Dining Room Part 2

Making progress on the dining room from here where we started.  (Did I mention I am so psyched to be doing this project? Yes!)   I painted the gray (Valspar Granite Dust) on the walls & only needed 1 coat (can I get another Yes!).  That Valspar paint & primer is amazing.  We are really happy with this color.

And moving on to the wainscoting.  We measured & priced it out to buy the individual pieces of trim vs buying the pre-made panels at Lowe's & decided to go with the pre-made:

I was on clean-up duty:

Installing the trim. That's the handy husband - he's not real big on getting his pic taken:

Still have some work to do but it has already updated the dining room so much!


Stay tuned!

Linking up to the Power of Paint party


  1. That is looking amazing. I'm glad you are liking the Valspar paint. :)

    I had no idea there even was pre-made panels. I want to add some to my hallway upstairs. How much were they?

  2. When I went to Lowe's & had to buy so many (like 25 of the big ones), I asked & got a discount! The big ones are about $12 ea. Thanks for the tip on the paint color.

  3. That is fabulous! I love trim and wainscoting and bead board and crown...... :D

  4. It's looking A-Mazing! I've got plans for the same look in our living room. I noticed those pre-done frame... I'm sure it's much easier that way. LOVE the paint too. Thanks for partying with us at the POPP.

  5. This room is looking fabulous! I love the color you painted the walls and the panels are beautiful! Can't wait to see the finished project!
