The dining room reno is coming along nicely! We had the door to the hallway framed in and dry walled. Today Mike is painting and getting the outside of the dining room completed. Painting it the color of the living room, Revere Pewter.

And here's a few pics of the room right now mostly empty.
Notice the dust on the floor. I'm trying not to freak out!
Now on to the Inside of the dining room. This is the goody!!
I ordered my new dining table the other day, and can't wait to get it! I bought the Rustic Java Greyson Fixed Dining Table
I decided to go with this style instead of the trestle table because I liked the look of the four legs and thought it would be easier putting chairs on either end. It's nice and big and will seat 8! I can't believe that I'm finally going to get a table that will seat 8 people!
I also ordered this chandelier from Overstock. It's the Sonoma Natural Beaded Black chandelier. I love the wooden beads on it and feel like it will make a real statement over my new table.
For the color of the room I've decided to go with a Navy Blue. I want my new dining room to have a different feel from the rest of the house, and feel cozy and intimate. We plan on doing some white board and batten and the built ins on the far side of the room will be all white as well. So I think the Navy and White combo will be timeless and classic!
Here's a little eye candy to help you see my vision:
Doesn't this just make you want to go in there and check it out?
Back to work!!
