Dining Room Re-do



How much difference does a little color make?




Faded Clay is the color.
The dining room was the first room we
painted after we moved in.
We haven't made many changes in here since.






My goal is to one day replace the window with a pair of french doors to a garden room.
Hopes and dreams...something to wish for!







I think when I tire of this color we will put in a
wainscote and chair rail.
I'm kicking around the idea of purple
(eggplant) for the walls next! ;)

  9. Wonderful makeover. I love the color and have heard red is the optimum color for a dining room! LOVE those drapes. Your French door idea is a good one--always something to work towards. I think when you are finished with a house, it is time to move :)
