Here you can see some of the drywall going up to cover the popcorn ceiling that the previous homeowners had used to cover some of the cracking plaster.
I'm thrilled to be having the ceilings and hardwood floors done in the dining room. This room gets great light during the day and with a fresh coat of paint its going to look warm, cozy and bright.
The fireplace is a stacked stone and was originally shades of red and gray. we painted it white years earlier to tie it into the rest of the room. We are still debating whether we'd like to cover it completely with a wood surround and a new mantle.
Notice the two tiny doors to the right of the fireplace, just one of the many little hidden nooks that this house has.
We decided to keep the wood paneling in this room for the character it adds to the walls of the room.
Previously a ceiling fan was in this room, but we are changing it out for a chandelier. I'm still looking for "the one", but I have my eye on this one from Restoration Hardware.
