Our dining room was one of the first remodeling projects we finished when we bought our fixer upper, and the one that by far took the longest. We literally tore apart the whole room and started fresh. In about four months we:
-ripped out the faux wood panelling and put up new dry wall
-installed baseboards and crown moulding
-removed the cheap office style ceiling panels to reveal tongue and grove ceiling (it was THE BEST surprise!)
-replaced the florescent lights with a chandelier
-ripped up the carpet and installed tile
Design flaws and electrical issues held the project up for a long time but once it was done…OH MY GOSH.
