Here's another way before picture. Dining room is in the same room as the living
Here wall paper is off and popcorn ceiling gone.
Here it is now. We are on the hunt for a table/ thinking about making our own. I'm not sure what we will do yet. I have a new fixture in mind for the ceiling but I'm waiting for the table first. Pictures on the left are recent portraits of the kids and their baby pictures underneath. The frames were just cheap $3 front load ones from Walmart. I'm happy with how they look for that cheap! As you can see in the photo we still need to finish up the corner baseboard that goes into the kitchen. I painted the windowsill in here too.
On the opposite wall I have a print from a favorite artist, who I also got to take a workshop from, Mike Malm. It's small but I love it.
