Dining Room Progress Weekend 1

So we started adding some boards up on the walls ... we are trying to replicate the look of the library to tie the two rooms in together.

So we added boards to all the walls. Filled in all the nail holes... sanded them down.
Primed... Primed.. and Primed some more.
Painted the ceiling
Caulked all the gaps. Every single gap.
Then painted... and painted some more.

My step father was ever so nice to come hang the new chandelier for me.... which i may or may not just randomly pet and whisper I love you too.

Now the chandelier is low. We are waiting to build the table to see where we want to raise it up to. I just love looking at it, so I wanted it up right away.

We started here

So after a long weekend. we were here.

So going back to the to do list... we managed to knock out four items off our to do list in a weekend.
