Dining Room: Before & After

Above, our dining room chandelier is all dressed up and ready for the Easter Bunny to come. That chandelier makes me swoon. It was a gift from my groom on our first wedding anniversary and I will always love it. He got it here. That poor chandelier hung in our dining room for four years until we finally made up our minds about how to decorate the room. And here are the results. But first, I have to show you the "before" picture. Yikes. Those drapes made us so sad, I think we took them down the day after we moved in. And that fright of a chandelier that you see below was passed up by everyone in every garage sale we've ever had and we finally threw it away!

And here it is after:

LOVE your new dining room, the geometric pattern works so well in there and I love the colors-is it like a slate blue and silver? The chairs are awesome and look so comfy for a dinner party!
