The Dining Room (Sideboard)...

As you may know, over the last few months I've been giving my living and dining rooms a brand new look. I was busy photographing the rooms last weekend for this post, which was supposed to be the big Living and Dining Room Reveal. However, when I looked back at them, I realised that although I'm really very happy with the rooms, that I wasn't actually ready to show them off just yet, as there are too many things that still need to be done (like painting the floors for one. Urgh.), and I'm not happy to show the world, well, okay, maybe not the world, but you know what I mean, until everything is looking a bit more finished.

I think it's going to be at least another few weeks before I post the proper reveal, but I took loads of shots of the sideboard in the dining room, which is really long, and I've always struggled with styling it. I finally got it to a point where I'm happy with it, so there's no way I'm not going to show you these photos!

The sideboard is made up of five wall mounted Ikea kitchen cabinets, with a bespoke sprayed to match piece of MDF for the top. Fantastic to house everything from the kids games, to craft supplies, and who know what else. I'd love to replace the top with with marble one day, though even if I had the budget, I'd be worried the weight of it would pull the cabinets off the wall.

So here you go, a detailed look at the dining room sideboard. Of course you can see peeks of the rest of the room and the beautiful Pink Ground walls, which I am completely besotted with. As soon as I can, I will show you the whole dining room and the living room, which has changed SO much from it's navy blue days...

  1. Gahhhh I LOVE IT. That pink colour is just the freaking bomb. I so wish Wayne would let me paint our dining room is that colour but I know I'd REALLY be pushing my luck. I'm also jealous of how light and bright your dining room is (mine is a cave, it's always so dark in there except in the middle of summer although I'm now thinking of going with a light colour regardless - it's probably Seasonal Affective Disorder pushing me to that idea). The shelf styling is wonderful - have you considered using contact paper in marble for the top? It's a pretty damn good replica - I used it in my dressing room and it's still holding up amazingly well and it's super easy to keep clean which always helps! Oh and your mum is a STUNNER - my goodness. Was she a model? (If not, she certainly could have been) ;) xxx

  2. Aw thank you! I don't know how I managed to talk my husband into it, but he kind of just 'gets' this colour. Photoshop is my best friend by the way, it's not quite as bright as it may seem! X
