I would like your thoughts on what I'm planning to do with my dining room. I have an inspiration photo in my ideabook, but I couldn't figure out how to add it to this post.
I've attached three photos of my dining room and one of my kitchen to give you an idea of the flow. My kitchen is also a work in progress (hopefully new, much darker countertops and an altered peninsula).
In the dining room, I'm thinking of a much deeper yellow/gold on the walls. I like the raw wood paneling, but am considering replacing it with beadboard. What do you think? The ridiculous "molding" needs to be replaced. I would like some ideas on window treatments; we use the wood stove almost daily, so draperies would need to be washable. I like a farmhouse style.
You may notice that we have popcorn ceilings. Sadly, we cannot afford to remove them at this time.
