I have written very little about our dining room, but that’s about to change! With the rest of the downstairs almost complete and the holidays quickly approaching (yay – entertaining!) it’s high time we did something about our dining room.
To be honest, the room didn’t need much. We already re-finished the floors and painted the walls – so all that remained was detail work. A few weeks ago I brought my contractor back in to build me some beautiful wine shelves along the back wall, which was otherwise empty and kind of ominous with no windows. Now that those are complete (yay!) we are focusing on fixing the built-in cupboard and sanding down/re-painting trim and crown molding around the room. After that, we’ll just need to add my lantern light fixture, furniture, and we’re ready to go.
The main challenge in this room will be pulling it all together in just a few weeks. I have ignored my Dining Room Pinterest board for months now, but earlier today I revisited and updated my ideas. It seemed like the best place to start! Here are a few pins that really made an impression…
So here’s to doing an entire room in just a few weeks. Thank goodness for inspiration around the web!
