Welcome, I can say that I am now 95% done with dining room...I really really love this room now. Let me show you some finishing touches we did..
This is a picture of my material I found at wal mart for 5.88 a yard....LOVE IT

Here it is on my chair. My chairs went from green to this wonderful fresh look.

This was my 17 year old chandelier all in brass and glass...It had to go, the brass part..

We took it down and it got a coat of black satin spray paint...Woo Hooo...What a difference all for 2.99.

This is dining room before chair rail and light painted, along with old chair material. The walls are painted gentle rain by behr.

Nothing done here, just taking down Christmas stuff. You can still see oak base boards and wallpaper along with green chair seats.

My table with some odd and end white and black dishes, I was seeing how it would look. I need to get new dishes.....look out tj max, marshals, home goods and where ever else I can find great price on black and white....

So here I show you my almost totally finished dining room...I want to get a picture for the wall on the left and you can't see in this picture but in another post I have a small curio that is next to get painted and the glass and oak lighted stand you see here on the left I would love to paint the oak on this also...We have some touch ups on the chair rail yet and we are done....I would love to hear and comments and suggestions that you may have.
I pray all is good with you and your family. Enjoy your week and all the newness of spring all around you.
