Updating great room kitchen-living-dining room combo to all neutrals

I started by adding two Ikea dinning chairs to the ends of our already exciting Eyhan Allen dinning room set ! We needed two more chairs because we have a large family and the compliment our white couch and white kitchen cabinets perfectly! What a deal! Similar ones sell at pottery barn for much more money ! 

Next we finally but in a window behind our dining room table! We have lived in this house almost 7 years and it has been on our to-do list! 

We bought white curtains for both sides of the window and both sides of the sliding door. From Ikea for around $30 a pair! That's 2 panels for $30!!! Unbelievable price ! We spent almost  $300 on pottery barn curtains behind out couch! Yikes! Never again!!! 

Next I swapped out the yellow rug, pillows and accessories for all neutral beige , whites and taupes. Pillows from Serena and Lily ( a little on the pricy side but sooooo worth it!) and the smaller cream and white from pottery barn and etsy respectively. 
My father is helping refinish a beautiful piece of furniture in white for under our mirror! We had been using an old desk from target for the time wing but it always bothered me! I can't wait to see it finished! 
Here is a picture of the desk/table we have now 
Here is a before picture of the beautiful buffet my father is helping me refinish in white ! Can't wait ! 
Finally I just purchased a beautiful chunky loop jute rug in bleach from rugs usa! They are having a 60% off sale! Use code Sum60! I'm so excited can't wait to see it!!! 
Finally my to-do list will conclude with some bookshelfs  , lamps and accessories but that may happen a little later! Stay tuned for a room reveal coming soon!!!
