Back then we had drywall as "curtains" and there was just shit everywhere. It took many months - though it really shouldn't have because there really wasn't too much to do - but we are finally DONE. I was hoping to finish it before our party, but it didn't happen, boooo.
In the days leading up to the party Chris applied the texture
And then I primed and painted
I was hoping to get the light hung, but the night before the party when I went to HD they didn't have any escutcheons for lights, so we couldn't hang it. Sigh. It ended up not being that big of a deal though because 98% of the time people were outside, so they didn't have a hanging light bulb to stare at :)
A week or two ago we FINALLY got to hanging the light (of course I got no pictures of Chris hanging it), but once we did that, we were done. Yay! We reused the light from the front room
We loved the light, but it just felt way too small for such a big room. So we took it down and saved it with then intention of using it in the nook when we finally got to it. And now....
It looks fantastic! Though I do have to confess it more often actually looks like this
Crap on the ground, Zoe flying by, shit all over the table :) But for one or two hours, it will look nice and clean :)
I love this room. I loved it when we first moved in, even though it was plain and ugly - ugly light, ugly paint color, ugly ceiling
The room is small, but it took some time to get there.
The pantry got organized (which involved getting rid of some really expired spices)
There was a ton of little things that had to fixed on the walls before we could paint. But I was SO EXCITED when I could finally get to painting
And it was really pretty when it was done. It looks so wonderful being the same color as our kitchen and I love how bright and cheery it is
And then it was the finishing touches of hanging the artwork, repairing the ceiling and then painting it. I am SO HAPPY to call another room in the house FINISHED. I love the artwork on the wall with the fun clock my mom had when we were little
And even though I wasn't planning on having these chairs in here because they belong to the eventual sports ticket table (whenever we actually get to building that...), I think they look really good. If I had my way I'd have the chairs be white, but hey, we have these chairs on hand and they look good
It's so wonderful to have a place to eat together as a family, and I love that
And it certainly looks better than before
Hooray for house progress and pretty rooms! :)
