It’s day two of my house tour: dining room day. I know, don’t faint from excitement 🙂 Funny enough, this is one of the smallest rooms in the house but has one of the longest (or at least heaviest) to-do lists. We got big plans for this space!
In the picture, I’m standing in the living room. There’s a door to the garage on the left and a doorway to the kitchen on the right, but we’ll get to those later this week 😉 Here’s how it looked on day 1:
Luckily, it didn’t really need any work…we just had some personal wants for improvements. Here it is in today:
So, not much has changed today except a nice round table for better flow and some extremely comfy, stitched parsons chairs. Oh, and my Derek mannequin! When my brother moved out to Utah, he brought me a dressed mannequin with a photo of his face taped onto its head. It tends to scare visitors but I love him 🙂
It’s nice and bright…but fairly small. And size wouldn’t be a challenge except that there are doors on three of its four walls. And the pièce de résistance is actually our plan to add French doors to the only (currently) door-free wall. Here’s the to-do list:
- Knock out the window and put in French doors
- Five- to six-foot board & batten wall treatment (inspiration/tutorial from My Home My Style magazine)
- Storage furniture
That’s a wrap for today. Hope you enjoyed the dining room show and tell. Tomorrow, the kitchen. Thanks for dropping in! Did you try anything new today? Do you have any plans or a wish list for your dining room?
