Dining Room Walls - Check!

Hello! I am so darn excited that my dining room walls are FINALLY painted! Four walls, three colors, and a lot of time, but they are DONE! (Can you tell I'm a little excited?) When I started this "little" project I noticed the walls had never been painted...E.V.E.R. They sheet rocked and primed.

Well, that isn't quite my decorating style, so I went shopping for some wall make-up. Time to pretty them up!

I chose cobblestone for the upper 2/3 and bird house brown for the lower 1/3 (this has a hint of red in it), with a stripe in between them in the same paint as the trim, as to mimic a chair rail. Check it out!

That stripe was tough. But I am very pleased with it. I really love how warm the room is now. When you walk in it feels like it is giving you a hug. (I know, I'm a little corny.)

Remember the changed out light fixture from Dining Room Redo - Part 1? It goes perfectly in the freshly painted room. Don't you think?

I still have the base board to paint and install. Almost there! I can hardly wait! I will show you when it is ALL done, trim AND decorative items. :-)

Have you been making progress in one of your rooms lately? I would love to hear about it! Let's keep working on The Finishing Touches together!

    1. Thanks! I have been undecided on just how much I like it, but after taking the pictures and making the post, I like it so much more! I guess I just needed to see it in a different way to truly appreciate the work I put in it. Thanks again!
