So we’ve decided to start in the dining room. This room was actually a playroom for the previous owner. I think we need to add some architectural detail to dress it up and make it feel more like a dining room rather than just a rectangular box! This is a shot from our walk through before the previous owners moved out.
And this is where we are today:
So really all we have done is add some drapes and move in our furniture. That’s it. And golly does it need some help! Eek. Seeing it in pictures makes it even more obvious. Focus Katy, focus.
GOOD NEWS! I have a plan!
I still love the drapes so those will be our inspiration.
I want to add some architectural interest in the room so we plan on adding Board and Batten trim work along with some crown molding. We will paint that white and add some yummy rich color above. I am really loving BM – Templeton Gray.
Here are some examples of nice crisp white B&B with deep color above.
The ceiling fan needs to go ASAP and I love this fixture from Young House Love via Shades of Light. Simple with a fun industrial feel. And the price you can’t beat! $89 for the fixture and you can use YHL discount code and get 10% off. Yes please.
The plan for the chairs are taking the vintage bamboo chairs from Joe’s mom and painting them. I’ve talked about that for years now but we are going to make that happen! They are similar to these and I’m thinking BM Castleton Mist would be perfect.
this rug from World Market with some great texture would be perfect.
So that’s the plan… Hoping to get the carpet up in the next week or so and get to work on the walls! Here’s hoping that can happen with a little 8 1/2 month old crawling around!
