Well, since I have no takers on my last post about what color to paint the dining room, I forged ahead, brave soul that I am and picked out a dark gray/charcoal from Benjamin Moore called Anchor Gray. I painted it on my ‘try out’ board and leaned it up against the wall. Tomorrow, in the sunlight, I will take pics and post. I have decided to go with that dark gray charcoal color, paint the wainscoting an ivory and accent with turquoise and red. Here are my inspiration pics:
I was thinking about buying a large canvas and covering it in pretty wallpaper for art. Something like the material on this headboard:
Can’t wait! I will probably put this project into action sometime this weekend or next.
Happy Tuesday everyone,
