I can clearly see a pattern here, I do major room makeovers in December, to be honest it’s far much easier and cheaper due to all the black Friday and Christmas Sales. After my bedroom Makeover I couldn’t wait to work on another room. I thought I wold do my living room but decided to start with the dining room.

Decorating the dining room was fun and a little bit more complicated than the Bedroom. There were so many elements and sections to deal with and this time I played with colour. I wanted something vibrant and fun for the dining. My daughter Zosi was my main inspiration since she loves colour, I want to create memories here that she will always remember.

For my walls I used Crown Paints Silk Emulsion in White and for my doors and wardrobes I used Crown Paints Gloss in White. My Fundi Pascal always comes through (0723205073) I’ve listed where I got everything an estimate of the price (If I can’t remember). 







The table I got from Odds and Ends after the one I wanted sold out. The feel is the same however the look is different. When I got my furniture there was a 30% off sale at the store.

    Hey Nancie! Thanks so much for this; I've actually been looking for the green runner design for a long time and I'm glad you shared how you turned the garland into one. Which Naivas branch specifically did you get the garland from? Please advise.

    Hey Nancie, Happy New Year and compliments of the New Year to you and your family. Is the black chair comfortable? What material is it made of? Thanks
