My dining room is done!!! I love how it turned out. I am going to start with my favorite part (the ceiling) and then work my way around the room.
I have wanted to paint checkers on my ceiling since before we moved into this house! Six years to be exact. I had the idea and I had to wait until we moved here. Then I don’t know what happened. But I just never got it done. Painting a ceiling was not very high on a list that included electrical, floors, grass, etc. It ranked pretty low since it wasn’t a need. We even started this project a couple of times over the years but always got interrupted. I will admit I had a few strips of tape on my ceiling for. . . ummmm. . . 2 years. But it is done now and that is all that matters :)
I took these shots in the morning when the sun was very bright and very orange. I had to edit the crap out of them and they are not crystal clear, but I think they are good enough to show you what it looks like.
This clock I have posted about before. I originally built it to cover up a meter box in our apartment when we lived in Vegas. It stuck out of the wall a good 10 inches so I cut a bunch of it off with my jigsaw.
I love my polka dot curtains!!! I needed to add more dark brown and the dots were playful. I think they are fun. I originally bought some paisley fabric but it seemed too…..serious, for lack of a better word.
Remember all those things I bought on clearance??? Well here most of them are! The tea cup became a pot for the plant, the candle holder got painted and distressed, and the hanging votive got turned upside down. I forgot to put the candle on the tall brown candle holder. I would like to find a silver one to go next to it also. One day :)
I can’t WAIT to show you the other half of this room. . . THE KITCHEN! I am hoping I have a good week and can finish the rest of the kitchen so I can reveal it next Monday. That is the goal. We will see!
