New Hampshire Home Stager, Transforming My New Home - Dining Room
In a recent post, The New Hampshire Home Stager Bait & Switch, I promised to share photos from the transformation of my new home.
First decision was paint colors. I prefer keeping it simple, limiting the home to only a couple of colors.
I knew I wanted to use one of my favorite colors, Ben Moore Stampede 979, in several rooms. I chose Ben Moore Thunder AF-685 as a complimentary color for most of the remaining rooms.
Our first project was adding some warmth and sophistication to the Dining Room.
I wanted to give the room a more formal look by creating the appearance of wainscoting.
First we painted the top portion with Stampede and the lower portion with primer.
We attached 1 1/2 x 1/4 pine lattice wood strips, spaced about two feet apart. We primed the wood pieces and then painted the entire lower portion with trim color.
Adding a new light fixture and ceiling medallion completed our transformation.
It's funny...I didn't like the wall sconces and planned to replace them, but somehow painting the wall gave them a new look and I like them now.
Next up... Living Room
