Dining Room Update

About a year ago I inherited my parent's old dining room table, chairs and china cabinet.  I was excited because we didn't have dining room furniture and had no plans to buy anything in the near or distant future.  I never really thought of changing the furniture until I saw some of the furniture my friend, Emily, had painted.

Emily came over and we talked about different things I could do with the furniture.  I decided I should look around on Pinterest and come back with some ideas.  This china cabinet became the inspiration for my dining room set.

Emily used this picture as a guide and I was almost speechless when I saw the results.  Emily is so talented!  Here are some "before" pictures.

If you can't tell by the number of pictures I took, I am OBSESSED with this furniture! And I'm so grateful that my parent's old furniture has a new life in my house. Thank you, thank you, thank you Emily!!

If you live in St. Louis and want to get in touch with Emily, leave a comment with your email address and I'll put you in touch!
