Status Update

A quick update on how the dining room painting project is going.

Yep, I've got the walls primed. That is it. Oh, and some random swatches of color painted because I couldn't resist.  

What color is it exactly? It's a blue/gray, I think, it is the same color as the kitchen.  In my humble decorating opinion, I decided I had too much color going on in my house, and needed to simplify.  So, blue it is.  Except that immediately after buying a gallon of blue paint, I read somewhere that blue is not a good color for a dining room. Makes the food appear unappetizing. Excellent.

I have big plans to paint, bring in NEW furniture from around my house and turn the dining room into a  usable room. Not just a dumping ground for random stuff that we push to the side when it is dinner time.  Sometimes my ideas are pretty crazy, and I feel that this may be one of them.

Oh well. My mom is coming on Sunday to help me paint. She didn't believe I could do it myself.  Which is good, because instead of painting tonight when the kids are in bed, I can continue my obsession with Netflix.

Thanks to you, all I can think of is painting rooms in my house, specifically my dining room! It suddenly seems so drab and grungy! I'm sure it has NOTHING to do with the hole in the ceiling. That just adds to the charm.....right?
