  1. Great job! So nice that you followed the shape of your alcove and made the sitting area deep enough. Thanks for sharing

    When building the bench for the dining nook, were there any electrical outlets that were covered? What did you use to safely block them?

  3. Hi, i love the work done!! Amazing! Do you have any board or support in front or against the windows, to protect them for when people are sitting at the table/ in the nook?

  4. This makeover looks amazing! I found this post when looking for a solution for off center lighting. Did this light come with a longer wire or did you have to add something to make it long enough to reach the center of the table?

  5. I can’t even believe this is the same space… and that your bench is am addition- it looks like a built-in. You guys nailed it, love!!! And that wallpaper is PERFECT, girl!

    1. Aw, thanks! We LOVE it!

  6. I lovethat you used such a bold wallpaper. I love colour and the walls as well as your beautiful kitchen cupboards are dreamy!

  7. The makeover is just fantastic, I like the Mobile Chandelier especially. Cool.

  8. This is fun! I have a special place in my heart for small spaces 🙂 The wallpaper turned out lovely, too. Well done guys!

  9. This turned out so pretty, good job;) And I hear you on the pillow choices, it’s so hard to get the combination just right!

    1. Thank you! And yes, pillows are always tough!

  10. Amanda! You did a beautiful job!! I’m in love with that wallpaper and all of your colourful accessories. Beautifully designed my friend!

    1. thank you so much, Cassie!

  11. Y’all always knock it out of the park and this makeover is now different. Way to go! Your dining room is beautiful! Love the banquette and your color choices. Well done!

    1. You’re too kind! Thanks so much!

    Lovely “new” room great job! The table runner, where did you find that? Thanks.

    1. Thanks so much! The runner is from Target a couple of seasons back – it’s not available on their website anymore, but here’s a similar option!

  13. That wallpaper is gorgeous! This is such a cozy and inviting space! It would be my favorite too. Congrats!!

    1. Thank you so much, Jess!!! Wish I could invite everyone over for dinner! 😉

  14. What a beautiful dining space!!! I’m in love with the wallpaper and lighting and think they were both well worth the splurge. I’m super impressed with the built-in seating you two built! Also, those new open shelves are going to be so fun to style throughout the year! Your table setting looks so fun too – love all the color. Awesome job!

    1. Thanks so much, Emily!! We’re REALLY enjoying the space so far!!

    The wallpaper is AMAZING!! I am now trying to convince my husband that our dining room needs a banquette! It would be perfect to go along with the dining room table I’ve inherited from my mother! I can’t wait to show him these pictures so he can visualize. Our dining room is a very similar space to yours.

    1. You’ll have to let me know if you try to tackle it! It’s totally worth the effort! 🙂

  16. This is incredible!!! I seriously need that light in my life and the wallpaper is stunning! Great job!!! Totally motivating me to makeover our dining room next.

  17. Think chair backs are too high

    1. They’re definitely a bit taller than normal, but they’re extremely comfortable, which makes them perfect for long dinners with family! So, I don’t mind the added height! 🙂

    2. Love the makeover! All looks beautiful. I do agree I the chair backs though. It takes away from the table and wallpaper – as it blocks the view! I’d actually love to see a picture of the dining room with no chairs.

      1. Thanks! And I think it’s hard to tell in photos, but in person the chairs don’t really block the view at all. And I don’t mind the high backs – it makes them incredibly cozy to sit in!
