okay, the dining room walls are painted, which is essentially what i said i was going to do... in my mind, i was also going to clean & paint the trim around the windows, doorways & fireplace. and i kind of thought i'd spray paint the chandelier, too. however, i painted 4 other rooms in the last 2 weeks, too. so i think i'm off the hook!
here it is: the dining room. the color is 'ballard blue' by valspar, the eddie bauer collection. i'll tell you a secret: i don't actually LOVE it. it's pretty, don't get me wrong. but i look at this really beautiful room & think, "what's this doing in my house?" it doesn't look like me. no, i'm not going to repaint it. i'm going to make sure the accessories i put in here give it a significantly less formal look! i'm thinking burlap, rusty old junk, and chippy painted stuff- like pretty much everything i own!
next projects? well, the master bath needs a second coat, the master bedroom is only 1/8 done, the powder room is 1/2 done. then the kitchen needs to be touched up, the utility closet could use a splash of color... foyer, stairway, hallway walls & floors, "bonus room," and every single piece of trim & molding.
i will be painting for the REST of my life! (not complaining- we chose this, and it's a fun journey!)
