Step 1: New sidetable
dining room, I told you that I planned on getting rid of the table and chairs in favor of a more "me" set. The good news is that I'm halfway there! The bad news is that I'm halfway there. My aunt recently took the table back to my grandma (who generously gave me the set in the first place). The chairs will soon follow the table home.
I could care less about not having a dining room table - this is something I can slowly replace. But it does make me wish that it was thrifting season. I really would love to find something I can fix up and make my own.
Step 2: Paint
When I painted the living room I told myself that would be the only room I'd paint. Then when I painted the bedroom I told myself that would be the last room. Now I'll be painting the dining room. This is why I don't make New Year's resolutions - I can't stick to my own decisions. At this point, I've painted two other rooms, what's one more?
I played around on Olympic's ColorClix website and found some colors I really love. If you check out the site, be patient because it takes awhile to load. It's worth the wait.
Now, don't freak out about this teal - this is a dream color. I would love to be able to paint my rooms in bold colors, but I eventually have to paint over all of this. But it looks nice, right? Also, a deep teal would clash with the blue in the living room. So, unfortunately, Caribbean Splash is out.
This paint color should look really nice with my white frames and dark furniture. Hmm...this might just need to be my weekend project.
