Now that the table is cleared and the guests have gone home, you hopefully have a few weeks before the next big holiday gathering. Why not take one of these weekends to spruce up your dining room for the New Year? Think of Dennis Moffitt Painting as a resource for Do-It-Yourself painting endeavors in the New England area. Here are some budget-friendly ideas to rejuvenate your residential living space, just in time for the holidays:
Repurpose Items: You probably have an old yard sale find laying around the house somewhere. Something that you saw and had to have, but now you can’t find the right place for it. Is it an old desk? Give it a fresh coat of paint and use it as extra storage for table cloths and lines. A large picture frame? Buy some chalkboard paint and create a fresh focal point for an empty wall.
Freshen Up: Maybe all that your dining room needs is a little upkeep. Take a fresh coat of paint to the baseboards and crown molding, or put a new finish on your wood table. Consider revamping just one wall. Taking a neutral dining room and painting a bold accent wall will go a long way. Choosing a color can be hard; don’t forget that DMP offers color consultations for such decisions.
Consider the Lights: Take a look at the lighting in your dining room. Is it mostly natural? Mostly low lights or bright lights? Consider changing up your bulb preference to give a different feel to the room. If you have overhead lighting, consider only using lamps, or reclaiming a vintage chandelier. Our contractors at DMP can help with re-working some of these issues.
Does your dining room look exactly the same as it did 15 years ago? At DMP we encourage you to take a chance and step out of the box this winter.
