Dining room progress

We are about 80% done with our dining room re-do!

We still need a new chandelier, artwork, and an area rug – but it’s coming along!  We installed new hardwood floors, board and batten wainscoting and added a grayish beige color to the walls.  I also made some curtain panels from some Waverly fabric that I love, and I feel like it really warms up the room.  I can’t wait for the accessories!

I will post a board and batten DIY tutorial soon – Brian did the whole thing and we snapped pictures of each step along the way.  We love how it turned out and really adds some character to the room!

So, without further delay, here are the latest snaps!






















And just a refresher, here’s where we started just a couple months ago…

We’ve come a long way with this room – more to come!
