**Etsy Makeover Event** Part 1 Dining Room

Finally, here we are with the dining room before and after pictures. NOW...don't judge me! Yes, I lived in this house for 13 months before I did anything with this dining room. We don't normally eat in there anywho, so that was another excuse. The giveaways will go live tomorrow.  Click to read the whole review....

Yep...thats my dining room. I have no centerpiece, no curtains, no wall decor. My poor dining room. I do however have electricity in the light fixture above my new table. I also have place mats and napkins with napkin holders. All of this for a table we don't really eat at looks okay to me. Lets move on...

This photos elongates the room and just makes it look even worse, but hey look...I have a rug under the table to add some dimension and decor to the room......on the floor! :)

Can you tell what we added to this room besides the highchair in the corner?! I got a centerpiece, but whats running down the table that wasn't there before? A beautiful table runner that matches my burnt orange placemats and napkins PERFECTLY, a pair of beautifully crafted burlap and creamy ruffle curtains with a matching valance, and a sign deep in the back of the room that reads "Masterpieces" with my daughters beautiful art work underneath. 
Closer Look :-)

Now moving on to get into a bit more detail for my sponsors and all the decor that helped spruce up my dining room.

Exclusive Elements sent me this beautiful burnt orange damask runner to help decorate my table. I have never had a runner so I was a bit confused on what length I needed or how they came. Stephanie is the owner and she helped me out tremendously. She was sooo nice. I told her the color of my table and my placements and napkins and she told me she had a similar color runner. I told her how long my table was and she suggested the runner length/size. The fabric is thick and nice quality. The stitching and seams are super straight, I was very impressed. I highly encourage you to check out her etsy shop HERE. They have all kinds of different things they offer like monogrammed aisle runners, parasols, regular aisle runners, custom runners, table runners, table squares, napkins, curtains, and more! The fabric selection they have is extensive and the trendiest patterns. Over 2,000 admirers, over 3,500 sales, and almost 700 positive reviews on Etsy, this is absolutely a company you can trust. If you shall find yourself needing something comparable to these things mentioned, please check out Exclusive Elements and tell Stephanie that Coupon Swag sent you!

Next up from our sponsors is the Old Barn Rescue Company. They do vinyl lettering that sticks to the wall, well, most walls. My walls are mostly textured plaster in my house, so when I opted to do this review, I already had a wonderful plan for the letters. I know a lot of people place these straight to the wall, and it looks great! However, for some added texture, and necessity for my walls sake, I got a board from Lowes and had them cut it to the size I needed. I brought it home and spray painted the board an antique white color. Once the board was dry, I had my husband install some things on the back that help it hang on the wall? Yep...dont know what those are called, but he did install them well, because its still hanging. 

Along with the vinyl letters, they sent me a paper with instructions. They even have a youtube video, but I didnt even need the video. It was so simple to transfer the letters to the board. I think it may have been a bit more difficult if I were transferring it to a wall, so I absolutely suggest using a board even if you have flat walls. It adds dimension and more decor. If you have a moment, please go check them out HERE. They literally have TONS of vinyl wall decals for everything and every room you could think of. I'm sure they could do some custom work if you needed it as well. The owners are super nice, just shoot them over a message and tell them that Coupon Swag sent you over. With almost 9,000 sales, over 1,800 positive reviews, and 7,347 admirers you can trust this is a awesome company to buy from! Their etsy shop is really easy to navigate through the different categories, check it out!!

Last, but not least, are these lovely burlap ruffle curtains. Burlap is like the trendy thing nowadays. You can do so much with burlap, and now thanks to Simply French Market, you can now have some trendy and sassy looking curtains. I love the unique look of these curtains, which is why I approached Simply French Market to do a review. I have never seen curtains like this before, and I think the ruffle involved puts these over the top! They seem rustic in a trendy and contemporary way. Terri was so nice to send me the curtains with a cream ruffle AND the matching valance also! I have never had curtains along with a valance before but Terri was so nice and helped me out and told me what kind of rod to get, a standout rod. She explained it to me, and she sent these out SUPER fast! Other than burlap curtains the has so much more in her Etsy shop. She sells pillows, shower curtains, burlap prints, curtains, candle wraps, valances, stockings, wine bags, and more. Simply French Market has almost 1800 positive reviews, almost 7,500 sales,  and 5,800 admirers. You should check them out, they have some awesome stuff that would be GREAT for gifts!
