piquis reader kati driscoll purchased a victorian home from the 1870s that was in pretty rough shape. her dining room has heavy black soon along the walls and carpeting, holes in the wall and all sorts of pet damage. so she went to town on the space and decided to make things over! my favorite project of hers is the dining room- she ripped up the aging carpets, found beautiful heart pine flooring underneath, and sanded and stained the floors along with help from her dad and brother (her mom did the polyurethane coating!). after the floors were done, kati added wallpaper from ferm living and and a new coat of paint. as it that wasn’t enough, she also decided to open up the fireplace to expose the brick! great work, kati! click here for more pictures
Basic Steps: This project was tricky, in that it involved convincing my husband that painting the space black was not going to make the room feel too dark. I had a mood board of magazine tears taped to the walls for about two months before he was convinced. After that milestone, we ripped up the carpet, had the flooring installed and then painted. We assembled the shelving, applied the wallpaper to the inset ceiling and put up the chandelier. Then came furniture, drapes and finishing touches.
Last month I decided to live out my dining room fantasy by rounding up 25 of my favorite dining rooms with round tables, and today I’m finishing with the rest! These 30 dining rooms show how beautiful (and dramatic) square and rectangular tables can be, and all of the different ways you can decorate and light them. If you’re looking for dining room ideas, this post will definitely keep you busy for a while. I hope you enjoy it! xo, grace
