we have a few favorite vintage pieces that fit perfectly into this space! I still need to make the seat cushions for the dinner room table but what a big difference. We love it.

this was so much work! we painted all the cabinets, the hardware, the light fixtures, replaced one and new bamboo shades, wallpaper (yeah!~chris gave in and he likes it). the hardest part was not having time to complete it so we were doing it after work or meetings at night. A few times 12:00 or 1:00 in the morning before our homestudy and before house guests for hill cumorah.

Hey Lisa, I love it! That is so impressive you guys did that all yourselves. I love the wallpaper, red cabinets and blue accent pieces. Do you want to come style my house? Great job!

Cute!! I love every single square inch of it! What a project... We started putting wainscott in our bathroom in February and 5 months later, still not totally done. After finishing the basement to 95%, we're totally burnt out for the last 5%. You guys did great! Congrats on finishing.
