It's in the center of my house, and I pass it dozens of times a day, and it needs so much love. But let's be honest, I've already got projects in the Playroom and in the Master Bedroom that are sitting half done. So in the mean time, just so when you look at this room you can see the same vision I do (although half baked and constantly changing), here's a few things I'd love to do with the Dining Room.... someday.
I'm not completely sold on this yet, but I think I would like to paint 1 main wall in the room (the one currently with the picture on it), with a fun horizontal pattern like this. It would solve my problem of the room being too boring with the cappuccino white paint, but not have to worry about the adjoining walls to the rest of the house that are painted in the same color.
Or maybe I could find some more interest, and help define this room as a more traditional Dining Room, with a board and batten wainscoting like this one. I could use your opinion on this one. I love the idea of wainscotting in the Dining Room, but I'm not sure it fits the Modern Lodge, one with nature vibe of the house. Thoughts?
This is fun, and rustic, and DIY. Plus it holds a whole lot of wine. It's like I'm 8 years old again, the first time I saw Zack Morris and his big phone on Saved by the Bell- love at first sight.
I love this natural, yet low maintenance centerpiece in a trifle dish, and envision 3 of them running down the center of the table. You know how whenever you see design images and the Dining Room table is always set? Yeah, who lives like that? Seriously? I think it's doing us all an injustice really, why not show us an image of how the table can look the other 361 days a year. I'm just saying...
