Fall 2016 One Room Challenge [Week 6: Bold Graphic Glam Dining Room Reveal]

My. Oh. My. I blinked and these last 6 weeks were gone. The 6 week One Room Challenge, that is!

After moving into our new home this summer, I couldn’t wait to have a space to makeover for the Fall 2016 One Room Challenge hosted by Calling It Home. There was a multitude of rooms to choose from. Only a few needed to be completely overhauled, while almost all needed some lovin’. I knew it wouldn’t be as easy as unpacking the boxes and putting out all of our belongings. The house needed to groomed and our collection of things needed to be curated, but ultimately, I wanted it to feel like us. Not a replica of our old house, but a new and improved version of the house we called home for 4 years. Our first home as a family of four.

But today, I give you a space I’ve waited patiently to create. After turning our old dining room into a play room and reading nook, thoughts of creating a real dining space again have always been on my mind. An adult space for entertaining friends, hosting family and sharing food, libations and laughs with loved ones.  My thoughts came to fruition when I started working in here the first week of October and now, the space feels more like a dream come true. Today, I’m sharing the reveal of our bold, graphic, glam dining room!

A quick rewind to week 1, when I shared the before pictures

You’ll probably hear me say, “Feel head-over-heels-in-love…” or “love at first sight…” when describing some of the key elements in the room, but it is the honest truth. The chairs, the china hutch [thrifted for a mere $39 at that], the art, the lights…oh, the lights!

I also scoured IKEA, Michael’s, Pier One and Luna Bazaar for the rest! Oh and I almost forgot to mention the gorgeous gold flatware I spotted at Target. They’re actually sold individually for only $2 per piece, so I had no guilt scooping up an armload of them and placing them in my cart. I’ve wanted pretty gold flatware for ages, but they’ve always seemed so pricey and decided our everyday silverware would do the job. Not anymore!

I have truly never used blue in my decor before, but after I fell in love with the navy curtains, I decided blue was going to get mixed in with my black, white and gold. I didn’t even think twice about it! Bold Graphic Glam Dining Room Makeover | One Room Challenge Fall 2016 | black, white, blue and gold Tablescape with Modern, Eclectic touches | This is our Bliss | www.thisisourbliss.com Bold Graphic Glam Dining Room Makeover | One Room Challenge Fall 2016 | black, white, blue and gold Tablescape with Modern, Eclectic touches | This is our Bliss | www.thisisourbliss.com

The new bar cart got a quick makeover after I took it out of the box. I know, I know. Why isn’t good, good enough?! Well, I wanted to marble-ize it, so I did just that. Full tutorial coming soon!

Hip, hip, hooray! Who’s ready for a cocktail?! I can tell you after these past 6 weeks, I think happy hour is coming a tad bit early today. I knew what I was getting myself into with the ORC after participating in the Spring 2015 One Room Challenge when I revamped our guest room, but I’m not sure if it’s because I took a couple of challenges off, or if my style has changed so much or if it’s that we’re in a new home and I didn’t know where to begin!! It is more than likely a combination of all of the above, but I tell you what. This was indeed a chaaaallenge. 100% worth it, but still quite an undertaking.

Drinks [and chocolates!] are now an arm’s length away. No need to get up and head to the kitchen. We’ve got you covered!

After finding this steal-of-a-deal china hutch at my new favorite thrift store, I went around in circles debating whether or not I should paint it.

I even asked you guys! Leave it or paint it white. I ultimately decided if I left it as-is, but obviously cleaned it up and zhushed the hardware, I could always paint it down the road. So, I left the beautiful wood color which really warms up the space, but couldn’t help but give it a quick update. Modernize it a bit.

I simply added this fun, graphic paper to the back and styled it. I even busted out our wedding china which has been in it’s original packaging since our wedding 5 years ago. I don’t think I’m alone here, but I am happy to be able to display it in the hutch. Now, actually using it is a totally different story!

Another piece that made it’s way in the space is the lucite bench. Since our table expands to seat up to 10 people, but we didn’t really have the space to house 10 chairs, this was the perfect alternative. It sits in front of the window, but can easily be slid up to the table to seat an additional 2 – 3 people. I totally justified the purchase in my mind when I, here I go, fell head-over-heels in love with it. It HAD to come home with me and I’m thrilled with how it looks and fits in the space.

