Dining Room

  • February 6, 2018


So, we had a plain jane dining room when we moved in. We purposely didn't buy furniture for this room, knowing that I would be doing something with this space. Originally, it was supposed to be just chair rail & wainscotting, but my wife thought a coffered ceiling would look good as well. I was totally against the idea at first, so she suggested hiring someone to do it. She must've known this would trigger my "I'm not paying someone to do something I can" reaction. So, it became my project.

  • I so get that feeling of "not paying" for something I can do. I'm just not sure I would have had the patience and skills to do the job you did. Enjoy your new dining room!
