Since the surgery I have spent a lot of time at home. I've been looking around and making plans for all the make overs that I'd like to see happen in my house. Bill loves when I start to make plans!
One of the things I wanted to do was change the color of the kitchen and dining room. There isn't a lot of natural light in these two rooms and the green paint on the walls wasn't brightening things up at all.
So far Bill has painted the kitchen ~ and I love the results.
He'll be putting the same color (Behr - Raffia Cream) on the walls in the dining room soon.
We'll be taking down the ceiling fans and getting new light fixtures. A new tile back splash might be in our future too. Someday I'd like to get new counter top ~ I think something dark would look wonderful. But I'm just really happy to have the new paint color. Once the dining room has it's new wall color I get to start deciding what kind of goodies I'll be displaying. That's the fun part!
I'll show more photos as the work progresses.
? QUESTION ?
In the first AFTER photo you can see my dining room furniture. I'm thinking about painting it. Any opinions? Maybe black, maybe off-white OR maybe I'll just refinish the table. This is a tough decision for me. I don't dislike the wood finish ~ but the table is so worn and marked up. How would it look if I just painted the table or the table and chairs and left the hutch as it is?
