Dining Room by Ashlee Proffitt

In the fall I shared with you my dining room along with a few updates I wanted to make to the space. Although there are a few future dreams I have for area, the dining room has come along beautifully so I wanted to share it with you!

Updates Made

  • Table repainted white (When I originally had refinished the table, I used a polyurethane protective coating and it turned the table a yucky yellow, so the entire thing had to be stripped, sanded and repainted. Thankfully I will not make that mistake again.)
  • Walls Painted (Pot of Cream by Behr)
  • Gorgeous New Pendant Light (Short Drum Pendant by West Elm)
  • Switched Layout
  • Gold Striped Canvas
  • Gold Patterned Dessert Plates  (Target Threshold – from Christmas season)

Around here I am busy, not necessarily productive in the ways I would sometimes like, but productive in what truly matters most… like loving and ministering to the hearts of my children and husband. Around here […]

Our family moved into a dream of a home just days after Christmas. I am the consummate and constant little decorator so you can imagine how much fun I am having working to turn this house into a home. Admittedly, there is always a bit of stress that goes along with my type of ‘fun,’ […]

Yesterday I posted Part 1 of Nate’s home featuring his open concept living and dining room.  The next space I tackled was the kitchen area that included a large space he wanted to turn into a study area. His kitchen already had great features with upgraded maple cabinets, dark granite counter tops and stainless steel […]

Months ago. Literally. I hinted at a new kind of project I had taken on.  However, posting about said new project took months since the actual completion of the project took a little longer than anticipated. I love home decorating and styling. Love. I am the girl that when given ‘fun’ money from our family […]
