House Project: Dining Room

Part of our Christmas present to ourselves this year was a new dining room. When we moved in, the dining room was painted a really dark red color that neither of us was fond of, and had a light fixture that we both hated.

We knew the color would be a nightmare to change, but we wanted to completely transform this room. After all, it's been sitting empty for over a year. Naturally, we started with primer...two coats of it. Turns out red is very hard to cover.

Then came our new light fixture. So much better than what was there before.

 We chose a nice clean blue to lighten up the room.

Then came a new rug, new furniture, and new art for the wall. We were so excited to get it all put together, and were very happy with the choices we made. It looks like a real adult dining room now instead of just empty space. For a while, I kept turning on the light and just looking at it all, not quite believing it was in my house. I've gotten used to it now, and really love it. It makes me look forward to working on other rooms of the house.
