Project KC: Dining Room and Entry Progress

It’s been a long time since the last Project KC update but I’m bringing it back from the dead! It was all finished a couple months ago but I’m finally getting around to the posts! In case you missed them,  catch up here:

Project KC: Before 

Project KC: Living Room Progress

I’ll be sharing final reveals of each space over the next couple weeks, but in the meantime, I’m recapping the dining room and entryway before and progress in this post.

The dining room got a big paint upgrade and the floors were stained darker, as with the rest of the wood in the hallways, bathroom and kitchen.

Here’s a look at the dining room before:
Red walls with an outdated sponge technique, boring beige on the lower third and orange-y flooring.

IMG_5321 You can see the darker flooring in this photo, but it’s much more noticeable in additional photos later on in this post.IMG_4522Let the painting progress begin! IMG_8988 My mom and I went through several options and chose a bluish grey for the top half and a brighter white for the bottom. The chair rail and ceiling, window and floor trim was left as is. IMG_8990 IMG_8989 The darker flooring really stands out here! This is it for the dining room (for now) but I can’t wait to show you the final ‘after’ photos! Such a drastic transformation, just from paint and stained flooring. IMG_8991Moving on to the hallway/entryway area. The floors were refinished and stained darker in here as well. This is the orange-y before:IMG_5323 And after sneak peek! IMG_4526 Another look at the entry before: floors stained, blue carpet replaced with a much better alternative, and I even convinced my mom to update the stairs. IMG_5322 The orange-y look carried over here so we decided to do the white spindles and stain the railing to match the darker flooring: IMG_4524 Far from finished here, but a peek at the improvement just from a couple spindles: IMG_3072 I’ll be sharing a bunch of the ‘after’ photos in the next couple posts, so stay tuned!
