Dining Room Before and After Pictures

I will post the kitchen ones later this week. We didn't have to do too much to the dining room (compared to the rest of the house). The main change was tearing down the wall between the dining room and kitchen in order to open everything up and so we could have a counter top bar which we love and eat pretty much every meal at!

We are not 100% done with renovating the stairs yet either, we will be replacing the stair treads and finishing off the upper banister.

You can see the rest of our house renovation before and after pictures here.

To do: finish off light switch box, finish top banister, replace stair treads, figure out what to do with lower steps and moulding.

Stunning! I can't decide which I love more, the bookshelves against the brick or the chandelier! Isn't it amazing what opening up between the kitchen and dining room does to the feel of the space?

Gorgeous!!! I love how tearing out the wall opened the space up. I love that you have a brick wall in your dining room, and I love your light fixture. How fun! Thanks for sharing your progress with us. Are you accepting dinner reservations ;-)?!

Love it - looks great. The stairs are quite fantastic once you take that mangy carpet off them. They have a very 50's modern look to them!

The light fixture really is great - where is it from? I am jealous of your exposed brick walls - ours are coverd with plaster and layers and layers of paint :( I have to figure out how to get to the wonderful brick underneath.

And I am also jealous that you seem to be taking many, many steps forward while we move really slowly through our renos.

Looks wonderful - good job!!

@white collar | green soul
Thank you! Yes, the turquoise carpet definitely had to go! The steps themselves are still in pretty bad shape but at least they look better.

The light fixture is from Pottery Barn, it is the Edison Chandelier.

We have actually been really slow going through renos, at least it feels that way. We have done a lot in two years but it feels like everything takes forever!

All of the exposed brick is to die for. Gorgeous.

You are definitely a visual person. I would have never thought to change the color of the railing. It will looks so much better. And your lighting choice is a must have.
It's such an amazing space.
