Dining Room Update–ORC Week 4


Progress on the dining room update is moving right along as I attempt to complete the project in six weeks as a participant in the One Room Challenge at the Calling it Home blog. The photo below shows what I started with.

The old wallpaper has been removed and has been replaced by this P Kaufmann fabric, Malawi, in the Hibiscus color. You can read about that process by clicking here and here.

The wall below the chair rail was  given a fresh coat of Valspar paint, Pam’s Lace.

This week the brass chandelier was replaced with a crystal one.

The mirror that hangs over the sideboard was given a fresh coat of Liquid Leaf. I  used the same product on my foyer mirror and wanted them to have the same finish. It is very quick drying and easy to use. I purchased it at Hobby Lobby.

I am confident that I am going to be able to pull it all together in the last two weeks. Next up will be new drapes and new chair seats.  Be sure to click over to Calling It Home here to see the other projects.

I’m also linking to Thoughts of Home on Thursday, and to Grace at Home, two great parties with lots of inspiration!
