There are so many wonderful things that I envision for our home. While we have come a long way, there are still so many lovely things we’d like to do. Okay…. I’d like to do them. Ryan would be perfectly content living in this home, the way it is, until we croak.
But, just because Ryan had August – December off from major house projects doesn’t mean that I haven’t been thinking about it and planning for the next stages…. in 2009 and into the future.
Much to my husband’s dismay.
At some point, he’ll get tired of Grand Theft Auto and Madden 09 anyhow… right??? I just want to be ready for that moment.
So, I’ve decided to share and visually create the visions that have been dancing in my head. Mostly, for my own enjoyment.
Dining Room by newlywoodwards
I really love the wall color and curtains in the dining room, so I’d just like to add some things to enhance the beauty of the room.
– Install white chair rail and wainscoting below it. (Ryan is THRILLED about this one.)
– Add white crown molding. (Also Ryan’s dream come true.)
– Re-think our dining room set. This could mean getting my dream dining room set (sigh….) or painting the existing table, chair and hutch black (ala Emily).
– Mount shelves in the Dining Room – 2-3 on each side of the window.
Here are Katie’s beauties.
I love the style of these shelves. Don’t her plates look divine there? After I stopped drooling, I decided that I needed these shelves in our own dining room. Ryan is convinced that he can make something similar, so we’ll see.
What do you think of my dining room inspiration?
