Crazy Serial-Decorator Mom Updates Daughter's Dining Room

Recently our daughter moved into her first home.  She and I have many projects in the works, but none complete.  Of course we were able to pull things together somewhat and couldn't wait to share our progress.  We have a dining room sneak peek.  Oh you have no idea what else we're considering for this room.  So exciting.

She already had a round oak dining table that traveled from her apartment to her new home.  After we had the chairs, draperies, and rug in place, we decided to paint the table black.  Here's our before pic.

OAK TABLE BEFORE PAINT

With so much black in the room, the table had no choice but to accept our decision.  
 It was a very quick paint job for us.

BLACK TABLE AFTER

The draperies are from my kitchen.  The fabric is made by Schumacher and the draperies by moi.  What a lucky girl to have a crazy Mom serial decorator.  Yep there's always a change up around here.  The chairs were also inherited and I softened them up with some gray faux fur throws--also confiscated from Mom.

Not only does my daughter benefit from my constant decorating changes,  but she also gets dibs on my constantly changing store merchandise.  I carry many chandelier styles, but we thought that this wood and iron chandelier was perfect above the table.   You'll see a large canvas sea life wall art acting as a backdrop for the chandelier.  It fills the large empty wall and of course has a background in what else but---BLACK.

We filled the gap between the draperies and the corner with a Nate Berkus faux turtle shell.
It's our color compromise.  Notice that there actually is some yellow in the rug and art too.
We're not going totally Johnny Cash on you.

Please check back as my decorating partner, Sara, and I work our way around the house.

More sneak peeks on the way, promise.
