dining room update House Fix midcentury modern midcentury modern dining room Personal

Bringing in the new year strong...I'm like a freight train with ideas...oh the endless possibilities for our new home! Seriously, I better chill out...is that even possible for me? After all, I do have like....forever!

The wall with the wood door...is going bye bye. As we demo out the kitschy kitchen....going modern, with a free standing modular kitchen....OH SO excited. It's going to be a process of phases as I'm sure we'll hit some hiccups along the way...the joys of updating a 1950's home...the electrical, plumbing, flooring, tile removal,appliance replacement etc.etc!

Our basement is nearly finished! I'm wrapping up the painting tonight hopefully, but the 4th bedroom is completely framed out, drywalled, new carpet installed, baseboards and window moldings in...looks amazing! I'll post pictures soon. You can follow other progress pics on my Flickr.

Happy Tuesday.

    Very nice! I have to say that with these pics and personal stuff, the place looks like a real, cozy home. By the way, I really like the chairs in the dining room but I cannot quite tell what color are they exactly. Is it green or yellow?
