This weekend we started on giving our dining room a new coat of paint. It's been red for many years and I was ready for a change.
Remember all the paint samples I bought trying to choose a color for the dining room? There really wasn't any more room on the paint shelf in the garage to store these paint samples and I wanted to use them up on something, so................
They were mixed up in a bucket and used for the first few coats of paint over the deep red.
Funny thing...the color turned out REALLY pretty! A light pastel grayish green. This shade of green is what I'd been looking for at the beginning, but in the end we chose a bluish grey because it goes better with the furniture, china and other accessories used in the dining room.
I was really worried that I would like this color better than the grey, but the grey is really wonderful too.
Still have another coat of bluish grey to paint on the walls this evening and of course, the trim has to have a new coat of paint, too! Guess what I'm doing this week?!
Hope you had a wonderful weekend!
