Dining Room

It’s project time! I’ve been way to wet this summer between the pool, beach, and the lake. I’m ready to dehydrate!

It’s my turn to host Mavens and Book club this month and I couldn’t be more excited. I’ve been wanting to paint my dining room for some time now and even paid a professional to help me pick the colors. Now, I have an excuse to get busy.

These are times that you have to “go with your gut”. The color she picked for the top was just a little to “yellow” for me – so I went a couple shades darker.


Before – Summer Suede


After! Top – Restrained Gold, Bottom – Mannered Gold

I absolutely love it. I’ll be honest, when I was painting I wasn’t so sure. It was a little bright for me, but now that it’s done, I feel like it was always meant to be those colors. It brings in a warmth that was needing.

What colors are your dining room?

  1. It looks fantastic! So sad I’ll miss both events and not get to see it in person. It really looks amazing. I love it!

  2. I love it. Love the colors. Mine is a light greenish color on top and white on the bottom. I saw those colors in the Pottery Barn mag years ago and had to do it. Now I’m loving your colors. I might just have to use those, I need a change. It’s been 6 or 7 years.

  3. Looks amazing – love the colors.

    And by the way, thanks for the book recommendations. I actually ordered first two in the series you recommended and they’ll be here in two days. CAN’T WAIT!

  4. It looks FABULOUS!!! I’m working on painting my dining room in a few months as well, thanks for the inspiration!!!

  6. It looks great! Good job!
    Our dining room is painted a deep red. My husband wanted to do it and I fought him on it for a while, but then gave in. I’m glad I did, I really like it now.

  7. My favorite picture is the first one with you looking so GIDDY!! You’re the only person I know that gets high not on paint fumes, but actually painting. Silly. It looks amazing though!! My dining room is next.

  8. Love the new look! And love your arrangements on the wall too. I’m ready to repaint my dining room too. Right now it is deep burgandy on the bottom, and a light grey on top. Painting the bathroom first – it’s amazing what a paint job will do to make everything look fresh and new!

  9. I love it too! We need to paint some walls in our house too, but the ceilings are so high. *sigh* I can just live vicariously through you, yours looks great! Oh, and you do have pretty teeth!:)
