This is a picture of the dining room before we got our hands on it. As you can see, it was perfectly lovely, but entirely green. I don’t mind green, but I wanted a more festive dining room.
We ripped up the carpet, primed and painted all the walls and trim, and my wildly talented husband created the lovely striping effect you see under the chair rail. We painted the chairs purple – the can showed a deeper, more aubergine purple, but I like the way they turned out nonetheless. We also replaced the chandelier.
The dining room table is a new addition – oak drop-leaf with some dings and nicks but a whole lot of character. I love it. My mom bought it for me at an estate sale recently – the same one where we bought that awesome stereo I blogged about. At least I think I blogged about it. Yeah, I did.
The kitchen is done, too. We’ll save that for next time.

The only thing that's missing is a big ol' platter of your famous chicken salad samiches…and me…but that's all. nothing else. maybe a cold beverage. wait, no, i'm so silly. two cold one's. cuz it's a platter…
Also, thanks for thinking of me by putting 4 chairs in there. You know how I like to sit and put my feet up on the opposite chair and place one of my shoes on each of the side chairs…keeping it symmetrical.

It looks really nice. I can't wait to see it sometime.
