Sometimes it’s just a simple decluttering, a few fresh coats of paint and a less-is-more attitude that completely transforms a room from kind of dark to light and bright, as it did in Cortney’s dining room.

From Cortney:

Our family spends a lot of time at the dinner table. We (mainly me) were looking for a change. I really wanted to brighten the area and free up the wall space that our hutch was on. We found the new dry bar on Washington, DC Craigslist for $20! In my eyes it was a miracle, it’s in great shape and it’s the perfect size for our small space. We then painted the walls with Behr paint in cloud white. I painted the dining table with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. The whole process took about 2 – 3 days.
