This week was full of a lot of small tasks for the One Room Challenge dining room.

Painting Columns and Ceiling

I spent one night priming the 3 columns that frame in the dining room to get them ready for paint. They will be painted the white trim color, Benjamin Moore White Dove, that is consistent with the main floor. I also had a little time to make touch ups to the ceiling paint from scuffs when we removed and reinstalled the crown moulding. This week I plan to finish painting the columns, and then happily put the paintbrush away for the remainder of this project.

Hanging the Chandelier

We got the light hung up over the table! I am waiting to share it in the room until the final One Room Challenge reveal, but it looks perfect in the room. The soft curves of the brass and linen shades warm up the room perfectly!

Console Table

We spent a little time building and prepping the console table that will be covered in grass cloth wallpaper. I am hoping to replicate this table. I will spend this week covering and writing a detailed post on the process if it turns out!

Paint Color and Finish

The walls are painting Farrow & Ball Lamp Room Grey, color matched in Valspar’s Signature paint, in a Satin Finish.
