Over the weekend I asked you all on Facebook what you thought I should do with my dining room. You all had some wonderful ideas and I think I’m ready to wipe this badly needed room makeover off my to-do list! (Miss the convo on Facebook? Hop over to join us!)
The problems with the dining room are plentiful (other than the fact that I never actually decorated it once we moved in!)
- The rug is too traditional for my taste
- The table is lost in all the dark colors
- No window treatments
- Nothing on the walls
- Blah-blah beige walls
So here is the plan:
I am going to add decorative picture frame molding to the area under the chair rail and paint it white.
The area over the chair rail and the tray ceiling will be painted a color to be determined-I’m thinking a darker blue-gray like Beth’s dining room over at Unskinny Boppy.
I’ll add curtains to the large window and definitely get some art up on those bare walls!
I need to find a more modern rug in lighter colors.
The big kicker will be painting the dining room table and chairs. I think I’m going to keep the wood top and paint the legs the same Alaskan Husky color I used in my bedroom makeover and nightstand makeover.
Whew, I’m exhausted just reading that list but very excited to get started. I think I’m going to take it on next week and I will keep you updated! As for the rest of this week I have some great upcycled/repurposed projects to show you so stop back by tomorrow!
Thanks for stopping by!
