Finally got some pictures to show you where I’m at, as of today, in the Dining Room.
But I must start off by saying-
The apple green curtain covering the opening to the future pantry is a temporary fix. (I’m determined to get an old screen door!) I still haven’t purchased new lighting, curtains, or installed the picture ledge on top of the beadboard wainscoting I recently put up. And, last but not least, the dining table and rug are both going to be replaced too.
And here are some extra shots. The flowers are courtesy of my Mom 🙂
Here’s what I have planned for on top of the picture ledge. The frames I drew in are not the right sizes, but you get the idea. I plan to install recessed “wall washer” lights in the ceiling, to illuminate the black and white photography. 🙂
Which fixture(s) do think would look best? I really like these from Pottery Barn. Keep in mind, the new (100 year old) dining table I’m inheriting is longer, rectangular-shaped and dark brown wood.
