I LOVE RED..... I just do. However, I've never painted any walls red before in all my years.....
However, when we rented our house right now, the dining room was painted red. The problem, however, was that it was badly scratched and dinged and it needed painted. We could have chosen to paint over the red and make it lighter and brighter......but we got a red as close to the red that was there and painted the room red again.......it's really too small of a dining room to be painted red, but it's not forever and it will be awesome at Christmas. I have found that Fall colors don't go as well in there, so I've done just a few things....but at Christmas? LOOK OUT!!!
so, here's the room BEFORE:
You can see ONE of the BIG scratches on the back wall toward the left, but there were tons more....I don't know what they did in there....maybe through forks and knives against the wall!!!! But here it is now. This room took FOREVER because I have so many dishes and teacups and things.....it really made me think: DO I NEED ALL THIS STUFF? I've decided that for right now, until we decide about the whole bed and breakfast thing, I do.....so, here it is:
OK, off I go......more to do!!! I don't quite know if I'm going to make 'my' finish line date of the end of September, but I'm trying....We've been here now 5 weeks; I should be done! Thank you for taking a peek....love you!!! xo
