Tweaking the Dining Room

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.
(Isn't it amazing how one change
brings about lots of
other changes.)

One spring project done!
A hundred more left to do…

I really like the new color! I had mustard walls in our dining room when we first moved in. I liked them, but I was out voted. Now they are a deep red. But I still like mustard. I have been thinking about changing out the Oriental carpet for a sea grass rug too. Enjoy your beautiful room!

I love your "tweaks" and I can't wait to see the slipcovers - it's all fabulous. After seeing your mirrored doors, I'm going to put a mirror in an old window for a bedroom redo. Thank you for sharing!

I love yellow! We just finished painting our breakfast room and kitchen a lovely shade of yellow, SW Humble Gold. Very pretty!

That yellow is beautiful. I like how it makes the woodwork glow. Nice choice.
