I finished painting the dining room. Yeah! Here is what it looks like today. Just a note to say that my good camera is packed in a box somewhere (I can't find it) so this was taken with my point and shoot.
Just a reminder, below of how it looked the day we bought the house. The walls were salmon, and there was stained white carpet on the floor.
We used our same French country dining furniture from our previous home. The walls are actually painted the same color too. It is Belgian Waffle by Olympic Paints from Lowe's. We really loved that color in our previous home and knew it would work wonderful in our new home too. I still have more pictures to hang in the dining room. That will happen when the rest of the house is painted and we figure out where all of the pictures are going.
A few post back, I mentioned changing out the chandelier and showed you some inspiration pictures, here.
Here is a close up of the one we ended up buying.
We actually bought another one just like it to hang in our foyer. When we get that painted and have a chance to hang it, I will do a post.
I bought some flowers today for this post. I think they look a little French Country/Tuscan Christmas like.....
I still need to get or make curtains for the dining room, but that will be another post down the line when time and money allow.
Today, we actually have professional painters coming to paint the ceilings in the living room, den, master bedroom, hall, guest bedroom, guest bath and the walls of the TALL living room, foyer and stairway to the bonus room. They are too tall for me to paint safely. The painters will take until about Thursday to finish. Then I will paint the walls of the hallway, master bedroom, master bath, den, guest room and guest bath. Sounds like I am going to be busy into the New Year, doesn't it?
