So here's our plan:
-lighten up the space by painting the wainscoting and all trim Dove White (to match the rest of the trim in the house)
-remove the foam crown moulding and medallion (too many roses!) and replace with wood
-wallpaper the top half
-paint and recover the dining room chairs
-hang drapes to match the living room
This is the kind of look we are going for:
And now, let the wallpaper stripping begin!
