I have been painting for days. It has taken the better part of the last week to finish these projects before the end of the summer, which was my goal.
I am so glad this room is finished!
The leaves are changing on the trees in the yard much like the colors in our Dining Room.
Remember what it looked like before?
The dining room is the darkest room in the house. It has no natural light, and is sandwiched between two other rooms with wide over hang porches.
Thus, it feels like a cave.
It’s down right depressing.
The pea green color on the walls just made it more depressing.
I was thrilled to be able to paint it a fresh white, this one is called “Silent White” by Clark and Kensington.
It took more than two coats to cover the green color.
I did not paint the doors, they are a massive job and I just don’t have time for it at this point.
The white makes it all look so much brighter, doesn’t it?
I haven’t spent much time decorating in this room, but I did find these beautiful faux flowers and thought they would make things more cheery. It’s a temporary fix.
There is still much room for improvement. I have finally decided to paint our sideboard, but I can’t seem to arrive on a color for it.
I found the rectangular mirror at Walmart, I love how it brightens up the room.
We have decided we will add more mirrors to this room in the future, it needs all the light it can get.
As much as I love our dark colored furniture, it looks way to dark in this room. Not quite sure if I will paint it all or not.
The hallways are up next, will share the progress on those tomorrow!
