The Dining Room, WIP

The entire house is a work in progress, but here is an update on the dining room. The first picture is from our second visit to the house before we bought it. The dining room seems to have been being used as a bedroom. It, like every other room in the house, was painted peach and it had weird medical equipment screwed to the wall, an air conditioner decaying in the window and a truly ugly, gold colored ceiling fan.
Here is the house after we moved in our stuff. The Bodes helped us dislodge the whale sized air conditioner and I yanked the medical equipment off the wall but the bar is hiding the cables. We hung the drapes Mom made for Ross's old apartment so there is about a foot and a half of fabric hanging on the ground.

Here is the room as it looked yesterday morning. That's the new ceiling fan we bought over the weekend. I've removed the cables and patched up the walls. The trim has been painted white and I'm getting reading to put up our new wall colors. Our plan is to install a chair rail so I've taped off the room in two parts, upper and lower.

Here's the lower color, Garden Wall.

And here it is with the upper color, Sandstone Cove.

Next up; chair rail, rehang the drapes, hang some art, and then it will be the kitchen's turn!

Thanks! The red pops a lot more than it did before and I'm not sure yet if that is a good thing or not! But I love the wall color and I think the chair rail is gonna be really cool.

Kim your house is so beautiful and so rich looking. I love it! I'm also really impressed with your painting skills and door removing skills!
