"Grown-Up Glam Dining Reveal: Part 2"

I'm back to reveal Part 2 of my last client project.  Believe it or not, I actually haven't had the opportunity to do many formal dining rooms.  I think it speaks to the way we leave these days.  There's likely not a lot of formal entertaining going on in most homes.  Unfortunately, my home doesn't have a formal dining room.  If it did, I'd totally use it. 

So the plan was to update the existing dining room with a few key accents, including a new rug, drapery, wallpaper and chairs.  This is where we began....

An awesome sale on this trellis style rug took us in a bit of a different direction from the start, but it worked out for the best. 
I'm really pleased with how things turned out.  So here goes...


We needed to spruce up the seating but didn't want to get rid of eight perfectly good dining chairs, so we opted for reupholstery. 
For maximum impact and minimal costs, we used this black animal print to dress things up a bit.  We kept the head chairs as is. 
Once again, Baity's Custom Upholstery knocked it out of the park. 

I was dead set on adding a bar cart to this space.  There wasn't an over abundance of floor space so I knew I needed something small and round.  Thanks goodness for antique shows, but I scored this baby for a song!
Needless to say, one of my favorite things was outfitting this cart with barware.  Drinks anyone?
So, what do you think?  The client love it so much.  The front entry opens into a foyer that's connected to this space so it really does make a great first impression.
There's just one more component to this three part reveal and I'll give you a hint.....it includes another amazing Craigslist furniture transformation.  Until then....
