Dining Room: Update

A couple weeks back I made a idea board for our searoulsy lacking in style dining room. I complained that the dining room felt so tiny and univiting and it was a dumping ground for my purse, mail etc. So you can imagine how surpsied I was when I began to prime the walls and dining room grew. I was a little nervous to paint the walls Woodraw Wilson Putty by Vaslpur -- I didn't want my little dining room to shrink again.


Once I painted the room and the baseboards the prettyist color apeared. It's the perfect biege color with no crazy undertones (like green) Before I paint the walls I did a test coat with three sample paints from Valspur - not only are the sample paint sizes perfect they also save a bunch of paint misshaps.

Case in point - How yucky are some of those colors on my wall - The picture was taken in natrual bright sunlight. Color  # 1 is the color I choose, # 2 looked dirty green # 3 way took dark. The white under each paint is the baseboard color.



Here's a picture of a portion of our dining room after it was primed.





I think the dining room is begining to look more and more like my vision. Here's a sneek peek of a portion of the dining room that is done. It's the same coner of the dining room as above.



I think one of my favorite flowers are babys breath


An extra vase makes the buffet look prettier



Here's a better pciture of the buffet, I recently painted - yup the handle is fixed!

  1. It looks more grey on the wall, but I really like the color. Thanks for the tip about the other magazine, too. It seems like I may have heard of it before, but I'll definitely check it out.

  4. What a great idea to use the chair in the entry--I hadn't even thought of it!! My area is very small, so it probably won't work, but if I do use it I'll definitely give you credit for the idea! Thanks.
