Sarah shares this dining room update on her blog, Dumped and Discovered. The outdated room is actually in a home belonging to her semi-retired parents, who rarely use the house. While her parents wait for the real estate market to rebound so that they can sell the home, Sarah and her husband are renting (and updating) it. First project: this outdated dining room.
After pulling down the magnolia wallpaper border, Sarah painted the walls a cool, modern gray. That simple update alone is enough to bring this dining room zooming into the 21st century! Sarah also replaced the old brass chandelier with a rehabbed light fixture she picked up at a Habitat for Humanity ReStore and switched out some of the furniture pieces to further stage the room. Simple changes but they go a long way in modernizing the space. Check out the full post, along with many more DIY projects, on Sarah's blog — Dumped and Discovered. (Images: Dumped and Discovered)
