I LOVE THE DINING ROOM!
I used two different shades of grey, Glidden Olivewood on the walls and Glidden Grey Mountain on the ceiling.
I’m making some headway.I cannot wait to refinish these pocket doors and do a little repair work so they can slide like new again. That is about as close to closed as we can get them.
3. Remove baseboards (job for Nathan)
4. Paint ceiling a lighter version of wall (or darker possibly…hmm)
5. Paint walls a warm taupe-gray
6. Paint trim including the unistalled pieces. (We can touch them up after they are installed.)
7. Re-install window trim and put up new pine baseboards
8. Paint and install a ceiling medallion that surrounds the base of the light fixture.
9. Replace ceiling fan with an oil rubbed bronze/wrought iron fixture, that Nathan and I both like(there’s the challenge.)
10. Put up drapery rod in a matching finish to the light fixture…or possibly painted red…hmm
11. Find a large-scale pattern floor-length drapes for the window. I am leaning toward a neutral background with a blue ikat pattern.
12. Remove carpet and replace with an engineered hardwood.
13. Find a buffet with legs, no wider than 54″ wide.
14. I want RED! Either a red lamp on the the buffet or a red crackle painted buffet.
I received my new chandelier last week! It looks great and Nathan and I both like it and we scored a major deal on it. As it retails for $660. I purchased through a Joss & Main lighting event.

I plan to paint the existing door trim sometime soon, as well as ordering new window trim. I will need to paint the crown molding, window trim and the ceiling medallion. Then I will be ready to install the crown molding when the boys are done in the field. We are going to try and tackle the tricky business ourselves. Thanks to this tutorial from This Old House, we’re going to try this on our own. You can click on the picture to see the tutorial.
