Here are some pics of the DR before I started...(and yes...still using hubby's camera...sorry about the date stamps..no patience to crop those out tonight)
View from the den into the dining room
(yes, Wriggly sleeps in here--see bottom right)
Please ignore the light fixture...just trying to see what the white shade would look like...I ususally have black shades on it..
I bought this fabric not too long ago from Hancock's.
It was on sale for $5/yard.
These are probably the 7th pair of window treatments in this room in 5 years.
Again...Nester's Fold & Poof Method..no sew, no fuss.
View from the kitchen...
the DR is my catch-all room.
And this looks pretty good compared to some days :)
I painted the walls 'Latte' from Sherwin Williams. There is a story behind this color. A story that will have to have a separate post.
I loved the red under the chair rail up until a few months ago. After seeing TDC doing the molding boxes, I knew that is what I wanted to do, and what needed to be done first.
(It really is the perfect red. Can't remember color name, but will check the garage later)
I used Home Depot's Paint + Primer In One (semi-gloss) to cover the red. It took 2 coats. But with such a small area to paint under the chair-rail, it took only a few minutes. And it goes on like BUTTA!
I feel like I can breathe! So fresh and light!
Just wanted to share a little peek...not quite done...so stay tuned!
