I know it’s been months since I started wallpapering the top third of the dining room walls with “Blue Strie” by Blue Mountain.
Finally I have hung the last piece.
The dark blue denimy print hides the imperfections in the old wall including humps and bumps.
I especially like how the new door trim pops next to it.
The whole dining room to-do list looks like this:
Remud any holes, seams, or dips to make a smooth wall. Wipe down the entire wall with vinegar and water to remove any residual wallpaper glue and to further smooth the plaster. Paint the ceiling. We used Edgecomb Grey in the adjacent kitchen. We used Revere Pewter on the dining room ceiling.
- Finish installing the baseboard trim
and trim up the door opening. Prime and paint the paneling.
- Paint the trim.
Paper the wall above the paneling.(See my dining room Pinterest page for inspiration.)
- Clean the floor. Then repolyurethane the new boards. (Wait to do this until after the conservatory floor is laid.)
Buy a room-size rug.
- Finish the cushions for the window seat one of which some mice have chewed.
Move the piano and table back into the dining room. Hang blinds and curtains.
- Move onto another room.
