So we broke open the wall last October.It is 95 % complete.We still have to install my two chandeliers and close in a small section of the tin ceiling.This room started out as a bedroom . Since my older two kids moved out the two younger boys took over the bedroom in the basement because it is huge.So this was a guest room/ dumping room for extra crap!!!!! We really didn't use our dining room, since we installed the wood burning stove we had to move the dining room table against the wall. So we combined the two rooms into one big room. The old bedroom became the new dining room/study. The old dining room is our new sitting room.So basically a new "great room". We are really using our main level now !!!! I painted the two rooms a dark chocolate brown.I wanted the ceiling in the study /dining room to pop.The tin ceiling looks great in there with the dark walls .Also I kept the sky blue ceiling in the old dining room. The molding is painted white.So here are before and after photos.