Function + beauty is always a win-win in my book! Don’t you agree?

The room quickly evolved into a modern, eclectic dining space with prints and pattern galore. It’s a bit edgy, a tad feminine and a lot me! I’m looking forward to seeing how this space sets the tone for the rest of our new home. Stay tuned to see more!

Before I thank my sponsors, I want to give a mega big shout-out to T for my beautiful cornice boards. He worked so hard to put these together for the space and I couldn’t be happier with the end result. They so *make* the windows and have such an impact on the space. While, I’m at it, I’ll thank my dad, too, for helping us get these bad boys mounted to the wall. Through trial and error, we got ’em up and they look amazing!

Thank you to my brand partners for providing me with such fabulous products to use in our dining room space. I’m so grateful for your partnership!

  1. Pingback: One Room Challenge Reveals I Love | Love & Renovations

  2. Rachael, wow! Your dining room is gorgeous!! I love the windows framed with the navy blue curtains and cornices, so dramatic! The art, table accessories, hutch styling, lighting, all come together so beautifully! Love what you’ve done in here and hope you are enjoying it!!

  3. Rachael, your dining room is absolutely gorgeous! There are so many elements I love – your mix of patterns and colors, the patterned backing in your hutch, your chandelier, your stenciled ceiling… the list goes on! You did an amazing job on this makeover!

  4. Oh my gosh I can’t even handle how much I love this space! It’s classic/chic/glam and the ceiling…..wow! You really outdid yourself! Makes me want to come have dinner and drinks!

  5. Hey Rachael, wow…don’t know where to start. You really changed the whole feel of the room and it surely is glamorous and chic. I think the hutch looks great, but there are so many possibilities with it if you ever do want to change it. And that lucite bench!? Gorgeous. Had to pop over and check it out and see if I can find a place for it in my home.

    Well Done!

    Lynn

    • Thank you so very much, Lynn! I’ve wanted a glam space in our home for awhile now. With 2 little boys running around, the majority of the house is so kid-friendly, but decided it was okay to have one small space for us adults ha! Cheers to the end of the ORC and having a new spot to entertain in!

  6. Rachael!! It is absolutely fantastic!! I love the dark contrast of the drapes; those nailhead chairs are to die for… and that hutch?!?! What a find! You did an amazing job!

  7. I really wish you would show a wide pic of the finished room that compares to the pic of the before room. I love all the little tight shots of the accents and finishing touches. But it is hard to get the feel of the whole room, to decide if I like the style, without ever seeing the whole thing in a picture. (Obviously you can’t get the whole thing in a pic, but just a comparable wide shot like the empty before room)

    Also, is that stencil on the ceiling? Love that!!

    • Thanks for stopping by, Michelle! yes, its a stencil and I cited the source at the end of the post if you’re interested in one for yourself! I only had 1 or 2 shots that were really similar to the before and they didn’t quite turn out. Hopefully I can shoot a wider angle shot and then update the post soon.

  8. It looks sooo good!! I love that bench – and leather pillow?! How cool! This will be such a fun perfect space around the holidays for drinks and laughs!

    • Thanks, Emy! I was shocked when I found it too! I had actually been eyeing it for a couple weeks, but the price was higher and I didn’t really know if I wanted to put a hutch on that wall. Then I stopped into the shop one day and saw it was $39 and realized how super thin and narrow it was – perfect for that wall – and decided I had to have it!! One truck rental on a Sunday afternoon later, it came home with us!

  9. What an amazing transformation… I can’t think why you didn’t hang onto those curtains. 😉 Here’s what I will steal: the lucite wine rack… the lighting (just all of it), and your bench. Consider yourself warned. xx

  10. Oh my, this is good! Every decor choice you made was the right choice. This room is filled with drama (in a good way). I love the ceiling stencil and the black painted outline. Your tablescaping has game got game and that hutch is something to swoon over. Absolutely perfect!!

  11. Oh my gosh, Rachel. I had high expectations and this blew them away! I would pick this one up and plop it right in our house without changing a thing! You killed it! And why don’t any of my bar carts have leather handles? Swanky!
