DIY'ing It Can Be Frustrating

Who knew a quick makeover on the dining room
could be so frustrating?
It seemed simple really.

Just four  walls, right?

 A little bit of trim and chair rail. What could be so difficult?

 Picking out a color ended up being the MOST frustrating.

I'm not even sure we have the right brown but after Home Depot mixed the wrong color paint we were happy to get something close.

But it just might be a happy accident because it looks great with this
Hampton Bay chandelier I found!

Stay tuned for more! I of course, have family arriving for a belated Christmas celebration and we are not done.

Sandwiches anyone?

I'll be back with the final look... hoping to post to a linky party with our makeover.

When's that family coming again? :) Hang in there.

Love a re-do! Wish I had the time - still need to finish the molding trim in our bedroom from the re-do we did four years ago!
