Whilst I was out shopping for supplies yesterday, Rick busied himself painting the dining room (along with writing this embarrassing and surprising post). We’ve said sayonara to the cerise, goodbye to the garnet, ciao to the cherry.Â This is how the dining room looked on the day we moved in:
During the painting process, it was interesting to watch the room evolve from dark and dingy to light and bright:
The walls, door and window trim have all been primed, making our dining room currently look like this:
It’s amazing how the white walls make the space feel so big. The plan is to keep the bottom half of the walls white and add a chair rail and boxes. The top half we are planning on painting a bold grey color, to contrast with the white trim and dark dining room furniture. Hopefully, the end result will look something like this inspiration pic:
I’m a little nervous about the grey color for the walls.Â It’s more bold than I usually tend to go for in colors.Â I’m hoping it willÂ bring a sophisticated and modern vibe to the room.
