Dining Room Makeover
We have been moving quite a bit for the past couple of years, and so I’m always busy renovating and decorating. But I love it, and it gives me a blank canvas every time. It’s just wonderful to experience different challenges in each place, we had tiny, big, country, city, … and trying different styles and colors every time. It’s even more wonderful, if other people like it too and when they like it so much, that they even want to print it in their magazine, that’s the coolest thing ever!
First off I painted the back wall of the room. Color used: Zumo de Papaya
The chairs around the table where a real bargain, I bought them for $10 a piece at a thrift store. They were really ugly, but after a coat of paint and new fabric, they now fit beautifully into the room. Tutorial here.
Long time ago, the dining table was black, then a couple of years ago I painted it white, following a tutorial here.
I don’t know if you have seen my Fancy Popsicles Post, if so, you probably already noticed my huge canvas on the wall! Yes, I fell in love with that picture and Hello Leinwand printed it for me on a 90x140cm canvas. I always thought, printing that big is quite expensive, but it turns out not!
And they were so nice to give a 15% discount to all Funkytime readers!

If you like to print the popsicle photo, you can get it here.
Of course I am hanging my folding chairs on the wall again, like in my old dining room
A new edition is Erika, my parents gave her to me for my birthday this year.
We have tiny balconies here, they hardly fit a table and a chair!
But I still managed to find space for some flowers, an umbrella (from here) and enjoy the beautiful view every morning!
Some things I like this week:
If I had another dining room to make over, I would definitely make this one! Great job Chelsey!
This is funky and totally genius!
My next DIY skirt?
Iam doing our vacation planning right now and was wondering if anyone ever been to Lagos (Portugal) or Cadiz (South of Spain)? I would love to get some feedback on both!
It’s really getting hot here, 38C yesterday (at night it only cooled down to 30C), so I am melting overhere!
