Who Wants To Dine In This Room?

We have been back from Hawaii for two weeks now, classes are back in session and most post-vacation tasks have been completed – time to start a project around the house! Before the holiday break we did some painting updates to the dining room, but we didn’t get time to finish, now with the cold weather and looming snow, I have plenty of time. The dining room is somewhat open to the living room and kitchen so we made sure that the paint flows through the rooms and we want to make sure that the flooring flows and that the window treatments coordinate. On the to-do list for this room include painting and updating the built-in (the original built-in had glass doors YUCK, we already removed them), painting all the wainscoting, painting the trim on the slider door, installing new window treatments, updating the beams on the ceiling and at some point putting down new flooring. I am really looking forward to getting this room done, we have already had some friends and family get-togethers and it would be much more pleasant to have a finished dining room to eat in. Plus, once we get the dining room off the list we can move on to the dreaded kitchen…
