The new Blount dining room is open to the kitchen and living room after Chip and Joanna demolished walls and brightened the space with lighter paint and french doors to the expansive backyard, as seen on Fixer Upper.
A brown metal dining table and chairs accessorizes this classic porch area. Red brick flooring and a painted wood ceiling with ceiling fans roots this porch in a traditional design. Large white columns and French doors create a dramatic entry.
French doors were removed to open this dining room up to the living room, creating an airy, open concept feel. The dining room is painted in a beautiful subdued blue, drawing the focus of the room to the darker dining table and chandelier.
Painting the door frame of these French doors black calls attention to their beautiful arched shape, especially given the stark contrast against the white paneled walls, as seen on HGTV's Restored by the Fords.
Throughout the kitchen and living room, exposed beams and molding, which had been dark stained wood, were painted white to help give the overall space a lighter and more open feel. New recessed lighting and upgraded French doors bring tons of light into the space.
Erin and Ben agreed with the homeowners that the home would be better served by restoring the original porch. The French doors get updated for proper function and are painted ox-blood on the exterior side to match the front door, and white on the inside in keeping with the interior trim.
