Dining Room Progress

Hello All!

Here is another progress update for you.  As I worked on the first part of my buffet/hutch makeover (you can take a look for that here), I figured that I would share the progress made thus far in our dining room.

Let's first start by taking a look back at some before photos:




Shudder...and now let's take a look at the progress so far:











Some of the updates that we have made so far:


  • Remove mustard yellow shag carpet 
  • Remove cedar paneling
  • Remove mirrors that were glued to the wall 
  • Re-drywall the wall that had the cedar paneling and mirrors glued to it
  • Put a window in the wall separating the dining room from the kitchen
  • Replace blinds with sheer curtains
  • Remove stipple from the ceiling
  • Paint walls and ceiling
  • Install new flooring

Some of the tasks left on our to do list for this room:

  • Baseboards (actually, none of our rooms have baseboards on the main floor-we will pretend for the time being that the bright red tuck tape lining the bottom of our floors are baseboards).
  • Crown molding
  • New light fixture (the new light fixture currently displayed in the dining room is actually for the breakfast nook)
  • Re-stain the top of the oak table and paint its base white
  • Paint chairs and recover (the fabric that I'm spying currently is Robert Allan's Lattice in Ebony and White; below)


Still a lot of work ahead, but it's starting to come together!
