Dining Room Before

Looky what I found. Pictures of my dining room before we moved in. These are some of the pictures I took the first time we saw the house… that is not my furniture or snazzy lace tablecloth.
All this paper went bye-bye. The room is so much lighter now. Lighter and uh, not painted. Can you see that outlet on the wall, how high it is? Why did they put that there? I’m thinking about taking it out, because I can’t think of any reason to keep it there.

Do I need to mention how ‘brass-happy’ the previous owners were? Yes, I think I do. We have brass everything; light fixtures, outlets, door knobs, faucets, towel bars….ick. I don’t particularly care for the shiny brass look. I’m also baffled by the two light fixtures in the dining room. They drive Clay crazy because they’re not centered and there’s two of them…why? So, we’ve been looking for a new or old chandelier to put in there. Of course it will mean removing the old ones, leaving two gaping holes to patch and making a new hole and pulling wire. Projects, we love them.
Here’s the scratch-n-sniff paper. Mmmm cherries, peaches, apples. This is the best photo I could find, it’s also from our first visit to the house. We want to take down the wallpaper and get rid of that strange diamond pattered tile. This project won’t happen for quite a while….or ever.
