I'm so happy with how my dining room is coming together...
|B E F O R E|
The room was bright yellow when I moved in and one wall was unfinished wood panelling - at least it was real wood!! I painted the room in BM Stone House, panelling and all, and I like the coffee cream look. I'd like to install some crown molding also but need a few lessons on how to mitre corners before I take that monster on...
There were no window treatments to speak of in this room and as it is a corner room facing East and South, it gets a LOT of light and heat through its little old windows. I bought Ikea curtain rods and dark brown velvet drapes - a real bargain at $100 per window for both the rod and drapes.
It's also a very small room, only 9' x 12' with a door and a closet (it was the original master bedroom) and I didn't want to overcrowd it with furniture. I took the door off & plan to use it as the new door for my bathroom (reno in progress). That made the room seem huge. I also have an electric wood stove heater, a small sofa table and 2 extra chairs as well as the table & chairs. I didn't add a rug because I think keeping the floor bare makes the room look much larger.
