Wall Trim to our Dining Room

Wednesday, March 25, 2015

Hi there! I can't believe the first day of spring and it snowed! I am so tired of the cold weather and can't wait for summer to arrive! (winter blues) Well, while waiting for the warm weather, I am getting ready for spring cleaning!! Oh yeah! time to have a general cleaning! I know! It is a lot of cleaning!! haha, I have a lot of stuff to sell online or probably I can give away to my friends & family. If they want it! lol  and, of course, I am back with another DIY project and hopefully more to come! (already got a tight schedule for summer!hehe)

And as to our DIY,  it is really an easy project. We wanted to add something on the wall to give it more of kinda appeal to it and one that we can think of is adding a chair rail on our dining room walls. 

Here is our dining room when we first moved in:

The view from Living room:

I choose between four paint colors in Greige Shades. Edgecomb gray (Benjamin Moore) on the top left, Top right is Color match of Edgecomb gray but it's a Behr, Bottom Left is Revere Pewter (Benjamin Moore), Bottom right is Gray Owl (Benjamin Moore). I painted the walls with Gray owl by Benjamin Moore. I like the classic look of it without being too dark grayish.

Then we finally bought our dining table from Ashley's Furniture store and added the cabinet that I painted here and put up a mirror that I got from Homegoods. 

Here it is with painted walls and with the chair rails. We didn't really like it with paint all the way down. 

So what I did, I painted it with white glossy paint (Polar Bear by Behr).

We are going to add some more details like putting wainscoting but probably we are going to do it by summer, for now we are so happy with the improvement we made!

Here is our updated dining room now: 

Can't wait to add crown molding, wainscoting, and a new light fixture. Well, more likely an additional upgrade. :) Then maybe a big paint canvass? What do you think?

Thanks for reading and Happy Spring Break!
