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 here …

P.P.S.  To install the board and batten wall treatment, I followed a tutorial that you can find here …
