Yesterday I shared my long to do list I call the Dining Room Project. Why do I name my projects? I don’t know. But they sound better than “A room that desperately needs a makeover and what I’m doing to get it there” right? Do you name your projects?
The dining room is the one space in the house that has not received any of our decor love since we moved in last year. In less than 3 weeks I’ll be hosting my sister’s wedding shower in that room so it was about time to whip it into shape!
Here is our list for the makeover with some already checked items, horray.
This past weekend was a chance to do some crossing of of that list so off I went. First up was the wallpaper. I started my selection process here. Can you tell which color won?
Sure I can hang half a room of wallpaper in 5 days, no problem. After I calmed down form that slight panic, I realized I could then pick out a paint color too and get started on that.
We started with lots of paint color chips on the wall. This was actually back at the holiday time as you can see part of my decorations on the mirror.
Off to buy paint. And while I’m at it, window film. I love checking items of a list, especially a list as long as this one.
