We need help with a very dark 1940s paneled dining room
January 30, 2013 in Design Dilemma
The walls are horizontal panels of knotty pine darkened with walnut stain. There are posts of cedar trunks holding up the ceiling beams. The floor is terracota and the ceiling is constructed with thick hand hewn cedar logs and distressed T&G paneling. The French doors are original and need replacing. There are two windows that match the French door (not shown). 20 years ago, we added much needed track lighting.
