The dining room renovation is nearly complete. It is not yet decorated, but that part may take awhile. The dining room took forever to get finished because not only was there water damage in the ceiling that needed fixing, but there was also a set back where we had to take down the ceiling to change the pipes to be up to code. 

BEFORE:
These two pictures are from when we first got the house; untouched color and everything.


DURING RENO:

It became clear that the ceiling would need major work. It was wavy, cracks, uneven–just bad. My dad took on the project himself (I helped here and there where I could). We also traded out the old knob and tube electric for modern electricity 😉



After we got the ceiling drywall up for the second time, it was time to mud the drywall and paint. With the holidays, this project took longer than expected (common theme?) and so this was the view to the dining room for awhile.
The place was sealed off and paper on the floor. I think the dining room had paper on the floor for… 5 months? It was a long and never ending project

AFTER:
Over the past two weeks, we finished painting the room and hung the chandelier. The room looks great. I spent some time cleaning the floors too.

Decorating has not really started yet in this room and I think it will be awhile, but it’s nice to have somewhere to sit and eat!
