Dining area upgrade

Happy New year everyone! I have been dying to post details of our dining area upgrade which was ready just in time for Christmas lunch.I was so lucky to have won a R2500 voucher for canvex wallpaper from ExpandasignΒ by entering a competition on the SA Decor & Design blog (which is one of my favorite blogs BTW) which allowed us to get some wallpaper for two different areas within our home πŸ™‚

We also got around to arranging re-upholstery for some chairs which my husband bought about 2 years ago at a salvage store. He managed to get 8 chairs and a table which were fire damaged for about 300 bucks. This is what the chairs looked like before

With help from Melissa Louise and fabric from Zana, we knew the end result would be awesome and we were certainly not disappointed.

Thanks Melissa and the Zana girls – we love it!

When the wallpaper arrived we were a bit nervous about applying it to the wall ourselves but we were luckily helped out by the builder who done our renovations earlier this year. He however confirmed what Expandasign says – it’s really simple to apply! If you want some more detail on how to apply, give me a shout!

Anyway, this is how the area looks now.IMG_7523
