The First Six Months: Dining Room

Our dining room is thisclose to being done. Yes, we still have a newspaper cutout on the wall representing "future vertical art." Yes, that newspaper happens to feature the Norway massacre, which is a most unfortunate coincidence. But we have a plan! And ironically, it doesn't even involve vertical art. More on that later. We have our completed set of butterfly maps up over our bar, un-saran-wrapped dining chairs that our cats are tentatively ignoring, a gallery of old family photos, and those great windows. Our big To Do in this room is removing the awful recessed lighting and hanging a chandelier. All in time.

Dining Room, Done
  • Painted
  • New table and chairs
Dining Room, To Do
  • Remove recessed lighting
  • Buy and hang chandelier
  • Finalize art - no more Norway massacre on the wall! (I know, I should've taken this down forever ago... but my visual brain would rather see newspaper than "blank." And apparently I don't notice the details enough to hang up a happy front page.)
  • Install crown moulding
Dining Room Paint
  • Primary Color: Benjamin Moore Olive Branch, color-matched to no-VOC Mythic Paint
  • Staircase Wall: Behr A Dozen Roses
  • Trim: Mythic Bright White

Note: For this week's First Six Month Series, I'm using the realtor photos that advertised our house as the "Move-in" photo, and my own images for "6 months later."
