If there is one room in our new home that I’m excited about it is the dining room. I’m just so excited to start working on it.
It is going to be the room we enjoy wonderful Sunday roasts, being thankful and also celebrate Christmas dinner. I can picture such wonderful family dinners in there.
I wonder, can you hear the excitement in my typing?!?
This is how the room is looking right now:
Please don’t mind the train tracks on the floor! Conor and I are just keeping it real for you! You may remember this room empty on our house tour. I love the dark wood in this home. It was milled in Maine in 1927 when the home was built. I love how these columns frame the room. As you can see LOTS to do in here!
We’re planning on lightening the walls with Benjamin Moore Mascarpone. Right now the walls are Benjamin Moore Summer Harvest. I would like the moulding and woodwork to pop out more.
I love how the warm wood looks against the white and also love the chandelier in this home:
So rich and elegant. I don’t think I could get away with such a large chandelier, but love the look!
After the walls are painted, I hope to find a gorgeous chandelier (old world looking with crystal and brass) and refinish our dining room set.
