Dining Room Makeover

I'm so obsessed with blues right now that it's not even funny.  I painted a gazillion walls and furniture pieces with it.  Today I'm showing a dining room revamp done in the famous turquoise blue.  All items purchased used in this space are in some form or fashion thrifted.
Before: The fridge of course doesn't belong in this room.  However, it was spray painted black and put in the kitchen using 2 cans of appliance spray paint. Dresser in the middle of the floor was also repainted using oops paint in a yellow and placed in the bedroom.  The 1st makeover can be seen here and the 2nd makeover here.
Dining Room After
The table (thrifted @ $25) and buffet (@ $24) was repainted with oops paint.  I mixed several different grays together along with some white paint to get the wall color (I do this often.)  It was also used on the table as well.  The chairs I previously owned. To change them up a bit they were recovered with white sheets purchased from a thrift store at a $1 each.
Table and Buffet Before
Oops paint purchased from Habitat for Humanity Resale store $3 and $2 stencil purchased from Hobby Lobby.
The drapes were hand me downs from a friend who really didn't like the vibrant color (yeah me!)  The wall decor above the buffet is a mixture of 2 different star burst mirrors.  Two of them were purchased at the Dollar Store for $10 bucks each.  The other two I made from items purchased at the Dollar Tree.  You can find that story here.
As far as the other accessories in the room I either already owned them or I purchased them at thrift store as well.  Now I know you're wondering about that chandelier.  Well No it didn't come from a thrift store but it was a Christmas gift from my friend Christina Johnson several years ago (you can check her out coming soon on Hollywood Exes).  It originally came from West Elm!

Well are you overly obsessed with a color?
