And now a little picture timeline of the room... enjoy!
This is before we even bought the house, but it's the only shot I have that shows the old wallpaper.
The room will be added on to over the next several weeks, as we hang pictures and hopefully receive the placemats we registered for. We may even add a buffet table in the corner that's currently in our garage, if it will fit (also courtesy of my grandparents). But none of this is big stuff, and it's nothing that will take more than 5 minutes to do, so I say the room is done! It feels so much bigger with the lighter colors, and it really is my favorite room in the house. Of course, Lisa pointed out that when we finish another room, that one will probably be my favorite... But for now, I love the dining room! It feels so nice to see that all of our hard work has paid off. Next up: office, guest room, master bedroom, bathrooms, living room, den and kitchen. Not too much more, right? :)
