Beadboard in the Dining Room.

A few months ago we moved the buffet in the dining room here where the computer desk was, and built the cafe shelves above it.

This is where the buffet once stood. For the past few months this has been a blank white wall.

Enter a piece of beadboard and some leftover paint and trim. I painted the top half of the wall the same beige color as our family room.

We still need to change the outlets to white. I got the berry wreaths for 25 cents each at a yard sale! The clock came from our local thrift store for $2 a few months back.

I took five of the gold frames that have hung on this wall for years and painted and distressed them. I have been wanting to do silouettes of the kids for a long time and I finally broke down and did it. It cost me $1 for the paper.

I am so pleased with how this wall turned out for very little money. I can't wait to get started on the rest of the dining room/kitchen.

I am linking up with Twice Remembered and Between Naps on the Porch
