The space with the least vision is the dining room. Although other areas are equally less done, I at least feel I have a vision for where I hope to take them.
A dining room’s furnishings are more pre-determined than other rooms, so while of course I will refinish the table and find better chairs I am left feeling like “…and then what?” What will give this room a quirk, touch of whimsy, or some soul to it?
What I have so far is painting the ceiling a surprising color and adding a medallion around the chandelier. From there, I will try and let a cool piece art piece at an antique store or a surprising fabric for a window treatment jump out at me to give this space something special.
- Paint ceiling
- Install chandelier medallion
- Window treatments
Lay wood floors
- Art & accessories (per yesterday, do I want a rug?)
- Refurbish table
Replace chandelier bulbs
- Find eight chairs
If anything, I may have this room be a touch of folksy. It has to be comfortable. And inviting. And casual to a degree. We are, after all, trying to be conducive to long family and friends chats around the table.
