Dining room: Before and After

When we moved into our house, the paint on the walls was very neutral.  This was great while we got things settled and decided how we wanted to decorate.  Until we have money to go and get the furniture we really want, we need to work with what we have. 

This is the dining room before:

With a little paint on the walls and trim, some inexpensive but great drapes (made by my MIL), a Wisteria Outlet lantern in place of the monkey chandelier, and a little painting done while the baby slept...voila!

The Dining Room after:

There's still quite a bit "decorative" to do, but the bones are there.  The other stuff can wait.
