dining room reveal … for real

Yes.  I’m finally sharing the dining room remodel …




I’m not sure what took so long.  Perhaps because I was futzing with some window panels.  Window panels that I finally scrapped …


and that “scrapping” involved hardware removal.  And caulking.  And sanding.  And painting.


Which should’ve been a breeze considering the hard work was already done.  The board and batten was installed and caulked and painted months ago …




… in the months before the infamous finger injury.  And surgery.  And ongoing physical therapy.



Perhaps I was waiting for the living room to be completed too …


Since the board and batten wall treatment and Naval Sherwin Williams paint and awesome navy and white striped rug would be repeated in the living room too …




… just beyond the arch.

I feel like they go together.  A mix and match set.



Like Garanimals …



But I can’t wait any longer.  So here it is.





For now.


And here it was …



… before.

P.S.  That leaded glass window is a fake.  You can see how I made it myself clicking here …

    Hii! Saw your lovely remodel in This old House magazine. Could you tell me where you purchased your dining room chandelier? Thanks!

    Absolutely beautiful, how did you know that window would look way better with the woodwork built up all around. It looks like a different room!!
