Gallery Wall and Dining Room plans

Hope everyone had a great weekend, It was beautiful here.  Me and my hubby worked in the yard on Saturday and today I worked on something that I didn't quite finish so more on that later.

I read that there is a gallery wall linky party coming up this week which got me thinking about my dining room wall.  I have had my gallery wall for quite a while.  I'm bored with it.  It needs some changing up.  

I want a to jazz it up a little, make it not so, well boring. So while staring at that I started thinking about the pine tung and groove. I'm thinking it's about time to paint it white.  I have wanted to paint it for years but fear was holding me back.  Fear that I might not like it and also the pine was one of the first projects the hubby and I worked on together (10 years ago)and I'm sentimental about it.  The yellowing however has finally outweighed the sentimental.  I just cant take it anymore. 

I think white will look cottagey and I cant wait!  Of course if I paint the dining room I just might have to paint the maple cabinets in the kitchen....... and here we go.... 

Good bye sweet yellow pine.  Oh and little drawer unit from Ikea that we use as a charging station, I have plans for you too.
Have a great week!

Pin It

I painted over my pine tung and groove about 3 yrs ago. Painted it the gray blue you have on your wall. I love it. :) Paint it! You'll be happy with it!

Other than the sentimental attachment to it, I get the feeling you will love it! Go for it, girl!

We installed pine tung and groove to cover whatever ancient stuff our kitchen walls were made of. We did it the full height of the room (which is only six feet tall on one side, good thing we're short!). I painted it Straw Hat originally but last year painted it Crumb Cookie and love it.
I don't think you'll have any regrets once you see it all refreshed with a new coat of paint.

Ewww...I'm in the process of painting over my wood paneling in my house. It's totally worth the sweat and paint fumes! Can't wait to see your after photos. :-)

Okay, you go girl...You are going to love that tung and groove painted white. Oh, I cannot wait to see the results. I know what you mean about the gallery wall, after awhile it needs a switch-up..I have one in my office that I am planning to attack real soon.
I did not hear about the gallery wall linky party...where is that?

I think the bead board will look great in white. Your gallery wall looks great. I have a bunch of mirror that I want to do something similar with. Need to try to get that done!
