Here's my new dining room! It's a weird little box sandwiched between the kitchen and living room, and has been the bane of my existence since I moved in almost two years ago.

 

I of course neglected to take a "before" picture, but there was a giant dark table, ugly blinds, and basically it made for a very uninviting dining space (hence, eating most meals on the couch) that ended up being mainly storage for whatever crap I didn't want to deal with.

 

About $200 later, it looks like this! Fortunately, I sold the previous table & chairs for $140, plus some other things, so I almost broke even.

The picture is pretty dark because of the light coming in the window, but you get the idea! The curtain is really a nice creamsicle orange that lets a lot of light in. On the wall is a picture of Joan Didion, and I am still deciding what to put on the big empty wall!

I am so inspired by all of the photos. Here are some of our front porch which used to house a collection of shoes, umbrellas, rakes, etc. I cleared it and my husband fancied it up. All I contributed was the white heart-shaped chair I found at a local resell shop. Hubby is going to paint the pink chair, which we got free.

BTW: The box of books is waiting to be put into the car for a trip to Goodwill tomorrow. I de-cluttered 33 books from other rooms today, which was really hard for me to do.

TracyGladRags, I love your space! It is so peaceful, uncluttered, yet bright! Great work -- I bet you love going in that room now!

 

mromans, you're inspiring me to clear the clutter from my porch and make it a nice place to sit. Thanks for sharing!!

Love those chairs on your porch!  I have a old rustic wicker on my back porch with a red and white cushion that I love

I'd love to see it if you have any photos.

I like all the pics. I am wondering if anyone could post pics of their storage? For misc. items like batteries, linens, chargers, etc., This is the bane of my existence, lol.

Allthesekids--here is some of my downstairs bathroom storage. The bookcase was purchased at a yard sale from a home business, but it fit in the spot perfectly. On the back of the door, I placed a good quality shoe organizer, and we use that for stuff like hats, gloves, etc. Right now it is a bit messy with mixed seasons, since I haven't gotten around to putting away the winter stuff, yet! I know the bathroom is a strange place to store hats and gloves, but it works for us!

Someone else mentioned using a shoe organizer and I think i am going to try it! Thanks for sharing.

I use the same type of shoe organizer in my hall coat closet. I went with the clear pastic one from Walmart. Easy to see the small stuff like kid gloves and hats.

Use it for umbrellas, hats, gloves, scarves
post #1113 of 1163

Yes! I just bought a shoe organizer and I love it. Way better than having a pile of shoes on the floor, and I'm telling myself I can't own more shoes than will fit in it ;)

She also got a teepee for her birthday and that is sometimes up in the living room. If you don't have a lot of stuff, you can live in 600 sq ft with a toddler and have room for a teepee :)

LOVE the bed and the teepee! I like that you don't have a massive couch. We have a big couch and I don't care for it. I love the wall decals too. I've been wanting to get some but I've no idea where in the house to put them. I def want them on kid level though, like yours are.

Love the walk way and stepping stones! Looks good!

 

 

This is my favorite thread on MDC. We've moved since I first posted in it but I did declutter A LOT before we did and it helped. Still need to declutter more though, mainly my husbands stuff that hes hanging onto (old games/dvds/martial arts weapons etc) and toys again. The living room only has a lounger, chair, tv, tv box and large couch though.

My kitchen all clean/clear/decluttered. The pots and pans/dishes/cups are all neatly put away with nothing fancy; just cabinets. joy.gif

Looks good!

I hope to be able to show off my newly painted "toffee orange" bedroom soon. I have to wax the floor and juggle furniture, yet:-)

post #1119 of 1163

Sounds great! We had orange walls at the apt we used to live in. We chose to paint them that color and it looked nice.

post #1120 of 1163

My bedroom used to be a taupe/grayish-tan color. It looked great with dark wood furniture, like walnut or mahogany. But we needed to repaint because of water damage and my mom is letting me use the antique dresser and commode that her MIL gave my parents when they got married. The wood is more of an amber-y color, some kind of fruitwood I think. So I wanted a color that would look good with that as well as dark oak. Ds's room is blue (pictures are somewhere on this thread), my mom's room is cream, the guest room is yellow, and the living room and upstairs bathroom are green, so I wanted to go with something not blue, green, or yellow. I have issues because when we moved into this house, every room was blue. Then my parents painted everything off white. So after all blue, then all white, followed by more apartment white when I lived in apartments, I'm enjoying more non-blue color.

 

I did get the floor waxed. My next problem is that I scored an Ikea Malm bed from a curb alert. It is super modern and blond wood. I have to figure out what to do with it to make it look ok with everything else. We're hoping the platform bed frame will work out so we'll be able to get rid of our box springs which make an unpleasant ridge up the middle of the bed. It is real wood veneer (on particle board) rather than the plastic "birch effect" so I think I can sand it and stain it darker. If I could find fabulous fabric for cheap, I could make a slipcover for the headboard and footboard. Or I could paint it. But I think it would look odd to have a big chunk of solid color painted furniture with all the antique unpainted wood furniture. It might be nice it I did some stenciling. I figure painting/stenciling will be a backup plan if sanding and staining is a big flop. 

 

I am pleased with the orange color and it looks great with such a variety of bright accent colors: aqua, turquoise, apple green, purple, etc.
