Before and After Again: The Dining Room
It’s that time again: some before and after shots of my baby (by which I mean my house of course… pshhttt. Babies.)
The open floor plan was one of the main things that sold me on my house, but here are a few shots devoted specifically to the dining room.
Here is the dining room on the day I moved in, in all of its carpeted glory.
My parents helped me get rid of the dropped ceiling, the carpet and the cute-but-fake Styrofoam “chimney”
Staring into the abyss…
The wood floor beneath the carpet was painted two different colors.
I painted the walls light great and added lighting fixtures.
Against everyone’s better judgement, I painted the floors because I didn’t have the time or funds to refinish them properly
And, to further compound things, I decided on a light, sandy color
It was worth it in the end
Complete with my not-quite-French door(s) to the patio, installed just days before my housewarming
