I have finished painting my dining room!
As I look at my pictures,
I am noticing this was more of a
exercise than a major change.
After all, I did only go from yellow to darker yellow.
This was the color I started with,
a bright, "lemony" yellow.
Note the rug.
In an effort to get "less fussy"
it is going away.
Actual painting is not really a part of the job that I dislike.
It's the total chaos and disorder you live with
while you're doing it.
Getting started by doing all the hand painted edging.
You can get an idea of the color change here.
This darker yellow is a more mustard yellow.
I have replaced the oriental rug
with a natural jute one.
I like how my recently painted
pop against the new yellow.
By the way, the yellow love seats
in the living room
will soon be slip covered in
an off white fabric.

One spring project done!
