Tweaking the Dining Room
The Dining Room. When we moved in, the walls were, I guess, antique white and the woodwork painted brown.
It was a little hard to tell much about it, because there was a LOT of furniture in it. A couple of armoires, a table and chairs, lots of things on the walls.
I just wanted to clear it out and see what was left. It's not big, but I just couldn't see it, as chock full as it was.
I painted the walls pale yellow. Nope. Wrong color. I painted the woodwork white, including the antique fireplace mantel on the wall. Painted the inside of the fireplace black. Then we found the right wall color. Chickie helped me paint the walls the second time.
With your back to the windows, you can see into the (newly remodeled) kitchen.
The chandelier matches the pendant lights in the (newly remodeled) kitchen.
This view looks into the living room. The china cabinet was just moved from the corner where the armchair now resides.
The cat picture was moved in from the living room. We like it here. The colors are great and we view it more here.
The table is a lovely place to have a romantic dinner or a family meal!
