Our Dining Room Today ...

Happy Thursday, friends!

In a past post, I shared our dining room and mentioned how we never eat dinner in here, and that we needed to change that.  Well, guess what (?!) ... we still have yet to change that!  Poor room.

I "did," however, change a few things ... 

like the paint color.  We had it painted Sherwin Williams' Perfect Greige before we moved in ... but then, recently, I decided to lighten it up and paint it Ben Moore's Manchester Tan like the rest of the rooms on our main floor.

Over on our buffet, which used to have more of a cream distressed look, I added a couple of coats of Ben Moore's White Dove.  I then painted the top, too (which had a mahogany stain) White Dove, as well, and then added a dry brush coat of an almond color.  

Our "once gold" mirror felt the wrath of my paint brush, too!

Admittedly, it's only a matter of time before our dark stained dining table top gets painted, too.  For now, an oversized wicker tray, filled with a few white pieces, is guarding it from my paint brush.

Another little project in here included adding picture frame molding below the chair rail ...

Maybe one of these days, I'll actually finish that project over on this side of the room. 

Hopefully, our little plate wall and mirrored buffet distract from my lazy, unfinished job!

A few months ago, I scored this cute corner buffet on Craigslist.

I love the chicken wire the seller added.  And, well, no surprise that I painted it Ben Moore's White Dove, as well.

The only other change I'd love to add in here is a different chandelier ... hmmm, maybe "then" we'll start eating in here!

Thanks so much for stopping by,
