We’re moving right along with our dining room reno. Now that the big things are done (painting, crown molding, and wainscoting) it’s been fun picking and choosing accessories to pull it all together. At first when we painted the walls I worried the blue-gray would feel too cold, but once we added some warm accessories and textures I think it cozied it up nicely.
So you can see where it started, this is what the dining room looked like when we bought the house.
Quite a change right?
So far we have painted the walls Benjamin Moore Iced Marble, installed crown molding, installed faux wainscoting, changed out the light fixture, got a table and chairs, and spruced it up with some accessories.
It wouldn’t be a room reno for us without something coming from Craigslist. Can you guess what it is?? I’ll give you a hint…it’s wood and functional and stained all over.
That would be our table and chairs. We actually got four of the chairs from one seller and the table from a different seller. Both were originally from World Market.
