Dining Room Redo

I've been wanting to update our dining room for some time now, but time and money have slowed me down. This is what our dining room currently looks like - I haven't done much to it since we first moved in (5 1/2 short years ago) and it is needing a little attention to detail. Not to mention that it is a little too dark for my taste so I'm ready for a clean, fresh update.

So, what do you think about this for an update?

I made a run to Target yesterday - something that I try to not do that often because my will power isn't strong when it comes to fashion or home purchases. I've known for a while now that I wanted to paint the walls in Porter Paints Fern Glow, but I just haven't had the motivation to start. Until yesterday - when I found these gorgeous white and green damask plates. Ohh, I couldn't deny them entry into my dining room - immediately I loaded them into my cart.
Then, I found these amazing black lamps with cream drum shades marked down!!!!!!! Then I really couldn't say no.So, I'll plan to keep all of the large pieces currently in the room and just use some paint and accessories to transform the space! I'll share with you the final product once it is complete!

That is one of my very favorite color combinations. My kitchen is that hot green and we love it. I am trying to get a redo going on my dining room too so thanks for the inspiration.

I love that green. Can't wait to see the final. And, best of all, you are retaining most of the stuff and re-doing the room in a way that most people could afford to do.

I love your current room, but your new plans look amazing! Yep, I better stay away from Target now that I saw your great finds. Can't wait to see the finished room. Love that big sunny window too.
