Dining Room

I don't know if I could have eaten in this dining room like it was originally. This room was filled to the brim with STUFF! And check out that picture of Joe - he looks so young!! Sorry back to the room. This room had the pine paneling just like the kitchen, which I felt had to go.

And another view. (that's our real estate agent) Check out the dishwasher that had to be rolled over to the sink to be used. Wowzers!

Okay that's enough of that - now on to the present...

I love the corner cabinet, it was a hand me down from my Dad's side of the family. The bowed front adds a classic and clean lines. I am working on a new look for the table and chairs. Another hand me down from family. A project to come, we'll discuss that more later!

In this shot you can see how the dining room and kitchen connect.

We don't use this space as often as we should. Definitely for dinner parties and such but we end up eating dinner in front of the good ol' TV.
Here's what I want to work on in this room:

New light fixture - I've been eyeing some drum fixtures or maybe this cool one from West Elm?

New window treatments - just simple panels

Re-vamp chairs and table - the new chairs have a bamboo look to them straight out of the 70's
This is a real close example of what they look like:

I think they'll be totally retro cool with a fresh coat of paint. What color paint is still out for discussion... Any projects on the horizon for you? Isn't there always something on the list. What would we do without a list? (Probably make our husbands happier!)

  1. Your dining room looks great! The color is so bold, but you really pull it off. I love the white cabinets in the kitchen. Great job.


I can't hear you!! Unless you leave a message. Holler back now!
