After all of the color samples, Sam picked the color when I couldn't decide. He was pushing toward the terra cotta and I was pushing toward orange, though it's funny how many people have said: "I'm glad you didn't paint your dining room orange!" Where is the adventure, people?
But after seeing the new color up, I will say that although I wouldn't have picked it, it looks awesome and the color suits the house better, it's more classic, and it looks great with the pumpkin pine floors. So, here you go!
AFTER: The color is called "Masada" but Christine renamed it "Nutmeg" and I like that much better.
I don't know what I was thinking when I got these chairs with an off-white fabric. And this is the table where we paint and do projects, so needless the say, the fabric was trashed.
For $6.00 of fabric, new chairs! And I can change them again whenever I need to.
Home improvement projects really bring out the best in our marriage (sarcasm). Hanging curtains at 10:00 the other night went like this:
Also, we haven't gotten a new light fixture yet and we need to strip and refinish the table, but the room has a nice feel to it just in time for our Thanksgiving feast.
Have a wonderful holiday, everyone, and I'll see many of you tomorrow morning at the Turkey Trek!
