The Dining Room Fiasco is officially completed! I brushed the final coat onto our doorway just last night and despite the eager enthusiasm of my three young helpers ages 2, 4, and 6, we are done. Now on to “The Stairway Fiasco.”

So behold! The Wilks dining room/school room/game room in all of its glory.


And yes, that dark spot below the painting in the “Before” picture is a one inch hole made by a pair of madly stabbing children’s scissors. One of the many reason’s that I embarked upon “The Dining Room Fiasco” in the first place.


I promise you a crazed animal, a concussion, and a kiss in every single're welcome!

  • An update, the label on our can of “Burnt Almond” paint instructed us not to wipe down our new walls for at least 2 weeks. Well… we have already had a full glass of orange juice sloshed upon one wall and a two foot long line carefully drawn in black colored pencil. What to do what to do. Not supposed to wash it, but will the stains solidify along with the paint. I ended up lightly dabbing at the orange juice and leaving the colored pencil. We knew it wouldn’t last long even with our increased pickiness, but this is rediculous. Ah well, not perfect, but it is better.

  • It looks beautiful! This is why we take pictures, right? To remember what it looked like when it was nice and new, pre-orange juice?
