Updating our dining room five years ago was the very first time I ever operated any kind of power tool. I loved the look of wainscoting and decorative moulding and wanted to try installing it myself. So we bought a miter saw and nail gun with air compressor and several books on how to cut and install moulding. There was a lot of trial and error in this room but it sure feels great to think back now and know how much I’ve learned and how far I’ve come in my ability to do these kinds of projects.
Here’s a photo of the dining from our house’s sale listing when we bought it:
This Simon Pearce bowl was one of my favorite wedding gifts – I love the simple, graceful lines. My favorite dining room table linens are hemstiched ones like this ivory runner here.
