ago, and the crystals on the chandelier are from an old redo my mother did years ago. They are originally from Pottery Barn. 

My wet bar turned out exactly how I hoped. The chest is actually a smaller and taller piece that matches the chest in my living room. I painted them both using homemade chalk paint in Driftwood Gray from Martha Stewart's line at Home Depot. The lamp was $8 from a thrift store and painted in homemade chalk paint in Talc, also from Martha Stewart, and the shade was given to me by Susan. My ice bucket was originally blue, but is now a sweet pink with a coat of spray paint. 

The neatest project was the ceiling medallion turned wall art. This is an old one that came from my parents bedroom. Our house had too many chandeliers and not enough ceiling fans, so this became one of the most original projects. One solid coat of Martha Stewart metallic paint in Anchor Gray made this piece shine, literally, as there is a lot of glitter in this paint! And who doesn't love glitter, right?
