Hello friends! Thank you so much for all of the positive feedback on our vacation home remodel! I am so thrilled to finally share all the photos and details with you and I sincerely appreciate your comments on yesterday’s post! I am going to share details room by room as I know many have you have asked for sources. Let’s start with the dining room, one of my favorite spots in the house. Take a look at the before and after photos…
One of my best finds was this table at World Market. I had my eye on it up in Flagstaff but was waiting until the house was further along to purchase it (and hoping it would go on sale!). Well, I was at my local World Market one day and spotted it with a clearance sign on it (50% off!). There was a cosmetic issue with the current batch of this set and so they were clearing it out. However, all my store had was the floor sample and they wouldn’t sell it to me. I ended up being across town later in the day for something else and ironically drove by another World Market that I didn’t even know was there. I called in and asked if they had any of the Francine collection left and they had one table left….score! I ended up finding two of the matching chairs at the Flagstaff store and decided to mix in the bronze metal bucket chairs.
One of the hardest decisions I had to make was choosing a dining room light fixture. I was so stressed over it because it is such a focal point in the house. You can see it from the kitchen and the family room. It was hard to decide without seeing how the table would look in the space first. These were the four I was considering.
I decided on the Ballard Designs Eldridge Chandelier and absolutely love it!
I think the best idea we came up with for this remodel was opening up the kitchen and extending the breakfast bar. We basically had the wall removed and moved the refrigerator and cabinet to the adjacent wall. By doing this, we took out the random cabinet in the breakfast bar area, which was awkward anyway. We were able to create a nice, long breakfast bar and open the view to the kitchen from the family room and dining room. I’m so happy with the new layout!
