It started with the chairs.

I spotted them in my neighbors trash sitting by the curb on a rainy day just as we were pulling out of the driveway. We were already late for preschool, so I figured what's another minute? :) I hopped out of the car, tucked a chair under each arm, and ran them into our garage to dry off.

After a quick trip to Target where I found the perfect fabric in the form of a curtain panel, I recovered the seats with my handy staple gun, gave the wood a good clean, and swapped them in the place of our old chairs, (which I had found the same way and painted mint green). 

Well wouldn't you know it, with the 'new chairs' in place my gold matted botanical gallery wall just didn't seem fitting and I was craving the white wall underneath! So down came the prints, and I hung my trusty book page wreath and antlers. 

And with the newly aired out room, I just needed some fresh clippings right from our backyard to call it a day.

And just like that, our dining room got a little makeunder. I've been enjoying simplicity lately. Perhaps it was the long winter and feeling so closed in, but I've been craving open, airy rooms. Our dining room is just that at the moment - it feels lighter, cleaner, brighter, and so very peaceful!

Now our industrial shelves really stand tall and proud! There's nothing competing with them - and why should there be?! They're such a fun statement! 

So not a drastic makeover, but refreshing nonetheless! Have you been changing up any rooms in your home? We'd love to see what you've been up to! Post your pictures right to our Facebook page or tag #stylemuttspaces on Instagram!
