Inspired by many other bloggers out there who've been adding that gorgeous picture molding under the chair rail in their dining rooms, I decided that it was time I did the same. I knew I would never have the patience or skills to cut, measure and install my own so I cheated and got these pre-made ones at Lowes. I got 10 of the largest ones they sold (14 x 23) for about $12.00 each. It was well worth the price not to have to buy the molding and try and cut them myself, just to have to have them redone by a pro - - so here they are "eye balled" in an arrangment I liked.
Painter guy and I will start around 8:00 a.m. Monday morning with the ceiling in the dining room and foyer and work out way down to the walls, ending up with the picture molding installation. I'm hoping by the end of the day I'll have my new dining room and I can start the decorating process. I'll be using all of my cremeware and tureens and I can't wait to see the new paint color with my hardwood floors, seagrass rug and dark furniture!
Here are some pictures showing where I leaned them against the walls trying to get an idea of where they will be installed on the walls. I think they will add a touch of elegance to plain boring walls....
See the water stains on the next two pictures? I promise I don't know how that happened!!!! Obviously something got placed on there (probably at Christmas) that was wet and left this water mark. I'm hoping some of you wonderful folks out there can give me some idea of what I can do to get the stain out, i.e. is there some kind of product that will "erase" it? H-E-L-P!!!!
