updating the home...

So I was under the false assumption that new paint throughout most of my house would equal instant transformation in those rooms. Yea, not so much. It has been a slow process to put things back together, disposing of some of the old, repurposing and also buying new.

So far, the one room that is "most done" is the dining room.
Paint: Martha Stewart Bedford Grey, Home Depot
Artwork: prints from Sprik Space, printed 12x12 at Costco, Ikea Ribba frames, 20x20 (more inspiration with these frames HERE, be warned they are big--the frames not the folks at Young House Love)(light from this angle is not good at all, truer colors shown above)
Curtains: Ikea
Rod: Home Depot Levolor brand

Full disclosure: I only have one pair of curtains b/c I was choosing between dark grey solid and this lighter print. Also, the pair that is hanging has yet to be hemmed. Our longer term goal for this room is to extend the hardwood but for now, the old carpet stays. Also, I would like to add more artwork to some of other walls and am open to suggestions that would bring a bit more texture into the room.

What do you think?
Next up, kitchen!
