If you have been following along for awhile, you know that I travel back to North Carolina frequently to see my family. And usually while I am home, I am put to work! My mom has wanted to update her paint colors as well as her home for some time now! She has the ultimate southern home... and everyone that sees it, loves it! She loves a red dining room and has since I can remember but this is not the largest of rooms thus why we choose a soft grey pallet for the paint colors.
At the beginning of 2013, I surprised her by painting the dining room and restyling it with everything that she already had! We only had to pay for the paint! So, a dining makeover for roughly $30... I'll take it! It was very pretty for spending $0 on decor but we both felt like it was lacking some character and more than that, some details that are in the rest of the home.
Enter me coming home to visit for a second time in 2013 and we painted an old gold antique mirror of my grandmothers a high gloss black for an ultimate contrast against the cool grey walls. We added antique claw foot lamps from my great uncles old interior design store in Wilmington, NC. Originally brass bases and everything and they really compliment the mirror in my opinion.
So, what do y'all think?
