Lisa from A Vintage Vine's Dining Room

I'm so happy to have Lisa from A Vintage Vine sharing her fabulous dining room with us today.  I first "met" Lisa when she linked up to one of my House Party's and I'm so glad she did.

I immediately fell in love with her dining room.  The color palette is perfect and she did an amazing job finding and refinishing the furniture in the room as well as stenciling the walls.  Stop by A Vintage Vine to see tutorials on how she made the faux stone top on her dining table as well as lots of other great furniture before-and-afters.  She is one talentedand sweet lady!
Good Morning Friends! I am Lisa from {A Vintage Vine}. I am so happy to be here at Suzy's wonderful blog! I was very excited when Suzy asked me to Guest Post for her today! Thanks Suzy!

As you know, her blog is a wealth of inspiration and her weekly House Party is a linky party you can not miss!

Over the summer, I took a break from blogging. When I returned to blogging, I ran across Suzy's Blog and it has fast become one of my daily reads! I am here today to share with you my most recent room makeover, the Dining Room....This room had many faces before it became the "Dining Room" again. It had been an office, a dining room and finally an extra bedroom for child #4...Needless to say this room was having an identity crisis!
I started out with a very blank canvas. All this room had was paint on the wall and 4 black chairs. In order to complete this room makeover...I needed furniture! I found a table at my local thrift store. The table had great legs but the tabletop was a wood laminate and would need painting. I created a faux stone finish on the top and painted the legs with a homemade chalk paint.  

The next piece of furniture I wanted for this room was a buffet. Again, my local thrift store came through for me! I found a 70's something bedroom dresser that would work wonderfully as a buffet in that room! It even had the original "Bassett" furniture stamp located inside the top drawer. The buffet also needed some TLC and a new paint job. The original hardware was in great shape, I cleaned it with "KRUD KUTTER" and decided to keep it.   

To complete this rooms makeover, with Hubby's helped, we installed bead board below the already existing chair rail. I also added a chalkboard wall and made a homemade stencil to put above the chair rail and bead board.
Here are a few more after pictures....Hope you enjoy!

Thanks again Suzy! It was a pleasure to Guest Post here today!
