The Dining Room Makeover Has Begun

Hey guys!

You might remember, at the beginning of this year, I set some home decor “goals.”  The most important kind of goals, of course.  ;)

One of them was to makeover our often unused dining room in to a fun and functional space that fits our family.  And our modern farmhouse style.

I started with the vintage copper bar cart fashioned out of a free corner shelf unit.

Then Purdy called, and asked if I’d like to try some of their new painting tools.  Umm, yes.  Here…twist my arm…

When these goodies arrived, I decided now was the perfect time to lighten up the dining room walls.

Along with the roller covers (definitely my new fave, with a nice smooth finish and no drips), a professional grade roller (awesome) and several paint brushes (I’ve always been a a fan); I received this 4-8 foot lifesaver.

The telescoping power lock pole clicks easily on to the roller and makes reaching 9 foot  ceilings and 3 inch baseboards easy.

So let’s get back to the dining room.

Here’s a before shot of the dining room, from this week’s scrap wood table runner post.  As much as I liked the sandy beige color, I decided I was ready to try white walls, and stop just drooling over them in magazines.

I chose Swiss Coffee, from Home Depot, which is a warm white, and exactly what I wanted.

It’s not a dramatic change, but it’s so light and bright and wonderful.  (to read more about the chandlier, click here)

I still need to paint the trim and crown molding.  And I have some fun plans for that back wall.

And I want the engineer to make me a wood frame for the chalkboard.

The Dining Room Makeover To Do list just keeps growing.  I’ll keep you posted as we check things off!  :)
