New Dining Room, Painting Tips, and Some Fall Decor


I know, I know... This is a beauty blog. But I loooove our home and sharing decorating ideas and on occasion, my craftiness and DIY skillz.

And now, I loooove our new dining room.



Since I painted it myself (well, I did have A LOT of help from Brad painting the ceiling...), I decided to make a quick video for TiffanyDtv (my other, more random YouTube channel) and share some of my painting tips I've learned over the years that really make a difference.

Also, I give you guys a little peek at some of my Fall decor :)

...all of which is totally Waylon-approved.

Chandelier: Pottery Barn (they're 20% off right now!)
Paint color: Behr paint and primer in one, Cinnabark (flat finish)
Glittery gold accent plates: Pier 1
Pumpkin little covered dishes: Williams-Sonoma
Silver candlesticks: Pier 1

    The glittery plates are actually VERY recent. Just got them over the past week and they were just putting them out. My store only had 4 so far! So naturally, I cleaned them out :)

    Thanks! The dining room is the only room we have a painted ceiling in. It's probably going to stay that way :) It was a lot of trouble with the textured ceilings, plus, I like that it's unique. Might get a bit busy if we had it in more rooms. I'd really only do it in rooms with crown molding though.

  34. Hi,
    I just want to ask if is there any possibilities that you could help, gives some tips about how .
    I don’t have any idea about repainting or even purchasing the right materials to use. Still I want to try it for me to save money. I was like looking for Painters in Ottawa do the job. Still I don’t know eventually if how would it cost me or save more money than to do it my self.
