Our dining room makeover is finally (almost) complete. An update of the final results of our monochrome interior home improvements.


Our dining room monochrome makeover is finally (almost!) complete

Finally we have finished, well almost. Bar a few finishing touches, a couple more shelves and accessories and we are done. Our dining room makeover is done. From my first thoughts back in January which I shared here; Dining room revamp, where we started, to now it seems to have taken ages but we have made sure we have done it as well as we could! From laying new flooring, to finding some damp in one of the walls we have certainly hit a few snags along the way. 

Then as recently as this Easter weekend I decided we needed to remove the horrible hatch that was between the dining room and the kitchen. An easier job than I thought until it came to replastering the wall! I left the OH to it and went shopping, lol! 





Bye Bye kitchen hatch! I was so glad to see this go. 



Our new pendant light from BHS



Prints from Ingrid Design and Over & Over. Thing 4 and 5 trying out the table and keeping an eye on the biscuits! 




Ikea Mosslanda shelf holds the new personalised prints from A Piece Of.... and Heather Alstead design. Also the lovely monochrome nesting dolls from Psikhouvanjou. Yay! tray from Buddy & Bear, Stokke Tripp Trapp in black and bespoke monochrome biscuits made by Honeywell Bakes.



An Ikea Kallax unit holds the PC, some more prints and A Little Lovely Company lightbox





More pictures of the finished look. The gorgeous biscuits were made to order by the lovely ladies at Honeywell Bakes and they looked fab on the table. 


I absolutely love the end result. I did wonder at one point if it would need a bit of colour adding into the mix but I love it just the way it is. There are still a few shelves to go up and a few more accessories to buy and I also need some placemats for the table when I find some that I like. 

We had afternoon tea in the new dining room today and I got to show it to my relatives and they all loved it, now just to revamp the rest of the house!

  2. Wow I love a good room transformation and that is one impressive make-over! Love the monochrome look as it is so light and bright. Also good work on leaving your husband to plaster over the hatch whilst you did the very important job of shopping :-) #HomeEtc

    1. Thank you so much for your comments. I am really pleased that my mood board helped with decision making and it all came together as planned, eventually. The removal of the hatch was a last minute decision but I was so pleased to see it go. Just a couple more shelves and accessories to add. #HomeEtc
