Ever have that one room in your home that you just can't figure out?? Like where everything you try just doesn't work? That was my dining room for a long time. I had a farmhouse table that was a tank--big, brown and indestructible. I also had a white console table that I painted with milk paint (Hello, hours of painting. Why didn't anyone tell me that taking a cherry table and making it white with the most watery paint on the planet wasn't a great idea?? 3 hours, 10 coats, splatters of paint everywhere and I got an ok result...) Anyway, this room was fine. But, it felt meh.
So I decided to sell my table (even though my husband said, "What??! Why??!!) and start fresh. I found myself pinning pictures of dining rooms with white chairs and lighter wood tables, so that's what I ordered.
Ahh, light and fresh. The room felt better! I also moved in another console that I had previously painted a dusty blue color (Valspar's Divine Pepper). I have plans to paint the walls a light grey color this summer, but overall, this space feels more me. What do you think??
