What would you do when the your local meteorologist is forecasting heavy rain for the entire weekend???
WEEELL . . . . ya know what we did???
Seen below is our dining room, in all it’s “getting ready for changes” glory! Lately, I cannot get enough of the vintage industrial vibe. We snagged this (leaning against the wall) great old sign at a local antique store that was going out of business, for not too much cha-chinggg$$$. It reads “ATL”short for Atlanta, “DIN” short for diner, “Great” for great food. I thought what a “feast” for the eyes!
Above our retro sign I plan to use a pair of these heavenly filament sconces from Restoration Hardware, if I don’t change my mind during our redecorating.
A nice addition to any room, inexpensive and expressive is millwork (molding). Ever since my husband purchased his new fancy chop saw he’s been getting his grove on . . .
The two windows seen below in our dining room, he will be injecting the decorative trim moldings.
Here’s a closer look at my vision. The two windows with the black frames are what I’m aiming for. If your not a fan of black, you could use light gray? Or white?
To Start, I plan to punch up these windows by using nicely sized moldings.
Here’s a little trick . . . to create a picture frame like molding, we will glue two pieces together to create a thicker profile.
Our finished piece will have a nice picture frame like profile, and will be 5 1/4” wide.
Clamp and allow to dry.
First piece of molding going up . . .
Use finish nails to hang and a countersink punch, sick miter honey!!!
The first piece installed, woo hoo!
You can’t beat the beauty of millwork, big style, don’t you agree? The two windows set us back a “whapping” $68.00!
These window frames will be complemented with Ralph Lauren’s “black truffle” paint soon.
